Why would you think moving the launch date costs you trust? As far as I'm concerned, it increases the trust I have in you, and the quality of the upcoming game, because you prefer putting out something good, rather than throw it out as quickly as possible.

When you accept that the delay is not bad if it guarantees a better game: pic.twitter.com/qhEf9Uwks2

"A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad."
Plus it's only 2 months, it's not that bad.

While it is sad that we will not be able to play the game as soon as we thought we do support the delay of Cyberpunk 2077. It would have been a great time for this game to come out with COVID-19 making life harder than it already is but we have waited so much already, another 2 months are not going to be that bad.
Update: CDPR has confirmed that people that buy Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4 and Xbox One will get upgraded to PS5 and XSX for free. The following is what CD Projekt exec Michał Nowakowski had to say regarding the matter:
I can confirm this is not the final update. At some point, we will have a more robust update for next-gen which we plan to give free of charge to anyone who purchases the PS4 or Xbox One version. But in any case you will be able to play the game on next-gen from 19th November when the game releases and it will look better than on current-gen from that moment as well.
With the game being delayed to close to the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, we can hope that the game will be enhanced for the next-generation of consoles. While this has not been confirmed by CDPR, it does make sense.
Let us know what you think about Cyberpunk 2077 being delayed yet again and whether or not this changes your pre-order.
