CD Projekt RED has officially delayed the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt into 2022.
First up, Cyberpunk 2077 will launch for Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation consoles in Q1 2022, more than one year after the release of the PS4 and Xbox One editions of the sci-fi epic. This puts it out between January – March.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt meanwhile will arrive in Q2 2022, which means the game will arrive between April – June 2022.
Here’s the official statement CD Projekt RED from the company’s latest investors call:
The Management Board of the Company hereby announces that, based on recommendations supplied by persons supervising development, it has decided to allocate additional time to both projects. The Company currently intends to release the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 in the first quarter of 2022, and the next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in the second quarter of 2022.
