Updated (June 26, 2020)

Check out new gameplay from Delayed Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 may have been delayed again, but as a patch on the wounds, developer CD Projekt Red has released a new official trailer for the upcoming cyberpunk adventure as well as a review of the game’s Braindance system

The Gig trailer showcases the game’s world, graphics, characters, some of the missions, driving, multiple action sequences and (of course) Keanu Reeves. All clips should come from the beginning of the game.

The Braindance clip is instead a longer clip that goes through the Braindance feature that lets the game’s main character access other characters’ recorded memories and analyze the content.

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently scheduled to be released November 19 for PC, Playstation 4, Stadia and Xbox One. The game will also show up for the upcoming Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Cyberpunk 2077 delayed, again

CD Projekt Red’s futuristic role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed yet again.

The game, which was originally to be released April 16, was delayed in January to September 17, but now it is clear that it will take until November 19 before it is released.

CD Project Red writes simultaneously via Twitter that the game is complete. The reason for the delay is because the developers need extra time to remove all the bugs that are likely to occur in such a large and complex work.

The development of Cyberpunk 2077 was originally presented in 2012.

Updated (Jan 17, 2020):

Cyberpunk 2077 delayed until September

Developer and publisher CD Projekt Red has now announced that their upcoming role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed. The game, which was originally released April 16, will now show up on September 17.

CD Projekt Red says that the game is complete and playable, but that they need more time to play test, fix and polish it.

Cyberpunk 2077 is not the only major game that moved from spring 2020 that previously looked completely unpacked. In the past, games like The Last of Us Part 2, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Watch Dogs: Legion and others have been affected by delays.

This is Cyberpunk 2077

One of the hottest games in the near future is the upcoming sci-fi adventure Cyberpunk 2077. The developer CD Project Red has previously made the acquaintance with The Witcher series, the third of which became one of the most acclaimed games when it was released in 2015.

Just like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077 is also an open-world role-playing game. However, it takes place in futuristic environments that feel drawn from films like Blade Runner and games like Deus Ex.

Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay

In Cyberpunk 2077 you play the mercenary “V”, a character you can tailor entirely to your own taste. It also includes various cybernetic body modifications, as the theme of the game is transhumanism (the advocacy of using technology to expand human physical and mental abilities).

In addition to physical attributes, in classic role-play ways we can also choose what kind of attributes our character should focus on learning further. We can choose between becoming hackers, experts in machinery or pure battles. The interesting thing in this context is that your choices open up different ways to get through the game’s story.

One detail that is also intended to increase the sense of presence is that the entire game, including intermediate sequences, takes place in the first-person perspective. This may deter some people coming directly from the third-person adventure The Witcher 3, but basically Cyberpunk 2077 is also a role-play first and foremost.

Platforms and launch

Cyberpunk 2077 is currently scheduled to be released April 16, 2020, September 17, 2020 November 19. The confirmed formats are PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. In addition, CD Projekt Red recently surprised us with the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 is also scheduled to be launched on Google’s new gaming service Stadia. So far, there are no plans for a version for Nintendo Switch (or its notorious Pro upgrade).
