Archetypal factory game Factorio has moved up its release date over a month due to a conflict with the delayed Cyberpunk 2077. After announcing a launch date of September 25th, Wube Software has made the decision to move that up to August 14th. This means fans are getting Factorio 1.0 over a month early.

The decision to change Factorio’s release date is due to the delay of Cyberpunk 2077’s release to release on September 17th. To avoid competing for attention with what is likely the largest game release of the year, Wube has moved the launch forward. It’s an obvious move, because several weeks following Cyberpunk 2077’s launch will likely be completely dominated by news about and around Cyberpunk to the exclusion of nearly all else.
