KEY POINTS

  • "Cyberpunk 2077" is rumored to be delayed for the fourth time
  • CD Projekt Red confirmed the game is still set for a Dec. 10 launch
  • "Cyberpunk 2077" will launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Stadia

Game developer CD Projekt Red confirmed that "Cyberpunk 2077" is still set for its release next month, following rumors that the game would face another delay and might not come out until 2021.

CD Projekt Red reaffirmed the official Dec. 10 release date of "Cyberpunk 2077," according to IGN. A CD Projekt Red representative shared the information with the publication, and mentioned that it does not comment on rumors or speculations. "But I will confirm we were [sic] just taking time to update all of our assets to reflect the new launch date of December 10th," the representative told the site.

The gaming studio’s unexpected confirmation surfaced after several sites reported about the possibility that "Cyberpunk 2077" might be delayed for the fourth time. The rumor was most likely triggered by a tweet from an industry insider, seemingly teasing the likelihood of the game's launch being postponed again.

The tweet does not confirm anything; however, since the account previously predicted the cancellation of E3 2020 a week before it was announced, some fans think it could be a reliable one. Another possible source of rumors is the removal of the game’s release date on its official Twitter account’s bio.

The futuristic RPG title's release has already been delayed several times. Its launch was originally scheduled for April 2020, but was moved to September 2020. In June, CD Projekt Red announced that the game's release would be pushed to Nov. 19. In October, the gaming studio announced that the game’s release would be pushed back for three more weeks because of issues with its Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.

The most recent release delay announcement was not taken lightly by several fans. Some disgruntled fans started making death threats against CDPR devs. Andrzej Zawadzki, the game's lead designer, condemned those fans on Twitter and reminded them that devs are humans too.

As for the industry insider's tweet, it is worth noting that while the account has been accurate in the past, its latest tweet about the game doesn't guarantee anything.

"Cyberpunk 2077" is set to launch on PC, Stadia, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is also anticipated to be released on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
