CDPR has announced that Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed yet again. The game has been in development for around 8 years now and while some people are not happy with this decision most of the fans support the delay. Fan and brands took to Twitter to support the delay of Cyberpunk 2077 and some of the comments are actually great to read.

CDPR has announced that the release date for Cyberpunk 2077 has been moved from September 17 to November 19. So a little more than 2 months. This is not the first time that the game has been delayed but this is the impact of COVID-19 and the fact that CDPR does not support crunch culture.

You can check out the official development update below that mentions the new release date for Cyberpunk 2077 and why the decision to delay the game was made.

The development update has got a lot of attention. In less than a day the tweet got 55.6K retweets and 196.7k likes on Twitter. Brands and fans from all over the world expressed their disappointment but supported CDPR’s decision of delaying Cyberpunk 2077 so that the company can release a finished game that aligns with the vision of the developers.

Companies like Razer and Lenovo showed their support. Gamers and influencers like Naomi Kyle and JackSepticEye also showed their support. You can check out some of the positive comments on the tweet below:

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.
