CD Projekt Red as today announced that the eagerly awaited release of Cyberpunk 2077 has been has been pushed from April to September 17.
The studio posted about the delay on it's Twitter account, stating "We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there's still work to be done. 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."
It's unfortunate to see one of the year's biggest titles delayed, but I'll take a delay over an unpolished game any day. The studio has soaring player expectations to live up to with the upcoming first-person RPG, so here's hoping this is the last delay we see for what will surely be a phenomenal last hurrah for the current-gen.
A new filing from the Taiwanese ratings board indicates that a BioShock collection could be on its way to the Nintendo Switch.
First spotted by Loot Pots, the Switch ratings filed are for BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition, as well as a collection comprised of all three titles.
There's been no official announcement by 2K Games, but given the publisher just opened a new studio and tasked it with developing the next in the franchise... a Switch port is a pretty safe bet.
The co-creator of Halo, Marcus Lehto has a new first-person shooter, titled Disintegration set to arrive some time this year. As is customary for multiplayer shooters, the game will receive a closed Beta towards the end of this month.

The latest trailer for Doom Eternal is packed full of guns, demons, and metal music – but also shows off some new gameplay mechanics.
While we've previously seen shiny new additions like the Doom Slayer's grappling ability and a wicked sword, it looks like we'll be able to rain down airstrikes and set up blast shields as well.
2016's Doom was a breath of fresh air in the franchise, bringing back the frenetic pace and over-the-top gore that left many anticipating its follow up.
Two of Square Enix's biggest upcoming games, Final Fantasy VII: Remake and Marvel's Avengers have been delayed.
Final Fantasy VII: Remake will now release on April 10, 2020 while Marvel's Avengers has been pushed to September 4. The two games were originally slated to release on March 3 and May 15 respectively.
"We know that so many of you are looking forward to the release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake and have been waiting patiently to experience what we have been working on," said producer Yoshinori Kitase.
Sony has confirmed it will not be attending the Electronic Entertainment Expo again this year.
Last year's lack of attendance was explained as the company wanting to explore "new ways to engage with fans," although many thought PlayStation would return to share details on the upcoming release of the PlayStation 5.
"After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020," a spokesperson told Games Industry.
While the Series X is set to release by the end of this year, Microsoft won't be showing its predecessor the door just yet.
In a new interview with MCV, Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty spoke about plans to make upcoming software releases both backwards and forwards compatible.
"As our content comes out over the next year, two years, all of our games, sort of like PC, will play up and down that family of devices," said Booty.
The latest Nintendo Direct has announced new content coming to Pokemon Sword and Shield in the form of an Expansion Pass.
In addition to offering new stories to the Sword and Shield games, the expansion pass will introduce more than 200 existing Pokemon that are yet to be seen in the Galar region.
The choice to offer an expansion pass bucks the trend of Pokemon games, which have traditionally released a third game set in the same region – forcing many players to start from scratch. All content releasing from the pass will be playable within existing game saves.
Following rumours and the 2019 release of the Nintendo Switch Lite, the Taiwanese publication DigiTimes has reported that Nintendo plans to commence production of an all-new Switch model in the first quarter of this year, with a "mid-2020" release.
The report states that Nintendo plans to implement an alloy body as opposed to the plastic body of the Switch and Switch Lite. The new model is also said to feature an upgraded CPU, providing the handheld with more power than that of the previous two consoles.
Nintendo is notorious for releasing multiple versions of their handheld consoles, and rumours of Switch Pro have been circulating for the better part of a year, so it's probably safe to assume this news is accurate.
“Death Stranding shows that, much like movies, games have the opportunity to evoke conflicting emotions in us. They should challenge our preconceptions and in that, Death Stranding is a success on every front.”
