Thoughts: Cyberpunk 2077 Delay

This year, it seems that they were waiting for the release of Cyberpunk 2077, the latest game of CD Projekt RED. The game was first announced in May 2012. Yes, eight years ago, the first trailer wasn’t seen until January 2013, seven years ago. The initial release date for Cyberpunk 2077 was April 16th. However, this year’s CD Projekt RED has decided to postpone the game due to the need for further finishing and crunch time. The game was postponed to September 17, and fans were hoping to get the game around that time. Later, CD Projekt RED reported that employees were forced to work tirelessly for long periods of time and had to work more than necessary in the game.

The latest delay announcement for CD Projekt RED.

Fast forward to June when the game is again postponed to November 19th. Game fans were curious about whether the game would be released and wondered why the game continued to be pushed back. CD Projekt RED apologized for wanting to provide players with the best possible version of the game. Many, including myself, wondered if they were working on the next generation version of the game, given that they pushed the game to be released on November 19th, shortly after the new console was released. .. As the November release date approaches, CD Projekt RED made the latest announcement on Twitter, saying, “Please accept the humble apology,” informing the world that the game will be delayed again. This time on all platforms until December 10th. The game is set to be released on nine different platforms, including the current generation (Xbox One and OneX, PS4), the next generation (Xbox Series S & X, PS5), and PC. This is due to the large number of consoles that need to release a single game. Especially considering that CD Projekt RED spends a lot of effort on its employees to make the game available to as many people as possible. A lot for me.

CD Projekt RED wants a lot of people to experience the most anticipated games of the current generation, but trying to release one game on nine different platforms is a bit daunting. I think. Am I very curious why they didn’t release the game staggered? Why they simply release the game on the current generation, then release the game individually on the next generation platform, use Smart Delivery on the Xbox, or use similar means on the PlayStation 4 for people to play the game Didn’t you play? Even soon. Don’t you know why you keep everyone waiting at once to get rid of spoilers? I’m a little worried because this game is likely to be one of the best video games ever made. The game may be exaggerated, or there may be bugs or glitches in the game. I’m helping developers delay the game to get the best version of the game possible, but if it’s too late, this kind of idea backfires and gamers never get it. I’m sure you might feel like that. In this game. CD Projekt RED wants to get this game to as many people as possible, but it makes more sense to get it to as many people as possible rather than always having to push back. I think again and again. The reason for the delay again is to make sure the game is ready for the next generation console. This makes sense, but I don’t understand that I don’t need to release the current generation of games just to see the next generation. -gen is ready.

Senior game designer Andrzej Zawadzki used Twitter to criticize the recent murder threats he and his team received.

The time crunch in the video game industry is nothing new. After the release of Rockstar Games Red Dead Redemption 2, there have been multiple time crunch reports that employees are awkward and need to work overnight and stay in the office to ensure that the game has been released in a timely manner. did. I understand that I want to be as perfect as possible when the game is released, but developers always have the option to release patches later to fix bugs and bugs after the game is released. I’m waiting. CD Projekt RED is also threatened with murder because the game was delayed again. Andrzej Zawadzki, senior game designer for CD Projekt RED, visited Twitter last week to see many other people working on the game with him. When I speak against game delays, I firmly believe that the threat of killing is by no means a means, and those who do this are pathetic.

I think CD Projekt RED should have made a gradual release of the game and waited for the release of the next generation version of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but I still completely trust that CD Projekt RED makes the right decision. For games and their releases. However, recently, despite announcing the December release date, it was announced that they were not confident in setting that date as the release date. We hope the game will be released by the end of the year, but it seems that we all just have to wait and see.
