Cyberpunk 2077 has been submitted for age rating

CD Projekt's eagerly-awaited sci-fi RPG Cyberpunk 2077 has reached the age rating stage.

That's according to Reuters, who attended a briefing by the company, in which CEO Adam Kicinski said that the game has been submitted to the age ratings agencies.

“We sent the game to (age) rating agencies ... The game is complete enough to be played by people outside the company ... These ratings are ongoing. We should receive them in up to a month,” he said.

The exec also said that he isn't concerned about events like GDC and E3 being cancelled as it has other ways of reaching its users.

“If trade fairs will not take place, we will show things we planned to show during fair trades in a different way," he said.

"The internet works, so we can reach users, even if fair trades are not being physically held."

Cyberpunk 2077 was announced in bombastic fashion at the end of Microsoft's E3 2018 show. The title was initially set for an April 16th release date, but was pushed to September 17th after CD Projekt RED opted to spend a few extra months polishing and fixing bugs.

The company's previous release, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has shifted in excess of 40m units since its May 2015 release. The Polish firm is now worth in the region of $8bn following the launch of The Witcher show on Netflix.
