Cyberpunk 2077 was originally due to be released on September 17 but was recently delayed until November 19 after the company stated they needed more time to “go through everything, balance game mechanics and fix a lot of bugs”.

A dedicated live-stream is set to take place next week titled Night City Wire and will provide further insight into the world of Cyberpunk 2077. Very little information has been provided on what fans can expect to see, but after the presentation has aired media previews of the game are scheduled to go live.

In related news, a since-deleted press release from the company revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 wouldn’t be launching on Google Stadia at the same time as other platforms. It noted that this version would debut “by the end of the year”.
