The leaks were right: Cyberpunk 2077 is getting a physical release next month, on the 5th December. The so-called Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition includes the base game and its expansion, Phantom Liberty. However, in what will no doubt be a gut punch for physical enthusiasts, the Ultimate Edition, specifically on PS5, does not include Phantom Liberty on the disc. As the front cover states, the expansion can be redeemed via an enclosed PSN voucher.
The whole package will also be released digitally, which makes us wonder whether this is being treated as a separate product to the standard Cyberpunk 2077.
CD Projekt Red has done this before, with The Witcher 3 and its Game of the Year Edition on PS4. The re-release included all DLC, and was technically counted as a different game on Sony's last-gen console. This meant that the Game of the Year Edition came with its own Trophy list.
It's unclear if Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition will offer the same, but we've reached out to CDPR for clarification, and we'll keep you updated.
What do you make of this? Is Phantom Liberty not being on the disc a dealbreaker? Get physical in the comments section below.
