CD Projekt RED was indeed targeting a 2019 release for Cyberpunk 2077, may release in early 2020

Back in September 2017, we informed you about a Turkish listing for Cyberpunk 2077 which suggested that this highly anticipated title was scheduled for a 2019 release. And from the looks of it, that listing was legit as according to Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, CD Projekt RED was indeed targeting a 2019 release for Cyberpunk 2077.

A few days ago, Schreier tweeted that Cyberpunk 2077 will not be coming out in 2019. And yesterday, Kotaku’s journalist shared some additional details about the release date window of CD Projekt RED’s upcoming RPG.

According to Schreier’s sources, Cyberpunk 2077 was indeed targeting a 2019 release, however most of CD Projekt RED’s employees believed that it was an unrealistic target.

CD Projekt RED has stated that E3 2019 will be the most important E3 for Cyberpunk 2077, meaning that we’ll finally learn more details about it (and the team will most likely reveal its release date window). As we’ve said, our guess is that this RPG will be coming out in 2020, something with which Schreier agrees.

Schreier suggest that it’s unlikely to see Cyberpunk 2077 coming out in 2019 and he is certain that the game will be delayed (obviously at a later date) if CD Projekt RED reveals a “Fall 2019” release window for it.

Still, and from what we know so far, CD Projekt RED was indeed planning to release the game later this year (though a 2020 release appears more likely right now).

When asked about whether other companies have done such “planned” delays in the past, Schreier had this to say.

Stay tuned for more!
