According to fans who have ordered from this major retailer, copies of Cyberpunk 2077 are already in the wild.
We're finally in the week before Cyberpunk 2077 releases, but it appears that some players won't even have to wait that long. As it turns out, buying the game's Collector's Edition is giving Cyberpunk fans more than just a few extra goodies.
In fact, some copies of CD Projekt's upcoming RPG are already out for delivery, and it's making the rest of us incredibly jealous. Perhaps in all the confusion regarding Cyberpunk 2077's release date, we should expect retailers to make a few mistakes.
Cyberpunk 2077 is Releasing Early at Best Buy
According to those who pre-ordered their copy of Cyberpunk 2077 from Best Buy, the store is already shipping the game. However, this appears to be just for those who opted for the Collector's Edition of the upcoming title.
What's more, some gamers' tracking emails state that Cyberpunk 2077 will be delivered later today. Others report that tomorrow is when their game is out for delivery.
UPDATE: It seems that the Best Buy early release is confirmed. Fans are posting images of their new Cyberpunk Collector's Editions to the envy of all.
What's more, the official CD Projekt account has released a statement, asking players to not stream or spoil the game before launch.
The original story continues below.
Only time will tell if these copies do arrive early, but given that they've shipped a full week before release, we imagine there's a good chance. Of course, seeing as the Cyberpunk 2077 Collector's Edition retails at a cool £249.99, we'd say gamers are entitled to a little extra playtime.
Fans who are desperate to get their hands on the game early could try pre-ordering the Collector's Edition for themselves, but it's worth keeping in mind that we're not far from release now. What's more, anyone attempting to play early will likely not have access to the all-important Day One patch.
We don't yet know exactly what's coming in the essential update, but considering the game's delay after going gold, it could be extremely important. In fact, according to reports, the most recent Cyberpunk delay was due to last-gen consoles' performance.
The PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game needed last-minute adjustments, which the base disc won't have access to. Hardcore fans who get the game early may not want to see an unfinished product anyway.
But if it were us getting an early copy of Cyberpunk 2077, we don't know if we could resist playing. In the meantime, we're still trying to decide which Cyberpunk 2077 life path is best for our character.
Gamers who wish to avoid seeing spoilers should stay away from the internet for a while. Here's exactly what time Cyberpunk 2077 releases, so you can avoid all things neon until launch day.
And although Cyberpunk has been years in the making, we'll still have to wait for the game to be complete. According to CD Projekt, a standalone Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer experience is coming sometime in the distant future.
