[Update]: In order to avoid Cyberpunk 2077, Path of Exile's next big update has been pushed back until January. So in a way, CDPR has managed to add yet another delay to their tally!

You know, it's sort of becoming hilarious at this point. The moment you think Cyberpunk 2077 is just around the corner and you'll finally be able to play it, CDPR swoops in and announces a brand new delay. Unfortunately, today's big reveal is no different.

Instead of launching this November as previously planned, Cyberpunk 2077 has now been pushed back by 21 days, until December 10th. The reason is that the team requires a bit more time to ensure Cyberpunk 2077 works correctly on all nine platforms, which I can't imagine is an easy task.

"Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly," explains the brief developer update. "We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do."

"We feel we have an amazing game on our hands and are wiling to make every decision, even the hardest ones, if it ultimately leads to you getting a video game you'll fall in love with."

I won't pretend the endless cycle of delays isn't downright annoying by this point, but it's definitely still better than the alternative. After all, whether Cyberpunk 2077 releases today or in two months, we'll still have to wait until they fully finish it before it becomes the game we all want it to be. And after already waiting for quite a few years, I suppose 27 more days is not going to be all that bad. Well, as long as 2020 doesn't continue ramping up its madness anyway.
