- Developer CD Projekt Red has been enjoying Cyberpunk 2077’s period of resurgence, but this did not come without a hefty period of blatant criticism and negative feedback.
- The game, following the roll-out of Update 2.0 and the release of the Phantom Liberty DLC expansion, has attracted its fan base afresh, amassing admirable player counts and sales figures.
- In recent times, CDPR has unveiled a new collection for Phantom Liberty players, titled “Secret Agent Gear Collection.” The bundle retails for $180 and includes two character statues and more.
Taking to X (formerly Twitter) to make the announcement, it appears Cyberpunk 2077 has more merchandise in store for Phantom Liberty fans. The developer CD Projekt Red has unveiled a brand-new collection bundle, titled Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty Secret Agent Gear Collection. The goods retail for $180 together, and include two character statues of Solomon Reed and Songbird.
That’s not all—there’s an exclusive Nusa Challenge Coin, a Militech Chimera blueprint lithograph that’s printed on metallic paper, the “Ten of Swords” Comic Book, and a Magnetic Closure Box that encompasses all this fancy stuff. It’s worth noting though that the whole of it isn’t out yet but is scheduled to be released sometime in January 2024, although CDPR has green-lit pre-orders.
May may be unaware of this but the CD Projekt Red Gear website hosts a number of other collectible items for another mega-popular CDPR IP—The Witcher. Check out the merch store’s catalog to see if something else can pique your interest outside of the aforementioned Phantom Liberty Secret Agent Gear Collection.
In other news, the developer announced on Thursday that Phantom Liberty has sold more than 3 million units to date, and this comes within two weeks of the expansion’s launch. In addition, the cumulative sales for the franchise have topped 25 million copies, marking an admirable feat for Cyberpunk 2077 and CD Projekt Red as a whole, especially after the disaster of a launch that the action RPG witnessed for itself.

Fairly speaking, I played Cyberpunk 2077 when it was launched, and experienced nothing more than god-awful disappointment, considering the action RPG’s sheer inability to run smoothly for more than 1 minute. Even under that minute, I had to bear poorly loaded textures, not to mention the cherry on top of the crash that came rolling afterward.
Despite all that, I did see the potential that Cyberpunk 2077 was looking to tap into, and thanks to the arrival of Update 2.0 and constant efforts from the side of the developers, those ambitions have now somewhat genuinely manifested for the game. At the time of writing, Update 2.01 has also rolled out, bringing performance and stability improvements while addressing bugs along the way.
It’s been officially stated that Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t something that CDPR planned on ditching and dashing from, ever. Sitting down in an interview, the game director on the IP, Gabe Amantangelo, expressed how he always had belief in the title and that the devs had Update 2.0 — the revitalizing moment for the action RPG — in mind for a long time.
Part of my conversation at the beginning with my boss and the board was: I believe in the team, I believe in this IP, but I want to do it right. And I’m going to need the support to do that. And they’re like, yes, you have the support. The groundwork we laid in 1.5, 1.6 was all culminating in the plan in 2.0.”
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty was released for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC on September 25, 2023. The base game traces its launch back to December 2020 for a variety of different platforms.
