However, everyone was pretty worried about the fact that with this whole Coronavirus pandemic and most of the workforce being sent home to go about their day that this revised date of September 17th would be affected. CD Projekt Red are doing everything they can do to reassure people that this won’t actually be happening though by releasing the following statement:

I mean it’s nice of them to say that but I’m not buying it. Delays to video games are notorious and the fact that everyone is working from home clearly means that most people are going to spend their time masturbating and not doing the full eight hours of work that they would supposedly be doing if they were going in.
Obviously it’ll be out in time for Christmas so I’m calling it now that it’ll probably be delayed until mid November or something. You heard it here first.
