Well, that just made my 2020 an even bigger bummer than it already was. Aside from CP2077, this was the *only* video game title I was looking forward to this year :(. Can we at least get a release window for 2021?!?! Also, in spite of the delay, are there any plans to do some additional promotions of the game this year.....like at Gamescom?

Sad, but understandable.

What about the item codes from PDX Con? They are only valid until 25th of September

Sorry i don´t care how many downvotes i get but this is great news. Of course i want to play Bloodlines 2 badly but its clearly
for the best that Bloodlines 2 got more extra time. Also after completing Cyberpunk 2077 many players are hungry
for a similiar experience and Bloodlines 2 would be without any doubt a good choice.
I applaud this difficult decision.

I figured this was happening, but at least we know now. Sadly this was the only game I was looking to purchase this year, so 2020 will now both be the year of Corona and the first year since the 80’s where I’ve not purchased a single game. That’s not any bodies fault though. I’d rather this game get the attention it needs instead of being rushed out like Bloodlines 1. Just try and give us info on a more regular basis. It doesn’t need to be big updates, but even small things helps to keep the hype and the community going.

Well that is the question, isnt it? Does this game get attention it needs? :-/
So far we are in the dark, as usualy, about how this game looks like ... i mean what progress is there ... yes we have seen a few screenshot, and few seconds gameplay in dancing trailer ... but it would be really nice (and i cant help the feeling its needed more, and more) to see replay of that last year demo, in new coat, so we can finaly see how it looks like so far. :-/

But how do you think it started? :D
It started by changing.developers. CP2077 has been in development for almost 8 years, & has had its release date pushed back twice. Yet I don't hear any Duke Nukem comparisons there.

When in 2021, and does this delay mean that you're adding 3rd person, or making easy to mod in.

There are tons of games to play and things to do in the meantime, so I rather wait and play the game when its great than get it sooner in a bad state.

Sad, but expected. And at least I'll have enough time to do a complete playthrough of Cyberpunk 2077.

Now I'm expecting a March or April 2021 release, which basically means one year delay from the originally intended date.

I was actually expecting this. Hardsuit labs is located in the USA after all, and Corona is hitting there especially hard, for reasons everybody knows.
Since the game was already delayed once (without a pandemic in mind) I was fully expecting the plan to release in 2020 to be gone.

So I'd rather have been surprised if it was actually released in 2020. Also I'm a bit glad, since the end of 2020 there are so many good games coming, that I'm a bit overwhlemed. CK3, Port Royale 4, Cyberrpunk, maybe Empire of Sin if that isn't delayed as well, Evil Genius 2, Distant Kingdoms and more. I don't have the time to play all of them :D

By this logic, over half of games ever released are another Duke Nukem Forever. Because it's rare for the games to reach the planned release date. And most of those that seemingly do have been internally delayed before the public is even given the first release date.

Getting the game sooner would be nice but having it pushed out before it was in a good state is always a bad thing. Complication from covid impacting some studios in understandable along with the rest of the challenges of game dev.

I would much rather have that "oh, wow!" moment when I get the game and if that means a little more development time I'm good with that.

Thanks dev team for your hard work and making the smart call. Stay safe and mentally balanced as game design can be very taxing on the studio members.
