DEVELOPERS working on Cyberpunk 2077 have received death threats after the game’s release date was postponed for another three weeks.
The futuristic sci-fi shooter that features the voice and likeness of Matrix star Keanu Reeves will hit shelves on December 10th.
Polish game maker CD Projekt Red announced the delay on Tuesday and sparked a fiery reaction from fans on social media.
The big budget blockbuster was announced in 2012 but has suffered several setbacks during a long and bumpy development.
“What if they delayed it until 2077?” Joked a fan on Twitter.
Following the recent delay, developers working on the game reportedly received death threats.
Lead designer Andrzej Zawadzki took to Twitter to express his frustration at the shameful reaction of a handful of fans.
“I understand that you are angry, disappointed, and want to share your thoughts on it,” he wrote.
“However, sending death threats to the developers is totally unacceptable and just plain wrong. We are people, just like you. ”
Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG set in a dystopian sci-fi world where humans are part of the machine.
You play as a V, which you can customize with new cyborg implants and augmentations as you play.
Keanu Reeves, 56, plays Johnny Silverhand, a “legendary rockerboy” who is a key figure in the game.
Cyberpunk was originally scheduled to be released in April 2020. This was postponed first to September 17th, then November 19th and finally December 10th.
CD Projekt Red blamed the final delay on the number of consoles and other platforms the game was developed for.
The role-playing game will be released on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia, as well as on the new consoles from Microsoft and Sony: PS5 and Xbox Series X.
In addition, production has slowed due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced employees to work from home for several months.
“The biggest challenge for us right now is to deliver the game on the current generation, the next generation and the PC at the same time. To do this, we have to prepare and test nine versions, ”the company said in a tweet.
“We have to make sure that everything works well and that every version works smoothly.
“We understand that it might seem unrealistic for someone to say that 21 days can make a difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do.”
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X – when will they be available and how much do they cost?
Microsoft has confirmed that the new Xbox Series X and its smaller, cheaper sibling, the Series S, will hit the market on November 10th.
The Disc-Free Series S is £ 249 / $ 299 while the Xbox Series X is £ 449 / $ 499.
How does that compare to the new Xbox’s biggest rival, the PlayStation 5?
Sony has announced that the PS5 release date will fall on November 12, but not everywhere.
This date only applies to the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.
You won’t be able to get it in the UK until November 19th.
The actual PS5 costs £ 449.99 / $ 499.99 while the digital edition costs £ 359 / $ 399.
