Cyberpunk 2077, a game announced in 2012 and has seen countless delays, has been delayed once again. While still hitting in 2020, CD Projekt Red announced today it's pushing the release of what is this year's most anticipated game by 21 days, now releasing on December 10th.
The news, announced on Twitter earlier this morning cites the challenge of testing 9 different versions of the expansive RPG, all while working from home.

CDPR also addressed the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 recently went gold, meaning that the content is locked and the game is "ready."
"Some of you might also be wondering what these words mean in light of us saying we achieved gold master some time ago. Passing certification, or 'going gold,' means the game is ready, can be completed, and has all the content in it. But it doesn't mean we stop working on it and raising the quality bar. On the contrary, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we undercalculated."
With the Cyberpunk delay, chances are the team will still need to crunch to finish the title, especially after reports that the team was being required to work six days a week now, though as Bloomberg's Jason Schreier reports, many employees had long been working those hours alreday in order to finish the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 will now release on December 10th on Xbox One S|X, Xbox Series S|X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC and Google Stadia.
