When CD Projekt RED announced that Cyberpunk 2077 would be delayed it managed to disappoint the entire gaming community as players had been waiting for the game for a long time, but recent leak points towards the delay being caused due to Xbox One not being powerful enough.
It is advised to take this news with a pinch of salt as this has not been confirmed by either CD Projekt RED or Microsoft themselves but a recent Polish leak points towards the Xbox One console being underpowered as the main reason for the delay.
Polish insider Borys Niespielak was the person who leaked this piece of information on a podcast and discord user Klawiaturodzierzca translated the information in English.
As it turns out according to the leaks CD Projekt RED were trying to solve this issue but couldn’t fix it before January 2020 and that’s the main reason behind the delay.
Witcher 3: Wild Hunt too was delayed due to Xbox One consoles not being powerful enough and was subsequently downgraded further at the time of the launch.
If true it just seems criminal that such a massive title has been delayed due to a console’s fault but let’s hope that the developers at CD Projekt RED manage to find a solution by September 2020 which now is the new release date.
