In an effort to remind me of just how old I really am, CD Projekt Red has announced a Floppy Edition of Cyberpunk 2077—a joke that, sadly, many gamers won’t understand. Funny enough, some team members at CD Projekt Red probably don’t get the joke, given the company began by distributing games on CDs. For those wanting the full experience of classic 1990s game installation, the Cyberpunk 2077 Floppy Edition includes 97,619 3.5″ disks. The company’s initial estimates indicate that it would take about two months of non-stop disk swapping to complete the installation.

At least CD Projekt Red chose 3.5″ disks over the 5.25″ floppy disks I fondly remember.

Are you a fan of sleeper gaming PCs?

Do you yearn for the retrofuturistic experience of the original Cyberpunk?

Do you miss the good ol’ days when game installation was a ritual of its own?

Whichever of the above describes you best, then you’ll love the Floppy Edition of Cyberpunk 2077!

Nowadays, in the era of digital distribution, most PCs come with no drives. However, we also heard many voices from people within our community who love the vintage experience of manual installation. We get it! After all, CD PROJEKT started by distributing games on CDs.

That’s why we’ve decided to explore something you’ve been asking us for since even before the original release — Cyberpunk 2077 on floppy diskettes!

Embrace the ritual of classic game installation using 97,619 3.5” diskettes. Make sure to invite friends over and schedule shifts, as our initial estimations indicate that it might take about 2 months of non-stop diskette-swapping to finish.

Sounds awesome, right? It sure does! Follow the link below to wishlist the Floppy Edition! Be prepared for a truck delivery though!

See you in Night City!
