With Cyberpunk 2077 (again) nearing its release date, developer CD Projekt Red has (again) announced a new such date: December 10, 2020.
But will this date hold? What does it mean to release a AAA game in mid-December? Will employees have to crunch? And just why, oh why, is no one keeping their community managers in the loop?
A rushed game is forever bad, but a delayed game might possibly not be...in Virtual Legality.
