WARSAW — CD Projekt Red announced that a new, definitive version of Cyberpunk 2077 is coming this fall, titled Cyberpunk 2077: A Game of the Year Edition.
“For players who want the full Cyberpunk experience, this has all the content we’ve released so far in one place,” says a press release from CD Projekt Red. “It includes Patch 1.1, Patch 1.2, and every hotfix we’ve made over the past 6 months to stop people from refunding their copy. It’s the complete incomplete edition.”
“Whether you loved it or hated it, we can all agree that Cyberpunk 2077 was undeniably one of the games that came out last year,” the press release continues. “It was a great surprise and we think that’s something to honor.”
The box art features several accolades from press publications. It notes that the open world game was featured on over 100 critic lists in 2020, including IGN’s “Top 10 Controveries of the Year” write-up and GameSpot’s “Every Game Coming Out in 2020” list.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is an ambitious project …” reads one truncated quote from a Kotaku review featured on the box. “It’s a … video game that … is impressive, but … features a giant open world that doesn’t … suck, because … it’s good. Keanu Reeves is … in it.”
In addition to collecting all of the game’s content in one place, it also includes every piece of damage control CD Projekt Red has released since its launch. It even features some brand new apologies addressing never-before-seen controversies.
“On behalf of CD Projekt Red, I’d like to own up to our mistake here and say we’re sorry to our fans,” says CD Projekt Red CEO Adam Kicinski in a new video. “While we were trying to be satirical, we can see how some of our various jokes about trans people came off as inappropriate. We truly apologize even though you have to admit it is kind of funny. Right? No? Shit. OK, someone get me a blank yellow apology background.”
The game is scheduled to launch this October and rescheduled to launch this December. It will receive its first patch next February, which CD Projekt Red says should allow players to access the game.
