After CD Projekt Red announced the unfortunate delay of Cyberpunk 2077, many fans were disappointed, some so much so that they started sending death threats to CDPR devs. Of course, out of the games that are releasing this year, Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated. The futuristic RPG is CDPR's latest AAA project since the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt five years ago.

The news came to light when CDPR Lead Game Designer Andrzej Zawadzki took to Twitter and asked disappointed fans to stop sending death threats. Zawadzki stated that the messages have been troublesome and asked fans to behave compassionately by saying, "We are people, just like you."

Folks, it's never OK to send anyone a death threat. Just don't do it.

Understandably, fans are looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077, and thanks to CDPR teasing the game via those Night City Wire episodes, fans have become even more hyped. A few weeks back, CDPR also announced that Cyberpunk 2077 had gone gold, which might have led fans to believe that the game's release date had been finalized. A day before CDPR announced the delay, a fan asked the developer if the release dates have been finalized and Cyberpunk 2077's Twitter account replied to the fan by saying, "Full Confirmation." This response was later updated with the Cyberpunk 2077 account responding "Well Fu** :(".

We are also learning that the reason for the game's delay is because of the current-gen versions of the game. According to CDPR, Cyberpunk 2077 plays well on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X. However, the game requires polishing for the current-gen consoles - PS4 and Xbox One.

With the game having delayed into December, Cyberpunk 2077 has also become ineligible for the Game of the Year award for 2020. The game will now be counted among those games that release in 2021, and therefore fall under the GOTY 2021 category.

Cyberpunk 2077 is has been delayed, and is now scheduled to release on December 10.
