CD PROJEKT RED, the developer of the dystopian game Cyberpunk 2077, takes another three weeks to finish the game. That means that the game is expected to be available on December 10, the company announced on Tuesday Twitter.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set in a dystopian future in the fictional Night City, an urban region “obsessed with power, glamor and body modifications”. In the game, the player takes on the role of V, who can adjust and improve his or her body with the help of technology.
It’s the third time that Cyberpunk 2077 is postponed. Initially, the game would be available in April. CD PROJEKT announced at the beginning of this year that it would need an extra five months. In the summer, another two months were added.
The developer says it will need the extra 21 days to ensure that the game can be played on all platforms simultaneously. Cyberpunk 2077 will also be available for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, the latest video game consoles available for purchase from November.
Actor Keanu Reeves also has a role in the game, in the form of the character Johnny Silverhand. It is unclear exactly how big Silverhand’s role in the story is, and even whether the character is alive or just a digital version of himself.
