CD Projekt Red Announces Cyberpunk 2077 Delay

Despite this news not seeming like a good thing, remember The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt was also delayed for a few months before release. By the sounds of things, the game is essentially done so now they’re going to make sure it runs as good as it looks. After all A game of this size and scale will need lots of compressed files, and even then will likely be over 100 GB in size.

Let’s be honest, this is a project of very large proportions, rushing this thing for a release date could lead to massive bugs. I think I’m in the majority when I say I’m fine waiting a bit longer for a game that’s polished and runs smooth, verses a rushed game with game breaking bugs that won’t be fixed until at least a few months after launch.

This could also mean that Cyberpunk 2077 will get another year at E3 where we can see even more of the game before making the decision to buy it. Look at how smooth the Witcher 3 was, it’s still hailed by many as the best game of the 2010’s and it was also delayed.
