Any Upcoming Cyberpunk Updates Have Been Delayed to 2022
Cyberpunk 2077 fans have already been made aware by CD Projekt Red last week that the title’s next-gen ports are going to be delayed until 2022. Just recently, the company updated its development roadmap for Cyberpunk 2077 and gave their followers a more detailed look at the delay. Sadly, this has confirmed that there will be no more expected updates about Cyberpunk 2077 for this year.
CDPR’s roadmap for the game was updated to reflect what projects are currently in development, as well as further information on when they are going to be released to the market. “Updates, improvements, and free DLCs” will now be released sometime in 2022. The game was originally scheduled to get fixes and new content by the end of 2021.
Unfortunately for inquiring minds, Cyberpunk 2077 devs did not provide any explanation for this change. All the gaming community knows is that the delay was based on “recommendations supplied by persons supervising development.” However, it is worth noting that it does come on the heels of CDPR’s announcement last week that their planned next-gen updates for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077 have been pushed to an undisclosed exact date next year.
“Apologies for the extended wait,” the devs wrote in their statement. “But, we want to make it right.”
Cyberpunk 2077 fans are well aware that getting the game to play efficiently for Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 consoles would be the company’s top priority. After all, that is where the game could potentially get higher revenues. Cyberpunk 2077 jumped in sales when it returned to the PlayStation Store earlier this year—despite having a disclaimer that “users continue to experience performance issues with this game.”
CDPR has rolled out over 10 patches for Cyberpunk 2077 since the game’s very troubled launch, and they have promised to send out even more, including a free DLC and a next-gen console update, following patch 1.3—which, in turn, was released just this August.
