Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, and is set in Night City - a vast and sprawling metropolis. In a testament to the hype surrounding Cyberpunk 2077's release, CD PROJEKT RED's original post garnered over 50,000 likes and more than 10,000 retweets in under an hour, with little indication of slowing down. Instead of core story, content or environmental changes, the delay is primarily motivated by the need for additional "playtesting, fixing and polishing". In September, CD Projekt Red confirmed multiplayer but stressed that it'd launch after Cyberpunk 2077 was bolstered by several singleplayer add-ons.

CD Projekt Red also promised more frequent updates on the game's progress, particularly as the revised release date approaches.

SoftBank reportedly gave Oyo a deadline of March 31, 2020, to phase out contracts or businesses that are not EBITDA-profitable. The South American delivery service Rappi and the new carpool company San Francisco Getaround said they were firing employees.

In their explanation, they explain that the game is in a playable state and finished. Night City is a huge corporate-controlled metropolis in the Free State of California, with six different regions for players to explore, each with their own rival factions and gangs. AND THEN, Keanu bloody Reeves walked onstage to announce the release date.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed. After all, Cyberpunk 2077 was releasing in April 2020 and we haven't seen any new screenshots or trailers these past few weeks.

Citing a desire to produce its "crowning achievement for this generation", CD Projekt Red took the decision to postpone the release of Cyberpunk 2077. Can you possibly wait until September to explore the neon darkness of Night City?
