CD Projekt Warns Against Buying Cyberpunk 2077 E3 2019 Jackets On eBay
CD Projekt RED has implored fans not to pay the premium, as it intends to sell a version of the jacket on its own website and while it hasn’t set a price yet, it won’t be charging anywhere near $400 for the item. Ebay is no stranger to listings for promotional items handed out at E3. Each year sees an influx of E3 items up for sale lanyards, figurines, exclusive Funko Pops, that sort of thing.
If you perform a search for Cyberpunk 2077 on eBay today, you’ll likely be greeted by a number of listings for a reversible bomber jacket from the game. The price for these jackets is obscenely high, with some listings surpassing $400. In a post to Twitter (which you can see below)
Please don’t buy the Cyberpunk 2077 jacket on eBay for 400 usd. The plan is to have a similar version in our store. pic.twitter.com/mzG033zGjJ

Right now there are multiple listings for the reversible Cyberpunk 2077 Samurai jacket, which looks like it was meant for CD Projekt staff, VIPs and media. The price varies, but we’re looking at shelling out at least £200 for one of these things, plus delivery fee. US listings were as high as $450.
It’s unclear how these sellers obtained these jackets, but they were likely handed out as promotional items during E3 2019. That, of course, makes them rare and prompts certain recipients to sell them online for a tidy profit. CD Projekt Red, the developers behind Cyberpunk 2077, would like you to know that the bomber jacket isn’t worth anywhere near what these eBay sellers are charging.
Fans eagerly awaiting Cyberpunk 2077 may want to pickup the jacket to reach the ultimate level of immersion, so long as CD Projekt stays to true their word and releases it for a reasonable price. CD Projekt will also be releasing another Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay demo in August, which will hopefully be enough to hold gamers over until the game releases early next year. There will definitely be a lot of competition for Cyberpunk 2077 when it releases, but the game seems like it will be a standout title, even with other major games releasing alongside it.
So, if you’ve already decided that you want to own a jacket like this, you’ll definitely want to hold off until CD Projekt Red starts offering it through its store. You can, of course, buy one of these expensive jackets from E3 scalpers now, but we have a feeling that if you do, you’ll be kicking yourself before long.
