With a growing number of game delays in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, one might be worried about the Cyberpunk 2077 release date. Today, CD Projekt RED has put out an announcement easing any concerns — we should still be getting their upcoming cyberpunk RPG on time.
The entire team at CD Projekt has shifted to a remote work scheme. Some other publishers have noted that this may (or will) cause delays for their games, but the Witcher developer seems to have a handle on things.
"There is no shortage of motivation and we also possess all the tools needed to facilitate remote work," said CD Projekt's President and CEO Adam Kiciński. "We’ve been operating in this mode for over three weeks and to-date results confirm that we can carry on with all our operations without major disruptions."
Despite the difficulties facing businesses around the world, CD Projekt had an absolutely stellar year. They racked up 512 million zł (≈$122,721,875_ in sales revenues across the entire company in Fiscal Year 2019 — a total of 44% more than the previous year.
Furthermore, the Cyberpunk 2077 devs tend to have a policy of avoiding debt and keeping cash in reserve. This strategy should allow them to weather the remote work storm and will hopefully mean that we won't face any additional delays for Cyberpunk 2077 beyond the one we've already gotten this year.
When is the Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date?
Thanks to CD Projekt's overall strategy and the extra buffer of time from their first delay earlier this year, the Cyberpunk 2077 release date should still be sometime in September 2020. Unfortunately, we still don't have a specific date.
Mind, this isn't the only good news from the Cyberpunk 2077 devs — they also highlighted their other successes in a recap blog post. You can also take a peek at its full financial results for the last year if you want to get really nerdy about it.
In the meantime, you might be thinking about putting in a pre-order for the game. It wouldn't be a bad idea considering how rough shipping things has been for the last few weeks! You can get the base game or one of its super-cool deluxe editions over at cyberpunk.net.
