The game developer shared the details regarding the second delay on its official Twitter handle. As part of the update, CD Projekt Red revealed that it has finished the in-game content. In addition, the company has also finished the gameplay element of Cyberpunk 2077. Both these segments include cutscenes, skills, quests, items, and more. However, the developer wants some additional time to start polishing it to elevate the quality. This delay will give them enough time to “properly go through everything” to balance game mechanics and fix bugs.

These previews will go live right after the company airs Night City Wire on June 25th, 2020. This will also help the company in making any last-minute course corrections and improvements before the final launch in November 2020. CD Projekt Red also noted that it is practicing the “Ready when it’s done” philosophy instead of rushing the release.
