6 Reasons to Pre-Order Cyberpunk 2077 & 4 Reasons to Wait
The Cyberpunk 2077 release date is almost here. While some of you might want to buy a copy right now, others are better off waiting.
It took awhile, Cyberpunk 2077 was originally confirmed all the way back in 2012, but we’re finally getting close to the game’s release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Google Stadia, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.
If you’re just catching wind of it, the game is a sequel to Mike Pondsmith’s pen and paper RPG, Cyberpunk 2020. Cyberpunk 2020 was released all the way back in 1988.
CD Projekt Red took its time, but fans of Cyberpunk and The Witcher series are hoping the developer can recreate the magic it delivered back in 2015 with The Witcher 3.
The developer initially confirmed the release date for April 16th, but decided to push it to September 17th to add some additional polish.
Unfortunately, the game got delayed again and the developer said the release date would land November 19th. In a bit of a surprise, the company pushed the release back even further.
The Cyberpunk 2077 release date is now confirmed for December 10th and this will serve as the game’s official release date. The delays are over.
Get the Best Gaming Chair You Can Buy
Retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, and GameStop are taking pre-orders for the two versions of the game. There is the standard $60 version and there’s also an expensive Collector’s Edition that comes with a bunch of extras.
With the release as close as it is, a lot of people, particularly those fond of CD Projekt Red’s games, might be thinking about putting in an order.

This was really helpful, since I was unsure if I was gonna pre-order it or not. Since my recently new computer is between 5-18 months old and has had a few performance issues, I think I’m gonna wait for the specs. Thanks!
