For those stuck on the terminology, “going gold” basically means that a complete, shippable version of a game is ready for production. We can feel the fuzz of neon lights and smell the fumes of Night City already!
Originally, Cyberpunk 2077 was planned for an April 2020 launch before being pushed back to September and now November. For those keeping track, the game was formerly announced way back in 2012 before the first cinematic teaser was shown in January 2013.
In case you missed it there’s also a new TV spot for Cyberpunk 2077 which aired during the recent NBA finals, starring Keanu Reeves who makes an appearance in-game as the character Johnny Silverhand. Here’s the live action trailer in full:
Here’s a little more information about the game’s release date and how Cyberpunk 2077 is making its next-gen transition:
Cyberpunk 2077 is out for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 19th November. It will be playable on Xbox Series X | S at that point – the consoles coming out on 10th November – and on PlayStation 5 on November 11th/19th, but next-gen enhancements will not be there on day one. The game could take some advantages next-gen beyond simple backward compatibility, but for ray tracing and other more integral enhancements, we’ll have to wait.
In the run up to launch, CD Projekt Red have been hosting Night City Wire livestreams, revealing new gameplay footage and features. One of these gave us an in-depth look at the arsenal of weapons available to players as well as the various Lifepaths you can pursue which will influence your origin and starting area in Cyberpunk 2077. For those who want even more, there’s an Edgerunners anime series due in 2022.
