'Cyberpunk 2077' Devs Launch Themed $500 Watch Before Any Actual DLC

CD Projekt Red, the studio that made Cyberpunk 2077, has revealed a themed blockchain watch ahead of any actual DLC for the game. Or any actual details on the DLC. Or any actual dates that we would expect the DLC to launch.

Inhale. Exhale. Let's go. It is nearly the one year anniversary of the launch of the dystopian sci-fi title, though no one from CD Projekt Red is leafing through the scrapbook entry for December 2020 with a smile on their face. The game had been delayed numerous times over the course of its eight years in development and the hype for the game had started to sour at this point. Sensing danger, it seemed that the studio's higher ups chose to push the game out of the door rather than continue working on it and ensuring that it was a fully functional product.

Take a look at that fully functional product here in our Cyberpunk 2077 Performance Victim Unit - reviewing the game on PC and consoles.

This was probably the worst outcome for Cyberpunk 2077. In the company's most recent fiscal report, it qualified that the year-on-year consolidated net profit loss was to do with "expenses related to updating Cyberpunk and exploratory work on new projects which are at an early stage of development." Schedules for future projects slid as the team rectified the snowdrift of issues with Cyberpunk 2077, from totally corrupted saves, decapitated NPCs, catapulting cars, chaotic collisions, broken storylines, and more.

With all of this in mind and a renewed commitment to fixing the game for as long as it takes, it's incredible to see CD Projekt Red release the T-2077 - a titanium blockchain watch created in collaboration with Błonie. We literally don't know what the roadmap for repairing the game looks like, but when we do, your $500 Cyberpunk 2077 watch will tell you how long there is to wait!

Only 700 units of this watch have been made, and the blockchain feature lets the wearer own a "digital certification of authenticity, effectively a digital passport for their watch, mitigating the risk of counterfeiting." Like. It's not even stylish. It doesn't riff off of the colour palette of Johnny Silverhand, or Judy, or Panam, or... it's a chunk of grey slapped on your wrist.

If it were truly to be inspired by Cyberpunk 2077, I would hope that the watch face shows the wrong time every so often just to keep you on your toes. And then explodes.
