CD Projekt Red Quietly Delays Further Cyberpunk 2077 Updates into 2022

The next-gen version was also pushed back last week.

Last week, CD Projekt Red delayed Cyberpunk 2077’s PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions into next year. However, the company is also delaying general updates and free DLC for the game, it just didn’t make as big of a to-do about it.

The studio released a statement shortly after the game’s launch last December about its commitment to bettering Cyberpunk 2077 after its disastrous launch, and it included a roadmap for how the company was planning on improving the game. While the studio didn’t draw attention to it, the roadmap graphic was updated on October 28, and has moved all updates post Patch 1.31, the update that went live last month, into the 2022 window. So whatever state Cyberpunk 2077 is in now is where it will be when we reach the one-year anniversary in December, and for the rest of 2021.

Cyberpunk 2077’s development has been rocky long before it launched in busted state on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as reports say CD Projekt Red was in mandatory crunch mode in an attempt to avoid delaying the game. The game was still pushed into December of last year anyway, but still could have used a lot more time than it was given as evidenced by the game we got. Some reports even alleged that workers were threatened into overworking, but the company pinky swore the team wouldn’t be crunching to salvage the game post-launch. CD Projekt Red has said its goal is to get Cyberpunk 2077 into a state where it could be sold for several years. After being delisted from the PlayStation Store near launch, the game was re-added to the storefront back in June.
