(Pocket-lint) - CD Projekt Red has announced yet another delay to Cyberpunk 2077.

Originally planned for 16 April, pushed back to 17 September, then switched to 19 November, the game will now not hit stores until 10 December 2020.

Announced on Twitter, the delay is due to testing nine different versions of the game in full, across multiple platforms.

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated titles of the year, especially given it's CD Projekt Red’s first major release since The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt won many of the biggest gaming awards in 2015 and spawned a new Netflix series.

At least the new 21 day delay means that next-generation versions can launch alongside current. Originally, it was planned for Xbox One and PS4 editions to arrive first (along with PC and Stadia), with Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions to follow. Now they can all be available at the same time.

"We feel we have an amazing game on our hands and are willing to make every decision, even the hardest ones, if it ultimately leads to you getting a video game you'll fall in love with," said CD Projekt Red's Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski.
