The highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed again, pushing it weeks after the launch of the next-generation consoles.
The game is now set to go on sale on 10 December.
A letter from the developers said there would be “many emotions and questions” about another delay, and asked fans to “please accept our humble apologies”.
Cyberpunk 2077 is a new franchise from CD Projekt Red, maker of the much-loved ‘The Witcher’ games, which has spawned a Netflix series starring Henry Cavill.
It was originally announced in June last year, with the internet’s boyfriend Keanu Reeves taking to the stage to huge fanfare.
It was intended to go on sale in April this year but has now been delayed three times.
Most recently, it was scheduled for release on 19 November – the same day as the UK launch of the PlayStation 5 and nine days after the Xbox Series X goes on sale. Staff had reportedly been told to work six-day weeks, in order to finish it for the release of the Next-Gen consoles.
But that led to further problems, causing another delay, CD Projekt Red said in a tweet:

Game developers have come under a lot of fire recently, for over-working employees. Which CD Projeckt Red had promised not to do.
