    Rumour has it it's the Stadia version that's kind of to blame here, which is funny as there's probably more people doing a 6 day crunch finalizing that version than will actually play it....

    I laughed anyway at the news! I should be pissed off as it's the no1 game I'm looking forward to, but that backlog of games, and it's only 3 weeks so...

    Ironically now I’m wondering wether to get the game as I happened to have booked that day off for unrelated reasons.

    Then even more of a "WHAT?" since Stadia will be shutdown probably before 2022.

    If a game gets 3 delays or more, I pirate it. There's no excuse to delay a game more than twice honestly.

    After thinking it through I've decided to cancel my pre-order. Given that it's almost inevitable that post launch bugs will be discovered and with all these constant delays not doing much to help with those worries, I think I'll hold off getting this game until I can afford a PS5 and have this be one of my first next gen titles to play.

    That's a wise move.

    I feel bad for people who lost games permanently after cloud gaming service shutdown like happened to OnLive.

    I'm actually okay with this as it'll give me more time to mess around with the PS5 in the meantime.

    Exactly, cloud gaming service feel like 3DO, CD-i, TurboGrafx-16 and Atari Jaguar - they didn't last longer as SNES and Sega Genesis.

    What on earth do you mean "little to no transparency"? It's not like they waited until release day to say "Sorry, you're not playing it til December!" Has Projekt Red really become deserving of the woeful glares of desperate gamers? I guess so...

    So do I, but they should learn that Google is an expert of killing projects.
    No way in hell they will keep this up if it doesn't start turning a profit. Or they should atleast turn it in to a Xbox Games kind of service and it might work.

    I'm not sure if some of the guys here actually read the whole post where part of the reason they are delaying the game is to optimize it for multiple versions, or just post a reply after seeing this thread's title. If they they forgo the idea of simultaneous launch on 9 versions of the game and have a separate release date for the next-gen, then they could have release on time.

    I don't think it's next-gen that's taking extra time, the game was essentially next gen from the get-go. Like others have pointed out, it's more likely that streaming services are to blame for this delay.

    I mean.. If that's actually 100% fact? Then that's just mental. Game streaming doesn't account for enough of the playerbase to warrant a delay in releasing the title. If anything, they should have just delayed the release to streaming services.

    Ouya was never a good idea, but at least people can still use that hardware.
    Not that its worth using that hardware. Not that its not.

    Was CDPR always this incompetent? Every time I seem to hear news about this game, it always x feature removed, crunching their employees to death, and delays. Is it always like this with them and their games?

    That game was nothing less than crap when it finally released.
