Am not surprised. The same thing happened to The Witcher 3 and it all worked out in the end.

And come on. If there's one developer we can make allowances for delaying it's these guys. Yeah it sucks but I'd rather they fix and polish what they can before the release date so that they don't pull a Bethesda.

Holy shit, they did it, lmaooooooo!

Welp, like I said in the thread about this potentially happening, more marination is not a bad thing! Let's look on the bright side!

Also good GOD, that's SO far away! :messenger_loudly_crying:

Last of Us 2 - Delayed from February to May
Final Fantasy VII - Delayed from March to April

Its kinda offputting how CDPR were bold with ''Its ready when its ready'' anthem and give out a release date as if they stand by it only to delay the game. Not saying the game wont have extra finesse after the delay.




I have seen countless big publishers do this with their titles with same excuse and at this point, i just think its some psychological marketing to get people even more hyped up for the release. Money talks.

I'm honestly kind of happy about this. The first few months of this year were way too packed with games I wanted to play and I really want CDProjekt to get this right. If they need more time, I want them to take it.

They should just take a "when it's done" approach at this point. It's alright though, I can wait for them to get it to where it needs to be.

Well at least is gonna be super optimized...

Games with this giant scope needs more time in the oven compared to copypaste openworld from ubisoft...

Also 17 september is one day before my birthday, i'm gonna have the best gift of the last 10 years.

Well there’s another game that can wait until next gen then. I’m not buying anything after Sept 1, until I have my new machine.

delays have happened for far too long in this industry that if your are irked by a delay thats more of an isolated "you" problem now.

delays and broken/unfinished releases are so commonplace that no one should be surprised or annoyed.

SE certainly knows they’re delayed a few days ago. CP2077 will be optimized to utilize ampere cards power and provide a real next gen experience with rtx 3080 estimated around 18tflops.

Given the importance of this title for CDPR, with the next console cycle set to begin this coming holiday season, it makes sense to postpone the game and time its release with the new systems. Even if the current-gen game does launch in September, I imagine we'll have info & dates on when people could instead opt to purchase versions for the new hardware.

Not happy about it but I'm happy to see that they're spending all this time on polishing the game even though it's already fully playable.
