Greetings, Programs! I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the Cyberpunk 2077 delay is even worse than you knew. As you probably already know and have wept tears of sorrow over, the game’s original Apr. 16 release date slipped to Sept. 17.

At least it’s the same year, right? Meh.
That wouldn’t be so terrible if the Cyberpunk 2077 delay was just a few months and then the full game would hit the shelves. Not for nothing, the game was first announced way back in the distant past of 2013. And even then, it looked pretty goddamn cool.
Since then, there’s been retooling for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 and, oh, Keanu Reeves is in it so, yeah, we can wait a little longer.
But that’s just the single-player game. The multiplayer was already going to come out at a later time. Now it’s not due out until 2022. And that’s if we’re lucky!
During a Q and A phone call with investors that developer CD Projekt Red published online, it was explained “2021 appears unlikely” as a target release date for the multiplayer part of Cyberpunk 2077:
Given the expected release of Cyberpunk 2077 in September, and frankly speaking of the series of events we expect to occur after that date, 2021 appears unlikely as a release date for the Cyberpunk multiplayer. – Michal Nowakowski – SVP Bussiness Development
