Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Floppy Edition Unveiled on April Fool’s Day

In a move that has tickled the funny bones of gamers worldwide, the developers behind Cyberpunk 2077 have unveiled a limited Floppy Edition of the game on April Fool’s Day. Embracing the spirit of the day, this announcement has sparked a wave of amusement and light-hearted banter among fans of the highly anticipated game.

April 1st has long been a day where the gaming community braces itself for a flurry of outlandish announcements and playful pranks from developers. From whimsical in-game events to absurd additions, the tradition of April Fool’s Day in the gaming industry is rich with memorable moments. Among Us players may recall the hilarious inclusion of a Horse Mode by developers, a move that left gamers in stitches. However, this year, Cyberpunk 2077 took the jest to a new level by introducing a tangible product as part of its April Fool’s Day shenanigans.

The limited Floppy Edition, as described on the official website, promises players a “retrofuturistic experience,” harking back to the days when installing PC games was a ritualistic affair. The announcement playfully suggests that the game would span a staggering 97,619 3.5-inch diskettes, requiring a mammoth two months of continuous diskette-swapping for installation. Additionally, an April Fool’s Day message cleverly disguised as a wish list link adds to the whimsy of the announcement.

The reaction from fans on Cyberpunk 2077’s official Twitter account has been nothing short of delightful. Engaging in playful banter, fans expressed their amusement at the prank, with one user humorously remarking that accommodating the Floppy Edition would necessitate filling an entire room, “from the floor to the ceiling.” Another quipped about the potential pitfalls of using outdated technology, jesting, “Knowing my luck [sic] I’d have a failed sector on disk 93538.” The jovial exchange between developers and fans mirrors similar interactions seen in other April Fool’s Day posts, such as the playful antics of the official Pokemon GO handle.

Looking Ahead: The Future of the Cyberpunk Franchise

Beyond the light hearted prank, developer CD Projekt Red (CDPR) remains focused on enhancing the Cyberpunk 2077 experience and expanding the franchise’s horizons. Following the successful launch of Phantom Liberty, a critically acclaimed DLC that rejuvenated interest in the game, CDPR has set its sights on future endeavours within the Cyberpunk universe.

In a recent update, CDPR provided insights into the status of the highly anticipated sequel to Cyberpunk 2077, alongside other projects in its development pipeline. Notably, the next instalment in the Cyberpunk series boasts the second-largest team of CDPR developers, surpassed only by the team dedicated to the upcoming sequel to The Witcher. This investment underscores CDPR’s commitment to delivering a sequel that meets or exceeds the expectations set by its predecessor.

Given the dedication and diligence demonstrated by CDPR in addressing post-launch issues and delivering compelling content updates, anticipation for the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 is palpable. As fans eagerly await further developments, it is evident that CDPR remains steadfast in its mission to craft immersive experiences that captivate audiences worldwide.

In summary, while the announcement of the limited Floppy Edition may have been a playful diversion, CDPR’s ongoing efforts to evolve the Cyberpunk franchise serve as a testament to its enduring commitment to excellence in game development. As the journey into the cybernetic world of Cyberpunk continues, fans can rest assured that the future holds exciting possibilities and adventures yet to be explored.
