CD Projekt Red has revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 will receive a Game of the Year edition once its Phantom Liberty expansion is released in 2023.
As reported by Polish website Stockwatch (and spotted by Insider Gaming), CD Projekt Red president and joint-CEO Adam Kiciński said during a recent investors conference that Cyberpunk 2077 will follow in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s footsteps and receive the new edition that includes all previously released DLC in one package.
“It’s the natural order of things,” he said. “It was the same with the Witcher, which, after both expansions, was finally released as a Game of the Year edition and has been on the market that way every since. The same can be expected in this case.”
The Phantom Liberty DLC – Cyberpunk 2077’s one and only paid expansion that will include hours of new story content – is expected to launch sometime in 2023, and Kiciński said the Game of the Year edition will be released soon after.
Given this expansion is only being released for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC, it’s likely the Game of the Year edition will also only be on these platforms.
In our 9/10 review of the base game on PC, IGN said: “Cyberpunk 2077 throws you into a beautiful, dense cityscape and offers a staggering amount of flexibility in how you choose to take it from there.”
