Previous Night City Wire streams have revealed things like the gangs of Night City, the vehicles, and the three life path choices, all of which are explained below.
- Street Kid – V will be from the Heywood district, and his/her childhood memories include: “robbing buildings, running away from badges, and the taste of blood from a split lip.” With this backstory, V will come from a place where everyone is constantly fighting for a “slice of the street.” Nomad – The Nomad backstory is a more peaceful upbringing for V, as the game’s main protagonist spends their formative years in a rural location, before ultimately deciding to move towards Night City because his/her family is “in pieces.” In the game, Nomads have a powerful hunger for freedom and are willing to do whatever it takes to find it. Corpo – V will begin his or her journey as a corporate employee, where they’re working under Saburo Arasaka, who is 158 years old and is described as being megalomaniacal and obsessed. The Corpo boss also says that he hates America, and says that his duty is to elevate Japan to its former glory. With this backstory, V is, or was, responsible for keeping Arasaka in power.
At the end of October, CD Projekt Red announced yet another delay, saying that Cyberpunk 2077’s release date has been pushed back to December 10. Shortly thereafter, the developers held an investor’s conference call, where the company’s CEO, Adam Kiciński, said that they’re confident, but not comfortable with the game’s new release date, leading many to think that the game will be delayed again.
On Tuesday, CD Projekt Red issued a statement to IGN in response to people thinking the game will be delayed until sometime next year, saying that they’re just taking time to update all of Cyberpunk 2077’s updates to reflect the December 10 release date.
“As a rule, we don’t comment on rumors or speculation,” a CDPR representative told IGN “But I will confirm we were just taking time to update all of our assets to reflect the new launch date of December 10th.”
Unless it’s delayed again, Cyberpunk 2077 will be available for current-gen consoles on December 10, while the next-gen version will launch sometime next year.
