Here’s when Cyberpunk 2077 unlocks next week Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is now just one week away, and it’s really, seriously, no-foolin’ going to happen this time. To wash away any doubt, CD Projekt has now shared the worldwide preload and unlock times.

Preloading on GOG will begin at 12 pm CET on December 7, which translates to 3 am PT/6 am ET, for those of us in North America. Steam and the Epic Games Store will follow at 8 am PT/11 am ET/5pm CET on the same day. 

A few days later, the real fun begins. The release date is December 10 in CD Projekt’s home country of Poland, but because it’s a simultaneous worldwide release on PC and Stadia, some of us will technically get it a little early.

  • 4 pm PT on December 9
  • 7 pm ET on December 9
  • 12 am GMT on December 10
