It's official: Cyberpunk 2077 has gone gold with little over a month left to go until launch.

The official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account announced that the game had finally gone gold earlier today on October 5. Various CD Projekt developers took to Twitter to express their joy at Cyberpunk 2077 finally going gold, after the project was first revealed back in 2013, before The Witcher 3 had even been released.

It's been a long time coming, but now the end is finally in sight for Cyberpunk 2077. If you're unfamiliar with the term, "going gold" means that a final version of the game has been pressed onto a disc (hence why a character is holding a golden disc in that tweet).

Don't take this to mean that development on Cyberpunk 2077 is done though, because you can bet that the quality assurance department at CD Projekt is working incredibly hard to get the game smoothed out, with as little bugs and glitches as possible, before launch.

Speaking of launch, there's now barely a month to go until Cyberpunk 2077 finally launches on November 19. It'll be coming to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, as well as launching on the PS5 and Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

We also finally have an idea of just how big Cyberpunk 2077's Night City will be. A map leak from the physical edition of the game has the city being smaller in space than the map of The Witcher 3, but more densely packed. Additionally, it's been revealed that Cyberpunk 2077's main story will be shorter than The Witcher 3's, after complaints from players that the latter was too long.
