Cyberpunk 2077 has once again been delayed, this time by 21 days to December 10th, 2020.
CD Projekt Red, the game’s developer, made the announcement in a recent tweet, stating that the delay relates to the challenges of releasing a title of this scale across nine video game platforms, including the next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to the Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, PlayStation 5, PC and Stadia.
“We’re aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do,” writes CD Projekt Red co-founders Adam Badowski and Marcin Iwinski in the tweeted statement.

What’s unusual about this situation is Cyberpunk 2077 went “gold” a few weeks ago, indicating that it had reached the end of its development cycle. In the statement, Badowski and Iwinski say this often isn’t the end of modern video game development.
“On the contrary, this is the time where many improvements are being made which will then be distributed via a Day 0 patch. This is the time period we undercalculated,” said Badowski and Iwinski.
It’s likely that after going gold, CD Projekt Red ran into more development issues than it initially expected regarding Cyberpunk’s day one patch.
Cyberpunk 2077 was originally set to release on April 16th before being moved to September 17th and then November 19th. The game will now release on December 10th following this latest delay.
It’s worth noting that December 10th is the same day of The Game Awards, Canadian producer Geoff Keighley’s annual video game show honouring the industry while revealing new trailers for upcoming games. By releasing on that date, Cyberpunk 2077 is missing the deadline to eligible to win any awards at this year’s show, so it will instead get the chance to be recognized in 2021.
CD Projekt Red is best known for developing The Witcher series, including 2015’s critically acclaimed open-world RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Cyberpunk 2077 is the next massive RPG from the Polish developer.

The LG CX packs in a beautiful OLED panel, with deep black, excellent brightness control, and a contrast ratio to die for. There’s a little bit more punch to the color on some other OLEDs too, due to LG’s distinct processing – and the webOS smart TV platform means it’ll be more a pleasure than a chore to navigate the TV’s many apps and services.
It supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, which are quickly becoming the industry standards for HDR picture content and high-resolution audio – ideal for viewing compatible content from Netflix, Apple TV, and Disney Plus.
It also has the latest in HDMI tech, with four HDMI 2.1 inputs. This basically means it can display content at up to 4K 120hz, with a variable refresh rate, which is exactly what the PS5 and Xbox Series X can do, as well as the latest graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD.
If you’re after something cheaper, though, there’s a step-down model called the LG BX that might be worth checking out.

New MacBook Pro Facing Another Awkward Problem – Forbes
The new Apple Silicon Macs are taking a lead in benchmarks and performance thanks to the new ARM-based M1 processor, but Apple’s next-generation of hardware is not bullet-proof, as some owners are finding out. Following on from reports of the new Macs ‘bricking’ themselves when attempting to restart back to a clean install, issues around bluetooth are being reported.
Picked up by the respective Reddit communities, some users who have purchased the new hardware (the updated MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or Mac Mini machines) are experiencing ongoing bluetooth connectivity issues:
“However any time I reboot the machine, I can’t log in because the keyboard and mouse are not connected. Using the wired keyboard lets me log in, and then the bluetooth keyboard and mouse start working again.” (Link)
“Losing connection to Apple Magic Trackpad 2 more than 10 times per hour. Also problems with the Magic Keyboard… that is not funny. I changed to an old Apple keyboard an mouse via USB.” (Link)
“My M1 Mini and MacBook Air won’t connect my Logitech M720 Triathalon mouse via bluetooth. It shows up, and I click connect, and it keeps flashing between connected and not connected until it finally just goes back to giving me the “connect” button. It never actually connects.” (Link).
“Can confirm that I’m also getting quite a bit of weirdness in the bluetooth connection, mostly with my Magic Mouse. The keyboard seems relatively okay (magic keyboard?). (Link).
This would not be the first update to a Mac that has caused issues with bluetooth. Previous updates to macOS have triggered issues (1, 2, 3, 4). No doubt Apple will, as always, be keeping a close eye on crash reports and user feedback. With the first update to Big Sur currently in public beta, the expectation is that the bluetooth issue will be addressed in the bump up to macOS 11.1.
Edmonton COVID-19 victim, 40, documents final days on Instagram – CTV News Edmonton
A 40-year-old Edmonton man who recently died from COVID-19 documented his deteriorating health on social media.
Ricky Lam, nicknamed ‘The Fan Guy’ in the city’s nightclub scene, wrote about trouble breathing, harsh coughing and extreme fatigue in a series of Instagram posts over the past week.
“At the emergency because my breathing has suddenly gotten worse. Had a lot of symptoms till now but don’t have my test results yet,” Lam posted on Nov. 20.
A day later, he wrote about suddenly having increased lung capacity. In the following post on the same day, he wrote that he’d “spoken too soon” and that he was being sent home.
The same day, Nov. 21, he posted he had indeed tested positive for COVID-19.
According to his three final posts, his condition only worsened from there.
“That was a huge shocker to see that,” said Lam’s cousin, Lisa Friesenhan.
“I started reaching out to find out what happened and more importantly want to know… ‘Is he OK?’”
But he wasn’t. Lam died in his home on Nov. 24, the day after his final post.
“I think that’s what people need to know and need to hear: that a healthy 40-year-old guy full of energy, full of life, can be floored within a few days,” said Lillian Lopez, one of several of Lam’s family members who spoke to CTV News.
“(This) shows shows it can hit hard and it can hit anybody,” said Lopez.
‘LIFE OF THE PARTY’
Ricky Lam’s outgoing nature and love of singing didn’t really jive with a pandemic lifestyle, but loved ones said he tried to make the best of it.
“During the start of the pandemic, each day he would sing a song,” said Petterson Lam, who chose Ricky as his best man for his wedding.
“He did sing at my wedding, as well,” the cousin said, calling Lam “natural performer.”
Family members say he earned the nickname ‘The Fan Guy’ for bringing a literal fan onto dance floors at bars and nightclubs, a prop they said endeared him to fellow club-goers.
“Going through condolences on Facebook and seeing how much Ricky had touched so many lives, it means a lot,” said Lam.
Friesenhan said Lam was also someone who liked to make people feel included.
“He was just open. Open about who he was and how he was feeling. I think that’s partly why he was so open about what was going on on his social media platform,” she said.
“I wonder if he wanted to make sure if other people would also feel comfortable sharing.”
Adding to their grief, Ricky Lam’s family is uncertain what to do about funeral arrangements.
Restrictions, introduced the same day Lam died, cap funeral attendances at 10 people.
“We know so many people would like to celebrate Ricky’s life, we’re just not sure how that’s going to happen right now,” said Friesenhan.
Cousins said Lam’s older brother lives in British Columbia and that the family has already suffered devastating loss in 2020.
“Right now, it’s so difficult for (Ricky’s dad) what to do or how to best handle it,” said Friesenhan, “(He) had to bury his wife earlier this year and now he’s lost his youngest son, so it’s hard.”
