CD Projekt RED reaffirms December 10 launch for ‘Cyberpunk 2077’
CD Projekt RED has reaffirmed its investors that Cyberpunk 2077 will release in two weeks on December 10 after a slew of delays.
During a recent investor call and presentation, the studio said that the game will not receive any additional delays, and has announced its plans for heavier global marketing campaigns in late November and December with advertisements in 55 countries.
During the call, which has been transcribed by Seeking Alpha, the studio also shed more light on the game’s post launch content. Regarding the game’s season pass announcement, CD Projekt RED President and co-CEO Adam Kiciński said: “The initial plan was to do it before release, but after the recent delay, we decided to wait for the release to provide gamers with the game and then start talking about future projects. So, after release.”
The studio had previously announced that the game would receive “no less DLC than The Witcher 3 had”, which received 16 free add-ons and two fully fledged purchasable expansions. When asked if the studio still expects the same timeframe for the launch, Kiciński said: “Regarding multiplayer, we haven’t announced any date so far”.
However, he added that multiplayer discussions within the team will begin “in Q1 next year, and that will be after releasing Cyberpunk and that will be the right moment to discuss deeper or all key aspects around future releases”.
Later on in the call, Kiciński reiterated that the Cyberpunk multiplayer mode will not be a Cyberpunk 2077 add-on but its own “triple-A” release. “It’s a separate dedicated production, a big production,” he said. “And we plan — we think about it as a standalone product. Obviously, it’s not entirely standalone as it comes from the universe of Cyberpunk and is very much related to the concept of single-player Cyberpunk”.
In other Cyberpunk 2077 news, QA Lead Łukasz Babiel has tweeted that he has racked up 175 hours in his current playthrough of the game, and that he has not completed it yet. However, it is worth nothing that Babiel was taking his time to explore everything.

‘Call Of Duty: Warzone’ Season 6 has been extended till December 7
Season 6 of Call Of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare has been extended by two weeks.
Players were alerted to the extension through the in-game countdown timer, which is now timed to reset on December 7, two weeks after Season 6 was originally scheduled to conclude on November 23.
So Infinity Ward updated the Season 6 battle pass to be extended until December 7th at 11pm PST. 2 days before Season 1 for Cold War goes live.
Seems there won’t be a “Season 7” but, per @fx_reed, we know more content is on the way. pic.twitter.com/x5hvz8e1qt

Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War is scheduled to kick off on December 10, and will be integrated into Warzone and Modern Warfare, as initially announced in late October.
However, it is currently unclear if Warzone will receive a Season 7 or new content entirely, with Infinity Ward’s lead multiplayer VFX artist Reed Shingledecker sharing on Twitter that there is “more content” on the way. “I just don’t know the official name of it. Hope some info gets released soon so people know what’s going on”, he tweeted.

Through the integration of Black Ops Cold War into Warzone and Modern Warfare, “the path to gaining XP and levelling up will be shared” across all three titles, Activision announced earlier this month. “This progression system is both familiar and innovative, allowing you to level up in all three titles no matter which game you play.”
The same blogpost also confirmed that custom load outs from Warzone and Modern Warfare will remain intact: “Note that your Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War weaponry will be shared with Warzone. We don’t currently have plans to remove any weapons from Warzone.”
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Warzone and Modern Warfare are currently available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
