- Stadia will have 10 exclusive titles in 2020

Shigeru Miyamoto is well known for being the creator of most major Nintendo franchises, from Mario to Donkey Kong, through Zelda. But he is also known for a famous date that is often repeated and that has already become a tiring thing because all journalists complain about them every time a videogame is delayed.
As Miyamoto speaks in Japanese, there are several versions of the quote, but they all express the same thing: "A game that is delayed ends up being good, but a game that is hurriedly launched will always be bad."
Let us apply this, then, to the delay of Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most anticipated video games of the spring of 2020 and which is now the most anticipated of the fall of this year, and let's relax a little bit all.
In truth, the news has not felt bad because, for certain things, the gamer community can be comprehensive. Usually, when a game is delayed, it is always understood that it is because it needs more time and will be better. And Cyberpunk 2077 has only been delayed once, which helps. If there had been a delay of one year or it would have been the second or third time it was postponed, another rooster would sing.
It would also be logical to be happy for the delay for another simple reason: now there is more time to play the rest of the titles that have accumulated at the end of this generation of consoles (PS4 and Xbox One have a few months left until the new consoles are released ).
Before summer, videogames such as Animal Crossing New Horizons, a cult game for all kinds of players and that fans have been waiting for a long time to reach the Nintendo Switch will arrive; Doom Eternal, the sequel to the 'restart' of the Doom saga and which paints as a festival of absurd violence, demons and ineffable weapons with fantastic uses; Final Fantasy VII Remake, the first installment of the improved version of one of the most beloved video games in the history of the idem; or, finally, The Last of Us Part II, sequel to a saga that captivated PlayStation fans and now comes with an artistic and graphic section and a story that looks like it won't leave anyone indifferent.
With these four titles on the grill, why throw more meat on the grill? Who have time to play one or two video games a month, and thanks, that there is more room to play these games and that Cyberpunk 2077 will arrive after the summer, in September, when there is nothing more on the horizon for now than The launch of the new game consoles is something fabulous.
Especially if, as it is rumored, the new game consoles arrive with compatibility for the previous games. Would it be possible for Cyberpunk 2077 to play with better graphics or more fluently on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X?
The video game industry launches many great titles in a very short time (March and November take the cake) because the fiscal year ends or because Black Friday and Christmas arrive, but they should start to realize that this is going a bit against its customers, who end up deciding on a single game, or two, instead of leaving more air between the pitches and allowing different titles to be played with some calm.
Involuntarily, the launches of these months have ended up working a bit with that dynamic. Not because they want to leave more room, but because the development of video games is a complicated art and can not always be delivered on time.
After all, Doom Eternal was delayed from the end of 2019 to March 20, 2020, the Final Fantasy VII remake was delayed from March 3 to April 10; and The Last of Us II went from February 21 to May 29. So let's rejoice a little about the delays, which will make it more bearable to be a thirty-odd player with other responsibilities, but who can't miss the big throws to sit back in front of the console, even if it's playing an hour, or less, per session.
If you were bothered by the delay and wanted to play now, now, Cyberpunk 2077, think that the worst part of this is taken by CD Projekt, or rather, the workers of the company.
As many developers on social networks have made clear, that a video game does not reach its launch date almost always means that workers not only take extra hours in vain to reach that date but will continue to work beyond their days until The game reaches stores. It is what is known as 'crunch' in the video game industry, a word that literally means 'shredding'.
This is the only negative consequence that the launch has been postponed: the people who are creating it for our enjoyment must be having a bad time and, if it were for them, they would have launched it almost certain time ago.
