Cyberpunk 2077 is out next week. No, really. This time it’ll actually happen, not like those fake times that got everyone fired up. CD Projekt Red has stuck to its latest release date of December 10, so expect the game to be playable around that day. But at what time can you play Cyberpunk 2077? Good question, and today we have the answer. CD Projekt dropped a scary, yellow image on its Twitter account, showing a world map with global release times.
There’s some happy news for those in the US. You won’t have to wait until midnight on December 10 to finally dive in. According to the Cyberpunk 2077 release times map, the game is playable starting at 4 PM PT or 7 PM ET. Across the pond, the folks in the UK will be able to play it starting midnight on December 10. Times increase by an hour as we go eastward.
To note: the above are the release times for both PC and Stadia. Users on the latter platform won’t have to worry about downloads. For PC users, pre-loads will begin on December 7 for Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store. Indeed, the world will still be dead to me starting at 4 PM.
The wait is almost over!

Get prepped to dive in, Samurai
Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be a demanding game for your rig. Watching some of the latest trailers should have already clued you in to such. However, you can still play the game even if you’re rocking a GTX 1060. That’s some good news.
The not-so-good news is that if you want decent ray tracing, you’ll have to opt for at least a RTX 3070, according to Nvidia and the recent requirements sheet. Luckily, you should still be able to get away with some ray tracing if you have a 20 Series GPU. But I still imagine that most of us without at 30 Series card (many of us won’t for a while) will have to do a bit of light tweaking in our early hours.
Cyberpunk 2077 releases for PC and Stadia on December 10.
