CD Projekt RED explained that he understands the «so many emotions and questions in your heads, so first, accept our humble apologies » .
«The biggest challenge for us right now is to deliver the game on current-gen, next-gen and PC at the same time, which requires preparing and testing 9 versions (Xbox One / X, compatibility on Xbox Series S / X, PS4 / Pro, compatibility on PS5, PC, Stadia)… while we work from home », argued the Polish studio.
«Since Cyberpunk 2077 has evolved to be almost a next-gen title at some point along the way , we need to make sure everything is running smoothly and every version runs smoothly.
We understand that it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make a difference in such a complex and huge game, but they really do. “
The software house also specified that the fact that all these are happening after entering the Gold phase, a more unique than rare case in the history of gaming, implies that « many improvements are being made and will be distributed in a Day 0 patch. This is the period whose length we underestimated ».
Something went wrong, in short, in the evaluation of the time it would take in the passage from the Gold phase , in which the disks and codes are printed, to the finalization of the patch which would contain all the refinements downloadable with a download when starting the game.
The much discussed crunch was useless, in essence, since yet another postponement proved necessary to get to the release date, which only this month had been explained would also coincide for Stadia for November 19.
