The developer CD Projekt RED has postponed the release date of Cyberpunk 2077 several times. Now rumors are surfacing again. The studio is now responding to fans on Twitter.
According to CD Project RED, the release of the game is not in danger. There should be no further postponements – Cyberpunk 2077 will definitely be released on November 19, 2020, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
At the same time, the current CD Project RED annual report made the astronomical development costs of the game known.
Warsaw, Poland – In March 2012, the world first heard about developer CD Projekt RED was working on a sci-fi role-playing game called Cyberpunk 2077. Well, eight years later the game still hasn’t appeared, but it’s closer to gamers than ever. In order to take the fear of further, unexpected postponements away from fans, CD Projekt RED made a final statement on the release of the mammoth game.
Cyberpunk 2077 Release will No Longer Be Postponed
No more postponements. Cyberpunk 2077 will definitely be delivered on November 19, 2020, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One by CD Project RED, according to CEO Adam Kicinski of the Warsaw-based company. Any fan concerns should be fired from the world for now after these clear words.
A small catch remains, however, in the course of the release statement, not a word was mentioned about the next-gen version of the game. It is not yet entirely clear whether the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of CD Projekt RED‘s new work will be asked a little more.

What is already evident, however, is that Cyberpunk 2077 will probably go down in history as one of the most expensive video games of all time. The new business report from CD Projekt RED gives a deep insight into the development costs of the Polish game manufacturer.
A total of $121 million is said to have flowed into the development of the game and other unannounced projects. In May, CEO Adam Kicinski announced in an interview that CD Projekt RED had already started work on another single-player game. Most of the $121 million budget will probably have gone into the years of development of the sci-fi epic Cyberpunk 2077.
How are you not bankrupt yet? These fifa points are costly… Oh ya! You're the coolest twitter guy!

Fans Can Expect Monstrous Proportions in CD Projekt RED’s New Epic
CD Projekt RED had to postpone Cyberpunk 2077 twice in the past. Originally, the role-playing game was supposed to see the light of day in April. The game was later postponed to September and, after its last postponement, to November.
The reasons for the delays were the global corona pandemic and the will of the Polish developer to get even more out of the title. Of course, with such astronomical development costs, nothing should go wrong with the release of Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 recently made headlines with fans for its alleged download size of 200GB. The company put it into perspective shortly afterward. At the moment, rather loosely flaky 100GB are expected from the sci-fi role-playing game.
