After multiple delays, Cyberpunk 2077’s release is just around the corner. CD Projekt RED has begun delivering physical copies to stores ahead of the December 10th release – leading to multiple leaks online. 

The most anticipated game of the year, Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on December 10. With the game’s history of numerous delays, there was some skepticism about meeting its new deadline, especially after leaks hinting at a fourth delay.

CD Projekt RED quickly shut down these rumors and reassured gamers that Cyberpunk will be published in December.

Developed by the same studio which brought us The Witchers games, Cyberpunk 2077 was originally to be released in April 2020 but saw three delays as CD Projekt aims to deliver the quality game fans are expecting.

But there is some good news on the horizon. CD Projekt RED has started delivering physical copies to various retailers around the world, confirming once and for all that the game will be released with no further delays.

The bad news is that due to the game’s copies arriving in warehouses, they are being acquired by people that have wasted no time in leaking gameplay footage online.

Several pictures of the game’s case have been released, showing the design and blurb at the back.

The most substantial leak came from two guys who after getting their hands on a copy, started streaming the first section of the game on YouTube.

While CD Projekt RED was lighting fast in taking down the video from the Google-owned platform, the damage was done and 20 minutes of gameplay was leaked.

While no major spoilers were reportedly shown, the leakers were able to show the character creation tool and spent several minutes browsing the menus and talking to NPCs.

This is not the first time Cyberpunk 2077 is the target of a leak, the list of Achievements and Trophies for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 was leaked weeks before the game’s release.

Only a few days ago, an anonymous user on a message board reportedly released the encrypted files of an early build of the game.

Twitch veteran and ex-CS:GO pro Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has been discussing Cyberpunk 2077, explaining what he’s most looking forward to about CD Projekt Red’s upcoming title. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated titles of all time. From the studio that brought us the acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, there is no reason to suggest that it won’t be one of the best games of the year.

However, despite the anticipation and development team behind it, the game has been delayed multiple times, now set for a December 10 release.

Barring any further delays, fans will be able to jump into Night City just before Christmas. CD Projekt have been keen to emphasize there will be no further delays, but with the ongoing global health crisis we wouldn’t rule anything out just yet.

Cyberpunk 2077 is set for a December 2020 release, unless CD Projekt feel the need to push it back further.

During a November 27 live stream, the ex-Cloud9 CS:GO pro turned his thoughts to Cyberpunk 2077, revealing what he is most excited for regarding the upcoming futuristic RPG.

“One to ten, how excited are you for Cyberpunk?” shroud said, as fans questioned the streamer for his thoughts on the upcoming title. “I’m not like ten out of ten excitement but I’m definitely excited, you know. I am excited to see what their definition of next-gen is, that’s what I’m excited for.”

With the Xbox Series X and PS5 now live across the world, many fans are excited to get their hands on next-gen games from world-leading developers, to match their industry-leading consoles.

Shroud finished: “Like yeah the game’s gonna be great – cool. But I really wanna know are they [CD Projekt] actually gonna revolutionize and truly next-gen. We’ll see – that’s what I wanna know.”

It seems that shroud, like many of us, is simply excited to see how far world-leading dev teams can take gaming on a whole new level of console. From December 10 onwards, we should find out.
