Cyberpunk 2077 launching on Stadia Day One

Cyberpunk 2077 launching on Stadia Day One

The eagerly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Google's Stadia streaming service when it launches next month.

Developer and publisher CD Projekt confirmed the news in the latest Night City Wire livestream event, saying that its much-hyped sci-fi RPG will be released on Stadia on November 19th, at the same time as it comes to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Cyberpunk 2077 had previously been announced for Stadia, but it was set to come to the cloud streaming platform at some point in 2020.

CD Projekt's next title was initially set for an April 2020 launch, but at the start of the year, the developer bumped Cyberpunk 2077's release until September. Later, it was delayed again to November.

The game went gold last week, but the Polish studio apparently was mandating six-day workweeks in order to get the project finished. This flew in the face of CD Projekt's commitment to making Cyberpunk 2077 without "mandatory" crunch.
