Developer CD Projekt Red has quietly confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will not launch on Google Stadia on September 17, the date it’s due to hit PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Instead, the game will be available on Google’s streaming gaming service “by the end of the year,” the developer says.
The confirmation, which appeared at the bottom of a largely unrelated press release, doesn’t come as a complete surprise. When the Stadia version of Cyberpunk was first announced back in April 2019, CD Projekt Red merely said the game would hit Stadia “the same year” as other platforms. But that was before Cyberpunk 2077 got pushed back from a planned April release to its current September target date.
Meanwhile, the official Cyberpunk 2077 website lists Stadia alongside other platforms under a large banner and button reading “Coming September 17th, 2020. Pre-order Now.” Clicking through on that offer, though, doesn’t offer a Stadia preorder option, likely because Stadia doesn’t offer preorders on a platform level.
CD Projekt Red representatives weren’t immediately available to comment on the gap between Cyberpunk’s Stadia release and that on other platforms. But creating a Stadia version requires porting the game to Google’s Linux-based streaming servers. That’s a process that might not be a high priority during the final sprint of a major game’s development.
There’s no specification on exactly when the Stadia version of the game will be launching, but we can safely assume that it’ll be sometime between September 17th and December 31st, 2020. We’ll update if we get a set date or any clarification. Moreover, z2u.com provides Cheap Cyberpunk 2077 Accounts for players.
