Cyberpunk 2077 delayed to September, multiplayer delayed until after 2021
In the wake of CD Projekt Red’s disappointing announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 would be delayed until September, gamers just took another left hook to the face: the multiplayer component of Cyberpunk 2077 likely won’t be ready until after 2021.
This news comes from an investor call published on CD Projekt Red’s website. Michał Nowakowski, senior vice president of business development, said that “2021 appears unlikely as a release date for the Cyberpunk multiplayer.”
While this news is hard to hear, CD Projekt Red should be applauded for its transparency. On the call, the company’s CEO Adam Kiciński stated that he wanted to hold a call with investors as soon as possible after the announcement of Cyberpunk 2077’s delay to clear up any questions. Additionally, posting the call in its entirety online is a show of good faith on CD Projekt Red’s part. Considering the company’s vocal stance on other industry practices like DRM, it’s not surprising that CDPR would be as open as they are about the delays.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now slated for release on September 17, 2020. The title will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.
