In sad news for gamers, the most anticipated game of 2020, Cyberpunk 2077, has been pushed back until December 10. Cyberpunk 2077 was originally set for a street date of November 19. This is the games 3rd date change as it was originally set for release on April 16, then September 17, November 19 and finally, December 10.
CD Projekt Red have blamed the delay on the enormous task of pushing the game out across 9 different consoles and two generations of hardware.
The push back comes a couple of weeks after in was announced that CD Projekt Red, the developers of the title, were requiring their staff to enter ‘crunch time’. Crunch time is an industry term meaning mandatory overtime. Many developers in the gaming industry force this upon their staff in order to successfully reach release dates. This is something many in and out of the industry have campaigned against for years.
Following the news, the gaming community was understandable furious. However, it has since been revealed that many have gone way to far with their opinions and feelings. Many developers and staff from the company have received threatening and unbelievably uncool messages. This kind of behaviour is sadly rampant across social media, not just in the gaming community, but across all forms of entertainment.
The most recent Cyberpunk 2077 delay will hopefully be the last for this hotly anticipated game. Check out this article on all of the games trailers that have been released thus far.
