Cyberpunk 2077’s Delay Is Delaying Other Games As well


The delay of this highly anticipated game is having a knock-on effect and causing the delay of other games as well.

If you don’t already know, the news has recently broken that the game everyone is waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed… Again. This time to the 10th of December 2020. That’s a whole three weeks more for us to wait.

It seems that this decision to delay the game has had a ripple effect on other games release dates too.

One of these is Path of Exile’s 3.13 end-game expansion that was planned for release on the 11th of December but due to the Cyberpunk 2077 delay its release has now been pushed back to “somewhere in January 2021”.

Grinding Gear Games CEO Chris Wilson wrote in a post that the reason for the delay is that :

“We do not want to put our players in a position of having to choose between these two games, so we have decided to step out of the way and delay the release of Path of Exile 3.13 until January,” We still expect to finish 3.13 by early/mid-December,” Wilson continued. “The scope of this expansion will remain unchanged. During the month of delay before release, we will start work on the 3.13 expansion.”

This move seems kind of unfair to those fans of Path Of Exile who have been chomping at the bit waiting for the release of this new expansion.

It’s not all bad news for Path Of Exile fans though as Chris Wilson also wrote that Path of Exile players will still get something in December.

“So that you still have some interesting Path of Exile stuff to play over the Christmas/New Year break, we’re planning to run at least one multi-week event (for example, Flashback),” wrote Wilson.

Will this decision trigger other developers to take similar action? Only time will tell as it seems a lot is riding on the release of the much-awaited First Person Shooter that is Cyberpunk 2077.
