Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most hotly anticipated games that’s set to come out in 2020. Developer CD Projekt Red has the faith of the entire gaming community, due to their incredible work on The Witcher game series. 2015’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, especially, is what’s giving fans hope that Cyberpunk 2077 could be something special.
CD Projekt Red’s Pedigree
CD Projekt Red has already shown that they’re capable of creating a stunning open world that is densely packed with incredible stories. That’s the kind of template that is perfect for Cyberpunk 2077. Ever since they first announced it at E3 2013, fans have liked what they’ve seen of the game, too.
We’ve seen a lot of gameplay footage, cinematic trailers, and Keanu Reeves. All of it seems to be pointing in the direction that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be incredible. Another encouraging sign is the enthusiasm that Cyberpunk 2020 creator Mike Pondsmith has expressed about it. If the man who built the beloved tabletop game that Cyberpunk 2077 is based on, that can only be a good thing.
Massive Hype (Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date)
Clearly, the hype for this game is through the roof. Fans would rather not wait any longer for it than they absolutely must. However, due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, many private companies have decided to tell their employees to work from home.
Poland, where CD Projekt Red’s offices are based, has 38 confirmed cases of coronavirus. The Polish Health Minister is one of those cases, too. This is why CD Projekt Red has told its employees to shift to remote work completely, too.
This caused some concern among fans that Cyberpunk 2077 may face another delay. It has already moved from its original April 16, 2020, release date. However, CD Projekt Red quickly clarified that this would not be the case.
No Delay Due To COVID-19 (Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date)
In a statement released on their Twitter account, they confirmed that shifting to remote work would not affect their planned release date. They said that they have been “upgrading equipment & infrastructure and enabling our employees to work remotely, from the safety of their homes.”
They also added that “while all this is a bit new to everyone, we are rising to the challenge and showing no signs of stopping in our effort to bring you some kick-ass roleplaying action in September”. So, fans can breath easy and rest assured that they’ll get their game when they expect it.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 17, 2020.
