After the postponements of The Last of Us Part II, Iron Man VR and Wasteland 3 recently announced because of the pandemic of COVID-19, many have begun to wonder how this problem may affect programs that launch games output in 2020. In the case of the title, probably the most awaited, there should be no problems.
According to the president of CD Projekt, Adam Kiciński, the release date of Cyberpunk 2077, scheduled for September 2020, it will still be respected, even if the Coronavirus has had a significant impact on the study work on the game. “From mid-march to working from home, ensuring the continuity of all of our operations. Our objectives have not changed; first of all, we will launch the Cyberpunk 2077 in September,” said Kiciński. “We are motivated and we have the tools necessary to achieve this goal. In addition, we believe that our strategy to avoid debt and to accumulate reserves of liquidity may make us well prepared to face any difficulties that may be in store in these difficult times.”
This is the second time that the team at CD Projekt declared that it will launch the Cyberpunk 2077 on the date announced. Just last month, CD Projekt Red has issued a statement that mirrors that of Kiciński to say that, despite these new conditions of work, the long-awaited title will be released on scheduled date.
When Cyberpunk 2077 has been postponed to the beginning of 2020, CDPR has made it clear that the game was fully playable from beginning to end, and that he only need more bug fixes and tests to meet the standard of the study. Maybe this is what CD Projekt continues to feel so sure of getting to the launch date.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Staff on September 17.
