So, Cyberpunk 2077's collector's edition will be made available for PC in the United States, after all, thanks to some unrelenting fans.
It had previously been announced that the PC version of the game would not be sold as a collector's edition in the US for reasons unknown, leaving gamers quite unhappy, as there would be no V action figure, no art book, and no Visitor's Guide to Night City - among other very cool items - for PC players since the game would only be available in digital form.
CD Projekt Red global community lead, Marcin Monot, got on Twitter to share the disappointing news this week.
"To answer questions about the availability of PC version of #Cyberpunk2077 in the US. PC will only be available digitally," he tweeted. "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!"
The powers that be at CDPR were probably under the impression that PC players don't care much for boxes. However, they were duly informed that there are purists out there who don't mind paying extra for a collector's edition of a game even if the actual game comes via a download code.
Well, the cries have been heard, and, thanks to incessant comments from fans all over the US, CDPR has gone back on its stance and will be making the PC version of the upcoming game available in collector's edition form in the States.
The official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account has returned with some awesome news following Monot's prior bombshell.
