How is Cyberpunk Crunch affecting the launch of Cyberpunk 2077?

Something is not going well in CD Projekt studio. This can be speculation or opinion. The game is already delayed multiple times, chances are history will repeat itself.

Recently one of our journalists covered news about a new phenomenon which can lead to a delay of Cyberpunk 2077. The entire history of this game is unstable. It has able to create hype among gamers, a lot of credits go to Keanu Reeves. But how much time more will it take to land on consoles and PC platform. As per the news Cyberpunk 2077 employees have to 6 days a week to complete the game development. Pushing the existing workforce to work more, above their work timings may sound harsh. This can be a crucial decision and can impact the overall launch of Cyberpunk 2077.

Is Cyberpunk 2077 delayed?

Cyberpunk 2077 official release date is November 19, 2020. The game is releasing on Xbox One, PC, and PS4. We had seen leaks before that showed us a buggy version of the game. Chiefly a test version the leaked gameplay videos showed an unfinished version of Cyberpunk 2077. Also, developers are now pitched to work for PS5 also. So in total, there are four primary platforms for game developers. It may be too early to push everything for PS5, the console is going to just land in the market at the end of this year. But for PS4 users things have to be perfect, the same goes for PC and Xbox One.

If Cyberpunk 2077 management is forcing their staff to work for longer hours, practically this can impact the overall quality of the game. We had seen this in EA games, where stringent working hours have lead to poor game quality, bugs, and instability. To an extent, it is not possible to compress everything into a single time-lime. Obviously, if Cyberpunk 2077 got delayed once again, a lot of juice will go to Assassins Creed Valhalla.

Ubisoft has its repo about the face graphics or not-so-cool animation in their Assassins’ Creed IP. Recently launched story trailer speaks something about unfinished animation, it looks developers are unable to achieve a quality milestone in terms of character animations. Does it means Ubisoft is also forcing their staff to work harder to release the final copy on time.

Cyberpunk 2077 was originally planned to release in April this year, but later this the date was shifted to September. The studio shares a reason the game needs more polishing and for the third time, the date was moved to November 19, 2020. The kind of vibe coming out the update form studio about stringent working hours looks Cyberpunk 2077 is still under processing.

[UPDATE] OCT, 5 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 official twitter account shared post recently where it is official now the game has gone gold. Gone Gold is an slang for an scenario where final copy of the game is out. It has been sent for replication, packaging and shipment. The tweet indicate the game is right on schedule this time.
