We’ve had an issue this generation with game announcements, Cyberpunk 2077 being no exception. They get announced too early with little to show after the reveal and in the case of Cyberpunk 2077 my hype is gone.
Starting to kill mine now too .
I agree. The root issue is CDPR keeps setting the expectation to play the game, to only wait till the last minute to keep pushing the game back. The delays aren't the problem, its the expectation and anticipation, to only be told "oh you have to wait again" instead of just saying TBD and leave it there.
I was gona play the game on ps5 anyway. So delays actually set well with my timing to enjoy the game.
@Sunny, Same here, considering the next-gen launch window games frenzy(Demons, Astrobot, Godfall, etc) and the fact that we know CP 2077 will not be PS5/XSeX enhanced at launch I don't mind it getting delayed for a few more weeks down the line, in fact, I'm glad it did. Hopefully, they'll have that next-gen patch ready by then so we can enjoy CP over the holidays. PS: Now that CP has bowed out from the 2020 VGAs which game do you guys think will snatch GotY? IMHO, Ghost of Tsushima is the undisputed winner.
Yeah I really don’t know why they just don’t push it back to February, March 2020 and have the ps5, Xbsx Next gen versions. The game is clearly not finished delaying a game a couple weeks before launch I don’t think 20 days is going to be enough..
Entitled and impatient.
...and you get downvoted by entitled little pussies 😂
It's quite laughable when people bitch about another 21 days. They should learn about video game development so they don't think their limited view of the world is the consensus. In the same breath they are also the same morons that bitch about day 1 patches when the game is released. People are extremely dumb as hell now a days.
IKR?It´s just over a little two more weeks...These kids have no patience at all. like there´s not bigguer problems on the world ?? Global pandemics,people dying all around the world,losing jobs,... Grow up people .it´s just a game for your fancy toy.
Well that's dumb. The hype has likely contributed to its delays, too.
Well think about it how much hype and positive reactions the game has going for it, they don't want to impact that be releasing it alongside the biggest consoles of the year and in PS5s case it even overlapped with it's launch day in some major markets I can assume they wouldn't want sharing the spotlight so they delayed it by a few weeks no big deal ;)
Don't buy it then. Meanwhile mine is pre ordered off of gog store front
I'm still hyped for Cyberpunk, but I'm one of the people who will be waiting until there is a fully optimized version for either ps5 or series x before I play it, so I was willing to be patient for a very long time now.
Same! I just really hope it arrives early next year, although I kinda expect it to arrive a bit later. It would be a bit funny if it landed on april 14th (wasn't that the original planned release date to begin with?...although in 2020 of course)
🤔 I'm actually gaining more hype for it since I never really cared much about it until recently
It’s coronavirus year, isn’t it understandable? The quality will be remembered long after the delay is forgotten.
Exactly I'll forget the delays the moment I have it downloaded on my pc
The author of this article is nothin’ but a rotten “Cyber Punk!”
Pun-roasting achievement unlocked!
Haven't watched anything or read anything about this game, and didn't play Witcher so I don't really know what to expect from this game. But I have only heard good things from people on here about CDPR and might pick this up if the community enjoys it. Looking for a good FPS, and this will likely take many hours which is exciting. Hoping the delays are worth it. Hope everyone enjoys it!
Too bad for the writer. I've been hyped since the start and it hasn't stopped. Must be a slow journo day.
Oh STFU Lol! Seriously if it's all for a better game in the end then so be it. If it's due to Covid-19 then I think we all should understand that. Stop whining.
Um not even the devs knew it was delayed.. So this delay won't affect the game at all.
There are plenty of games to play in the meantime...i highly doubt youve played everything out there or have no interested in absolutely anything for the time being.
Honestly did the opposite for me. These delays has convinced me to buy day one.
I don't get this. Since when was hype about waiting for the game? Are you suddenly no longer excited to play the game? I would still be hyped to play the game if it came out in 2077...granted my memory might be hampered by then.
Can’t wait, games going to be awesome
Lost most hype for this game as well. Not to say I won't get it day 1 but when a game like this has multiple delays I kind of just say whatever and loose interest.
Having the opposite effect on me, if CDPR is willing to delay it to make sure we get the best experience possible that only benefits us, You know what kills hype faster than a delay? a bugged filled mess of a game that's been rushed to market.
Would Laugh out loud if the gameplay suck. Too many people have put their hope desperately on that game. Heard that gamers sent threats to developers. Come on guys! Get a life!
With my PS5 and Series X coming I could use a little space in between to make sure Astrobot, Demon Souls, Godfall, Sackboy, the free Bugsnax, and I guess Gears 5 and Ori on game pass have some time in the sun.
Have we gotten so used to bug filled, incomplete, half assed games that we rather take this as is rather than wait if a developer decides they need more time? They can delay it another year for all I care. If it means putting out something amazing take the whole gen to make it. You people and your whining, Christ.
Just release unpolished/broken games; problem solved. This guy would be thrilled. It’s done when it’s done. Games are basically group artwork at this point. This guy’s like “paint faster or I won’t look at it”.
I have kept my hype low on it. After the first delay PSN gave me the option to cancel my preorder. It’s been on the back burner of my mind ever since. I know I will enjoy it, Witcher 3 is one of my favorites. But my hype is contained.
