A couple of days ago, CD Projekt RED announced that Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed until December 10th. Apparently, though, this has forced two studios to delay their upcoming projects. These projects are: Path of Exile’s December Expansion and EVERSPACE 2’s Early Access.
As Grinding Gear stated:
“Yesterday, CD Projekt Red announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will now be released on December 10. We do not want to put our players in a position of having to choose between these two games, so we have decided to step out of the way and delay the release of Path of Exile 3.13 until January.
We still expect to finish 3.13 by early/mid-December. The scope of this expansion will remain unchanged. During the month of delay before release, we will start work on the 3.14 expansion.”
Rockfish Games added:
“We know from our community that there is quite an audience overlap between the two titles, so we decided to get out of the way and push back our release to January. We are aware that EVERSPACE 2 fans will be unhappy, but competing with the arguably most anticipated video game in history isn’t the best idea.”
