E3 2019: Cyberpunk 2077 For PC Is Digital-Only In US [Update: They Changed Their Minds!]
Cyberpunk 2077's collector's edition wasn't going to be available for PC in North America, but that's now changed.
While it's hard to top the news that Keanu Reeves plays a significant role in the game, there is more good news on the way for Cyberpunk 2077 fans. After saying the PC version of the new game would only be available digitally in the US--meaning that the cool collector's edition, featuring a statue, was out of reach--CD Projekt Red has now reversed course.
The game's official Twitter account has acknowledged the outcry over this decision and revealed a physical PC release will happen in the United States after all. "Good news for our US community - [Marcin Momot] kept telling us how much you all want #Cyberpunk2077 PC editions (Standard and CE!) available physically in stores. It‘ll happen - we‘ll share more details in the future!" The original story follows.
Cyberpunk 2077 finally has a release date and Keanu Reeves, and now developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed more details about the game's release.
In the United States and all of North America, the PC edition will be digital-only. Among other things, this means the impressive-looking collector's edition will not be available on PC in the USA. In other parts of the world, Cyberpunk 2077 will release boxed copies that come with download codes to redeem the game on GOG, and this includes both the standard edition and the collector's edition.
To answer questions about the availability of PC version of #Cyberpunk2077 in the US. PC will only be available digitally. All other countries where boxed PC game is being sold will have a downloadable code inside (both SE and CE). Hope this clears things up!— Marcin Momot (@Marcin360) June 10, 2019
To get the collector's edition in North America, which comes with a neat statue and other extras, you'll need to buy the game on Xbox One or PlayStation 4.
