Can you believe we’re coming up to three years since Cyberpunk 2077 released? What a rollercoaster it’s been for CD Projekt Red’s non-Witcher game, and soon you’ll be able to own a special Ultimate Edition version of the dystopian RPG.

In a recent post on CDPR’s website, the developer has said it will be launching the Ultimate Edition of Cyberpunk 2077 for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC. It’s releasing digitally and as a physical purchase, both of which will be available from December 5.

As for what’s in it, well, you’ll get the OG game (natch), along with the free 2.0 update that overhauled a lot of stuff, and the one and only DLC, Phantom Liberty. It’s basically an all-in-one package, if that’s what you’re after in time for Christmas.

We can forgive, but can we forget?

As time goes on, it becomes easier to talk about Cyberpunk without having to remind ourselves of the bad old days. However, I’d wager it’s a sting that’s still felt by many, especially for those of us who tried to play it on console when it released.

Things are, thankfully, much different now. The aforementioned 2.0 update was just one of the ways CD Projekt Red made some key changes to the game, improving things along the way. Before that was the rather substantial patch 1.5 that rolled out in February 2022.

In short: we’ve finally arrived. However, it’s at a time when the studio is looking to move onto new things. While we’re getting a Cyberpunk follow-up and a new Witcher saga, CDPR has also said that 2077 is getting no more major updates.
