Retail pricing for the Ultimate Edition has not yet been confirmed, but we will update this story as soon as CD Projekt Red lets us know.
In early October, CDPR revealed that Cyberpunk 2077 had sold 25 million copies since its launch in 2020, with Phantom Freedom achieving three million sales in its first week. CEO Adam Kiciński then confirmed that the game’s sales were up from the 18 million announced last April and the 20 million in September. So it’s fair to say that 2023 saw something of a resurgence for Cyberpunk 2077 when it comes to retail success.
However, despite the game’s recent surge in popularity, the studio has stated that regardless of DLC sales, it will be the game’s only expansion. CD Projekt’s current focus is on Cyberpunk 2077 continued – doubled “Orion” – which is made by the team of developers responsible for Phantom Freedom.
We don’t know much about the game yet, as it will probably have to wait a few years. Interestingly, the developer said that it hasn’t decided whether the sequel will be first-person like the first game.
