Cyberpunk 2077 is “ready” on PC, and “plays well” on next-gen consoles, with current-gen versions currently being worked on after the game’s most recent delay. CD Projekt Red also says there should be no knock-on delay to the game’s expansions.
Speaking on a conference call after the game’s delay to December 10 (reported by Pap Business), CD Projekt CEO Adam Kicinski explained that there would be no further delays, and that this most recent push back was a different situation to previous release date changes. “The game for PC is ready and plays well on next-gen consoles and the company is finalizing the process concerning current gen consoles.”
That suggests that current-gen console performance was the reason for the delay – something IGN has heard independently from sources close to CD Projekt Red.
It’s worth pointing out that the version running on next-gen consoles is almost certainly the same as the current-gen edition – true PS5 and Xbox Series upgrades aren’t arriving until next year, and are likely lower down CDPR’s development priorities ahead of the launch.
Asked if there had been knock-on effects because of the current delay CD Projekt’s SVP of Business Development, Michal Nowakowski explained that there had been no impact on planned expansions to the game,
