Through a statement released via their official twitter handle, CD Projekt Red (CDPR) revealed that the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 will not make its April release windows and will instead launch in September. 

Honestly, this is good news! The March-April window is crowded as is, with Ori and the Will of the Wisps dropping first on March 11, Doom Eternal on March 20, Half-Life: Alyx expected in March, Resident Evil 3 Remake on April 3 and Final Fantasy VII Remake on April 10. That’s a crowded window of big triple-A titles to release a game in. 

On the other hand, September so far only has two big releases Marvel’s Avengers which itself was delayed out of May to September 4 and now Cyberpunk 2077 on September 17. 

Besides, the delay is only buying the studio time to polish the game.

Night City is massive — full of stories, content, and places to visit,” CDPR said in the released statement signed off on by co-founder Marcin Iwinski and the studio head Adam Badowski, “but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing, and polishing. We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation, and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.

The September release date is also curiously close to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X release dates which could mean we could see it on next-generation consoles as well. 

In the meanwhile, here’s a deep dive video into some of the game systems 

Or the nearly 50-minute gameplay video, which was shown off at E3 2018

CDPR also revealed an all-star line-up for the game’s soundtrack featuring Run The Jewels, ASAP Rocky, Grimes, Refused and more. 

Oh…and John Wick himself will be in Cyberpunk 2077
