Developer CD PROJEKT RED announced on Twitter that its upcoming sci-fi RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, has been delayed until September 17 of this year. The original release date was April 16, but it turns out that date doesn't give the developers the time they need in order to launch the game in the state that they want to.

In the announcement, developers Marcin Iwinski and Aadam Badowski had this to say about the reasoning behind the delay:
We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there's still work to be done. Night City is massive — full of stories, content, and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing. We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.
While the news of the delay is disappointing for fans who were hoping to get their hands on the title as soon as possible, I think it's ultimately a good thing that the game is beind held back until the developers feel it's perfect.
Cyberpunk 2077 will (hopefully) be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC come September 17, 2020.
The Collector's Edition of Cyberpunk 2077 comes with not only the game and all the goodies the Standard Edition has, but also some cool physical media too.
