Cyberpunk 2077 delayed until September 2020

CD Projekt Red have announced that Cyberpunk 2077 will have a significant delay, until September 17 2020. The original release date was April 16, 2020.

Easily the most anticipated game of the year, CD Projekt’s first game away from the Witcher series hit critical mass after Keanu Reeves announced the initial release date of April 16 at E3.

Unfortunately, given the scope of the game, this date has been deemed unachievable by the Polish development company.

On January 16, CD Projekt Red posted on their Twitter account to say that the game is currently “complete and playable”, but there is still work to be done.

The news may not come as a surprise to longtime CD Projekt fans, who also delayed their critically acclaimed Witcher 3.

That game was actually delayed twice, initially set for holiday 2014, then February 2015, before eventually releasing in April 2015.

The studio has a reputation now for massive and lengthy games, packed with content, and hopefully, this delay will mean an improvement in all areas.

There is no doubt that players would rather a more finished and polished project, even if it means a delay. Fingers crossed that there will not be a second delay, like the Witcher 3.

Night City is a “massive” open world, and the developers need time to perfect it.

Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, and is set in Night City – a vast and sprawling metropolis. It seems this is a major reason for the delay, as they explain:

“Night City is massive – full of stories, content and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing.”

They conclude that they want Cyberpunk 2077 to be “our crowning achievement of this generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect.”

The news comes only a day after Square Enix announced they would be delaying another of the year’s most anticipated titles, the remake of Final Fantasy VII. This delay was only a month though, until April.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Krig 6 loadout

KRIG 6

The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
