Cyberpunk 2077 Crosses Another Milestone, "Looking Better And Better"
CD Projekt Red confirms the PS4, Xbox One, and PC game has been sent to ratings groups while the team focuses on polishing.
Polish developer CD Projekt Red's new game, Cyberpunk 2077, has reached another major milestone. Studio boss Adam Badowski announced on Twitter that the game has now been submitted to local ratings groups, including the ESRB in America and PEGI in Europe.
As the team waits to see what rating Cyberpunk 2077 receives (and perhaps contemplates what to work on next), it is working on polishing the "technical aspects" of the game. CD Projekt Red is also using the remaining development time on playtesting. "Game is looking better and better with each passing day!" Badowski said.
We just submitted @cyberpunkgame to age rating agencies around the world (PEGI, ESRB, etc.). While we wait for the game to get rated, we work on polishing technical aspects and playtesting it. Game is looking better and better with each passing day!— Adam Badowski (@AdamBadowski) March 10, 2020
Given what CD Projekt Red has said about Cyberpunk 2077 and shown off thus far, it would seem likely that the game will receive an M rating from the ESRB and PEGI 18 in Europe, and an R18 in Australia. This would be in line with the rating for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which was CD Projekt Red's previous big release.
Cyberpunk 2077 was originally scheduled to release in April for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but CD Projekt Red later delayed the game to September. More recently, CD Projekt Red staffers moved to working at home due to the coronavirus, but at this point the September release is still on schedule.
That's just a few months before the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are due to release this holiday. For its part, CD Projekt Red has confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will be part of Microsoft's Smart Delivery feature, so people who buy it on Xbox One can get the upgraded version for Xbox Series X at no extra cost.
