The Cyberpunk 2077 release date has been delayed to September 17, meaning it won’t be hacking into our digital lives for a few months yet. The game is complete, says developer CD Projekt Red, but the extra time allows for more polish, and you can expect new teasers, trailers, and gameplay footage in the coming months leading up to release.
CYBERPUNK 2077 RELEASE DATE:
The Cyberpunk 2077 release date is September 17, 2020. It wasn’t always that way, as the game’s first official teaser trailer stated it would come out “when it’s ready.” It didn’t have a solid date attached to it until the E3 2019 trailer, which gave it an April 16, 2020 launch date. That was the constantly touted Cyberpunk 2077 release date for six months until the latest (and hopefully last) delay.
WHAT IS CYBERPUNK 2077?
Cyberpunk 2077 is a neon cyberpunk game that has The Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red moving from a gritty, high fantasy world to an equally gritty, science fiction world metropolis. It’s based on the pen-and-paper RPG of the same name but plays a hell of a lot like The Matrix game we’ve always wanted.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a game that looks vastly different from its developer’s The Witcher series, with towering neon skyscrapers, bionic enhancements, and a focus on vertical movement rather than wide-open plains. It’s also all in first-person.

CYBERPUNK 2077 FEATURES
That’s according to CD Projekt, the parent company of Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red, which suggested during a recent earnings call (via VGC) that, while the game will still release in September and will be available on Xbox Series X “from the get-go”, an enhanced, next-gen version will be released at a later date.
“In terms of Microsoft’s console, as I said, we have officially confirmed both the update and the cross-gen availability, meaning that you’ll be able to play the game from the get-go on the next-gen,” CD Projekt SVP of business development Michal Nowakowski said during the call.
