The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the embattled Cyberpunk 2077 has now been delayed till “the first quarter of 2022.” Developer CD Projekt Red had earlier promised in September the free next-gen upgrades will be coming out in late 2021.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S will now be released in the second quarter of 2022. CD Projekt Red took to Twitter today to announce the latest development concerning the bug-riddled Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4 and Xbox One) much to the disappointment of many.
“We have an important update regarding next-generation updates of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for consoles and PC,” CD Projekt wrote in a statement shared on Twitter. “Based on recommendations supplied by teams supervising the development of both games, we decided to postpone their releases until 2022.
“Our current target for Cyberpunk 2077 is the first quarter of 2022, and second quarter of 2022 for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
“Apologies for the extended wait, but we want to make it right.”
Released in September 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, Sony notoriously removed the game from its PlayStation Store and later restored it more than six months later after numerous bug fixes and patches from the developer.
