Business are shuttered. Streets are quiet. Sirens blare back and forth. No, this isn’t some piece of post-apocalyptic fiction – increasingly, it’s every urban space under the escalating Covid-19 pandemic. With developers, publishers and retailers alike scrambling to get their staff working from home, Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt Red are keen to remind fans that they’ll still get their 21st-century dystopia come September 17th.

Sooner, even, if they look out the window.

CD Projekt Red’s tech dystopia FPS Cyberpunk 2077 is expected out later this year. Ye olde marketing machine seems to be getting its gears turning again and CDPR have today posted about one of the gangs that you’ll find in Night City. The Mox are a group that CDPR say “protect working girls and guys from violence and abuse,” specifically sex workers like their in-game inspiration Elizabeth Borden.

Seemingly to mark International Women’s Day yesterday, CD Projekt Red unveiled a new default look for Cyberpunk 2077‘s female protagonist option. The two Vs will be yours to pick from with reversible box art too, they also confirmed. This V has flipped her parting, pinked her hair up, gained some piercings, and lost some makeup – an easier look for rolling straight out of bed into cybernetic ultraviolence. While Cyberpunk 2077 will have character customisation options to change many aspects of V’s appearance, I know many folks like the play as the ‘canon’ version of RPG characters from trailers and the box so hey, here she is.

That scrappy Polish studio that developed a computer RPG based on the monster hunting novels by Andrzej Sapkowski is all grown up. CD Projekt, parent company of The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 developers, are now valued as the second largest gaming company in Europe, beat only by Ubisoft.

Cyberpunk 2077 may have been delayed, but when we finally get our hands on it in September we’ll be able to play through it at launch on GeForce Now.

GeForce Now is Nvidia’s cloud gaming service which will let you stream games you already own, rather than having to buy them on a new platform. If you pay for GeForce Now membership, it also means you’ll be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 using their fancy ray tracing from day one.

Update: And here it is in all its mildly heinous yellow glory! As you can probably see from the front of Nvidia’s new Cyberpunk-ified GPU (provided its intense yellow hasn’t blinded you), this is just a special edition of their regular RTX 2080 Ti graphics card rather than a whole new launch or RTX Super reveal. The good news, though, is that it won’t cost you a single penny. Instead, you’ll have to enter Nvidia’s Twitter competition if you want to be in with a chance of getting your hands on one, as there are only 77 of things monstrosities being made available ‘to the community’ (which is probably just as well, given how fugly it is). To be honest, Nvidia missed a trick with this – surely the RTX 2077 should have an absolute shoe-in?

Now that Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed from April to September, what are you to do? You’ve grown a lurid blue mohawk, your leather jacket is almost worn in, and your prescription mirrorshades are ready for collection at Specsavers – but for what? You might as well use this time to explore all games cyberpunky, from edgy and nihilistic griping about how the future sucks to wacky cyberjapes that make you wanna jump up and shout HACK THE PLANET. I have some recommendations.

Over the break we had a chance to do some serious scientific study of this business we call games, and it turns out that games are actually good. 2020 in particular has a healthy mix of big budget bonanzas and smaller indie plates to suit everyone’s discerning tastes. And, as you know, the RPS treehouse is the most discerning, so to make it easier for you we’ve got a big ol’ list of the games we’re most looking forwards to this year. It’s traditional.

Following last night’s announcement that Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed from April into September, CD Projekt gave a wee update on when we should expect its mysterious multiplayer aspect: probably not until 2022, at earliest. They’d never said when to expect the project (which is officially codenamed Cyberpunk Multiplayer) but we do now know when not to expect it. The Witcher devs also expanded on why it is they’ve chosen to delay their new open-world RPG’s launch, saying it really just has a lot to polish because it’s so complex.

Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed until September 17th. CD Projekt Red announced on Twitter today that, while technically playable from start to finish, Cyberpunk wouldn’t be ready for its planned release on April 16th. There’s a bit more work to be done polishing the streets of Night City, and the team needs a few more months to get it done.

Sorry, Keanu.
