    *faceplants desk* Ok, I understand they want the game to be amazing, but this is just getting ridiculous at this point.

    Investors wouldnt want you to miss the holiday season. :)
    This is actually a sign of non confidence. They worked so hard at manufacturing the image of being the next 'Rockstar', that if that is axed due to too many technical issues on some game versions, they'd loose all of that.

    So the message at this point is, that they have an issue - that they absolutely think they have to address before going public.

    Management effed up, and this is damage control. Or their ambitions were too high, and this is damage control. ;)

    How big the damage actually is, we cant say at this point - again they pokered very high this time ('the next Rockstar'), so its expected that they release something stellar. :)

    Or put simply, some of the mock reviews marketing payed for probably came back 8/10 and cited technical/gameplay issues.

    You guys acting like this is their first time, remember when they delayed the witcher 3 twice ?

    It's a really bad move considering how close to the release date and peoples taking off work days to play it but it happens and should be a really good advice to peoples to never preorder stuff and just wait for it to be released

    As someone who doesn't care about the game and has searched nothing about it, what was the original intended release date before all these delays?

    I understand that it could be an effect of the pandemic, they might have had scheduling issues. I don't really care.
    Maybe they should have made CP2077 a PC exclusive for a while, while they port it into consoles or whatever they want.

    A part of me thinks that if devs did this, PC ports might not have the problems they do, and it'd allow the devs to get the heavier lifting of supporting different HW configurations first and to also do things that can only be done on PC hardware...kind of like how it used to be with games like the OG Deus Ex. That game's PS2 port was considered inferior in ways that I don't know have been seen ever since that generation of gaming.

    Still, all console ports usually boil down to it scaling everything back to run on their proprietary CPU's, GPUs, RAM configuration, etc..

    I'm just curious as to what those 9 platforms are.
    I can only think of 6, which they did confirm:

    -Ps4
    -Ps5
    -Xbox One
    -Xbox Series
    -Windows
    -Stadia

    Just so you know guys it's not really consoles fault. I have a friend who's a play tester for CP2077 on both pc and consoles and he told me month ago it's not possible for them to release the game in November (kept saying it last week). There is just too many game breaking bugs. Some of them make the game totally unplayable. Some of playtesters even cancelled their preorders a month ago, even tho they are big fans, because the game is in a such a bad state right now.

    I swear, it’s gonna be a duke nukem forever scenario where the development is more interesting than the game

    I think that the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X count as separate consoles to CDPR. Also GeForce Now.

    Hm... I don't see why they would separate them though, to the point of calling them different platforms.

    And then a mandatory day one patch that fixes a critical bug.

    I have dissed this game but to be fair it does not look crap in the same way that Duke Nukem Forever was crap.
    Duke Nukem Forever was literal crap. Me not being that interested in this game is down to personal taste.