It killed mine. I will wait to buy preowned. I wouldn’t have had a problem with another delay, except for the fact the game has already gone gold. It’s not a good look on CDPR no matter what some people say. I fully expect another delay into 2021 now. They should just release it when the PS5 & Series X versions drop.
Thanks for letting us know. Bye.
Its a product, don't buy it then, stop being so entitled. You still gonna buy it anyway. Would you rather have 98% of the vision of the developers or 100%.
I'm sure OP will be playing it day 1 just like everyone else.. these fluff articles are a waste of space. Do better n4g.
Cry babies. What? You can't wait that bit longer? If you were at a restaurant, and it was taking forever, would you be less hungry when the food finally arrived? 😂
It's not bad compared to Twilight Princess delays. CD Pkt Red said 2020 and they aim to deliver.
Hype is overrated if anything it just sets you up for disappointment. If it's a good game it's a good game and you'll enjoy it.
They killed my hype when they decided to go only for first person view...
Adding Keanu hype is what killed it for me. Don't get me wrong. He seems a like a super swell dude, but he does nothing but add cliche to the franchise. It was a move made later in the game to appeal to a broader market with an actor a large audience. That's nice and all, but seriously, F that. Have confidence in your product to carry its own weight without piggybacking on someone else's clout.
It does feel like this recent delay was finally where the line was crossed. The previous ones everyone's been like "it's okay. Take your time!" and posting the extremely tired "A delayed game is eventually good" meme. But now I think people have had enough. I don't see anyone defending it. Pretty much everyone agrees people should be mad, especially since they tweeted literally 12 hours before the delay that there would absolutely be no more delays. Xbox auto-cancels pre-orders when games get delayed. This will be my third time pre-ordering this game.
Really happy for you.
I just hope that the delay doesn't mean the next gen update will take a lot longer.
had a super high hype... but every time the launch is approaching it is delayed... We bet that it will be delayed again and the launch will go until next year?
You'll be all right. The extra 21 days during a year like this is the least of it, I could see if it was 2021 or something. You'll forget you even said this come December.
Really not killing mine. Was waiting for the PS5 upgrade anyway, but keen to see peoples impressions when it's released. Delay is better than performance issues on release. They said in the past they were impressed with the polish of Red Dead Redemption 2, and wanted the game to be as final as that on release.
OMG Guys please, stop crying over a GAME!!! It's probably delayed so you won't cry over some bug or something that breaks the game, when you play it! WOW, and death threats? If it kills it for you, then don't buy the fucking game?! Get over it!
That's the difference between me and the poster of this article. I have not paid any attention to the delays, I just let the game flow naturally down the line for me that the over eagerness didnt drive me nuts. I had other games to play and while it would of been nice to have, I simply have not let this game over hype in anyway. I think its unhealthy to let a game do this to you, let them go about advertising the way they want to, that does not mean you have to let the game mess your brain up like it's a drug. There are far to many people who let the anticipation of game releases drive them mad or even go ahead and spoil the game for them entirely, gaming is sposed to be fun not a stress fest.
It will come out when its ready, i work in the game industry as a QA tester and issues can be found a week before release. I get annoyed at entitled gamers who moan because release dates get missed. Yes its a pain when anything gets delayed but there are good reasons behind it. so to all the moaners, just shut the fuck up, these games are not released to your schedule they are released to ours, dont like it then go back to Fortnite.
*Stomps feet* But I want it nooooooow! It isn't like it was delayed until holiday season 2021. What a dumb article.
It absolutely does. I have Nearly forgotten about this game.
Don’t worry, you’ll buy it when it comes out.
Oh lord... stop. Just stop whining like a little baby. You WILL play this game, so just go away with your entitlement complex. Sometimes life is hard. Fortunately, a game being delayed isn't life or death... it could always be MUCH, MUCH worse...
Anything that kills hype is probably a good thing. Hype is a kind of poison in the world of gaming, creating inflated expectations that no actual game can possibly satisfy. Lowering your expectations means that, when you start playing the game - and, don't kid yourself, you *will* play the game - you'll experience it as it is, not as you feverishly imagined it to be. You will be more open to surprise and delight at CDPR's trademark excellence in game design and attention to detail. In any case, a little bit of patience and forbearance is called for: everyone in the industry is working under really difficult conditions, this year, and the pandemic has been resurgent in Europe for the past few weeks.
Waiting for next gen to play this so no.
I was always going to wait until i got the new gen console to play it but the lies about the delays are disheartening. Remember when they originally announced this was coming out in february? They knew that was bull but theese companies cant help themselves.
Oh. No. Not your hype. Is it possible to put it on life support? Do we send a card or flowers for such a situation? I'm really saddened that someone's hype has died down for a game because the real-world issues prevent it from being released sooner rather than later. /s just in case someone needs it.
I was never hyped for it in the first place. Looks underwhelming imo
It's a pity that the premiere has been postponed again, but I still think it's worth waiting for this game. All in all, if this time they actually keep their word and the game comes out on December 10, the holiday season is the perfect time to delve into the world of Cyberpunk
I'm going to be waiting for the Series X patch version anyways. I want to be able to have a better experience with the game.
