Cyberpunk 2077 is finally getting a Game Of The Year Edition, two years after it originally released. Proof, I think, that it's never too late to chase your dreams.
To be fair to CD Projekt RED, if they'd attempted to have released a Cyberpunk 2077 GOTY Edition back in 2020, they probably would've been chased out of this dimension by furious gamers. They were also far too busy working to fix a hot mess of a game to even think about it.
But what a difference two years makes! I've written several times in the past just how much I now genuinely adore Cyberpunk 2077 after being thoroughly disappointed with it at launch. CDPR has turned it into the game I thought it was always going to be. It feels more alive, looks better, runs better, and finally allows its excellent RPG mechanics and world to shine the way they deserve to.
That's why it's kind of nice to see the game take a bit of a victory lap after two years of hard work with this official GOTY edition. It really underlines just how far the game has come, no? That's how I choose to look at it, anyway. No doubt some of you will still be pretty annoyed.
Anyway, it looks as if the GOTY edition will be released in 2023, after the game's major Phantom Liberty expansion releases. CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński told investors as much during a recent call, according to Stockwatch (via Insider Gaming)
"It's a natural order of things," Kiciński said. "It was the same with The Witcher 3, which after both expansions was finally released as a Game of the Year Edition and has been operating on the market ever since. The same can be expected in this case. It's quite obvious."
