The Cyberpunk 2077 release date is set for 19 November 2020 after multiple delays. After the most recent delay, CD Projekt insisted that it’s the right decision for the game while apologising to players for making them wait longer.

The reason for the Cyberpunk 2077 delay to November is not because the game is not done. CD Projekt Red said it’s finished but needs more time to fine-tune the expansive game.

Release date

Cyberpunk 2077 will officially release on PS5 and Xbox Series X on 19 November 2020. The game will also be backwards compatible on both consoles meaning your PS4 or Xbox One version of the game will work on their respective successor from day one.

CD Projekt Red confirmed on Twitter that a later upgrade to Cyberpunk 2077, taking full advantage of the next-gen hardware, will be available for free on both next-gen consoles.

A Stadia release is expected later this year. You won’t, however, find it on Microsoft’s subscription service Xbox Game Pass.

Latest Updates

Full map

The full map of Cyberpunk 2077’s Night City has been leaked online. The contents of the physical box of the game Cyberpunk 2077 have been uploaded, including a paper satellite map view.

The leaked image shows the physical map from the box of the game opened up, giving a complete picture of Night City from Watson to Pacifica. It looks like we will be exploring for a while.

Three life paths

When you jump into the world of Cyberpunk 2077, you will need to choose the origin story for your character. The choice is between Street Kid, Nomad, and Corpo and whichever you choose will play a part in how certain things unfold within the game.

Street Kids are born within Night City and will be savvier in certain situations than their Nomad counterparts who have been raised in the Badlands beyond the city’s borders.

If you choose Corpo, you will feel more at home in a boardroom. You obviously have the smarts to climb high in a corporation but can you handle yourself out on the streets?

Each lifepath will have a distinct impact on progression routes, dialogue options and various other opportunities throughout the game.

Companions are important

Philipp Weber, the quest designer, explains:

“There are quite a few people that can go with players on specific missions, or just join them on a drive in the game. These characters will be very important and that many of them have not actually been shown yet. Depending on your choices in the game, some of the characters will become V’s friends; some will become enemies, and some might become lovers. It is all up to you”.

Variety of weapons

There are a huge variety of weapons to choose from in Cyberpunk 2077. Melee and CyberWare weapon types range from Thermal Katanas to Mantis Blades. Weapons are broken down into various classes such as Tech, Power, and Smart weapons.

Tech weapons have incredible power and can be used to break through walls or other barricades. Power weapons will allow you to bounce bullets off surfaces to reach targets that seem impossible to hit. Smart weapon projectiles will be able to track targets even if they are on the move.

Each weapon type will have its own customisation options so you will be able to add attachments such as scopes, silencers or add mods to alter things like fire rate or accuracy.

If you manage to get your hands on a legendary weapon, you will be rewarded with far more firepower than a lesser version.

Listen to music

Interactive dialogue and immersion

Cyberpunk 2077 is going for interactivity and immersion even in its dialogue scenes.

The game will also allow you to look around and observe your surroundings; instead of being forced to watch your avatar stand still from one angle during dialogue scenes.
