More bad news for gamers as another two of 2020's biggest games get pushed back
JUST LET US PLAY THEM PLEASE!
Just a few days ago, we got word that both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel's Avengers have been pushed back significantly, and now we find out that two more games have also been rescheduled to much later in 2020.
In short, we hope you got lots of new games to play over Christmas, because you're going to need them for a while longer yet.
First up, Iron Man VR. Yep, another Marvel game, another delay. In what could potentially be one massive one-two knock-out win for virtual reality games this year (see also: Half Life: Alyx), 2020 could be when we all decide to finally invest in a VR helmet.
But just not for a while yet, as the PS-VR game was originally due to drop Friday 28 February, and now won't arrive until Friday 15 May.
The developers at Camouflaj took to Twitter to make the delay announcement:
"In order to deliver on our vision and meet the high expectations of our amazing community, we’ve made the difficult decision to move Marvel’s Iron Man VR to a May 15, 2020 release. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding. You’ll be hearing from us again soon!"

And now for the more painful of the delays, one that ranked highly on our 10 Most Anticipated Games of 2020.
Cyberpunk 2077, featuring none other than the internet's boyfriend Keanu Reeves, was set to drop on Thursday 16 April, but has been pushed back five whole months, to Thursday 17 September.
Once again, developers CD Projekt Red took to Twitter to make the announcement:
"We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there's still work to be done. Night City is massive - full of stories, content, and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, finishing and polishing. We want Cyberpunk 2077 to be our crowning achievement for the generation and postponing launch will give us the precious months we need to make the game perfect."
The delay will just add to the already insane amount of anticipation, and while it was set to drop on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia, the late-in-year date could now mean it will also drop on PS5 and Xbox Series X when they both launch towards the end of 2020.
