The release date for the highly anticipated and probably over-hyped Cyberpunk 2077 has been changed yet again. This is the umpteenth time that the game has been delayed if you can actually call this a delay (I suppose technically it is a delay).
In a very recent Tweet, Cyberpunk 2077 publisher and developer CD Projekt has announced that the game will now release on December 19th 2020. A 21-day delay from its most recently planned release date of November 19th.

CD Projekt states that the extra 21 days is needed to fully test all nine versions fo the game to make sure they run smoothly on each platform.
The biggest challenge for us right now is shipping the game on current-gen, next-gen and PC at the same time.
Cyberpunk 2077 recently went gold, meaning that the game had passed certification and game discs would be printed. In thier annoucnement, CD Projekt states that although the game is essentially ready, it doesn’t mean they just stop working on it.
The developer states that any improvememnts made after the game has gone gold will be distributed via a day 0 patch. It si this timescale between going gold and making the further improvememtns that they have miscalcualted.
