Cyberpunk 2077 And Ghosts Of Tsushima To Launch 2020, New Report Claims
2020 is shaping up to be one hell of a year for video games. We’d previously heard the Final Fantasy VII remake and The Last of Us Part 2 would launch next year, and we’re now hearing Cyberpunk 2077 and Ghosts of Tsushima are set to join the fray.
RIP my wallet.
Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, typically a reliable source for all video game rumours and release dates, recently reported that The Last of Us Part 2 has been pushed to 2020 with Death Stranding set to take the November 2018 slot that had been assumed to be for Naughty Dog’s sequel.
Following this, he’s now shared what he’s heard regarding the CD Projekt RED developed Cyberpunk 2077 and the PS4 exclusive Samurai adventure Ghosts of Tsushima.
According to three separate sources who spoke to Schreier, CD Projekt RED had been aiming for a 2019 release for its sci-fi RPG/FPS, but it seems there are plenty of people on the team who don’t believe that to be a realistic target at this point.
Obviously, the game has been in development for so long at this point that I think we’d all rather it release in 2020 and be a product that the studio are happy is actually finished. With that said, Schreier does acknowledge that we could see 2019 announced as a release date during E3, with a delay to 2020 later in the year.
Schreier later responded to a tweet that asked him when he thought other big releases like Ghosts of Tsushima and the rumoured FromSoftware/George RR Martin collab would arrive, saying he thinks 2020 is going to a be a “wild year.”
Ghosts of Tsushima releasing in 2020 is perhaps less surprising, given how little we’ve seen or heard from the game since its announcement in 2017.
So, 2020 will currently (potentially) see The Last of us Part 2, Ghosts of Tsushima, Great Rune, Cyberpunk 2077, the Final Fantasy VII remake, two AAA Ubisoft games, and whatever the hell else emerges from E3 that we didn’t see coming.
I’ll be spending the next several months working out how I’m going to put together the time and money to actually play and enjoy what should be an absolutely stellar run of games.
