What you need to know

  • Cyberpunk 2077 is the ambitious open world RPG from the makers of the Witcher 3, a legendary game.
  • It has been the victim of multiple delays over the last year, with the latest pushing it out to December 10.
  • CD Projekt RED is holding the fifth episode of its Night City Wire series on November 19, the game's last release date.
  • The stream will share more about the in-game character Johnny Silverhand, game music, and more.

One of the most anticipated games in recent memory has been Cyberpunk 2077, which seems impossibly ambitious and broad in scope. For some fans, this probably feels like the truth, as the game has suffered from a multitude of repeated delays, pushing the release date further and further out. The latest delay moved Cyberpunk 2077's release date from November 19 to December 10, 2020, taking Cyberpunk 2077 out of the running as a next-gen launch game.

Possibly to compensate for the delay, CD Projekt RED, the developers behind Cyberpunk 2077, is holding the fifth episode of its Night City Wire stream, which shares information about Night City and its inhabitants, on Thursday, November 19. Yes, that's the day the game was supposed to release on.

Night City Wire Episode 5 will talk about Johnny Silverhand, the in-game character played by the charismatic Keanu Reeves (and also has their own Porsche), as well as some of the game's music, and apparently "a lot more."

The latest episode of Night City Wire will air on Twitch on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 6 pm CET. Despite its delays, Cyberpunk 2077 continues to be one of the most anticipated games coming to Xbox, and the Xbox Series X|S.
