We have since received a statement from CD Projekt Red. According to CD Projekt Red, the mention of being the biggest expansion for the studio was in terms of budget. At the moment, we’re uncertain how large in scope the expansion will be upon release. We have since reflected this in our article below.
Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the more incredibly hyped-up and anticipated video game launches in recent years. Players couldn’t wait to dive into this new RPG from CD Projekt Red. If the development studio’s name didn’t catch your eye, then you undoubtedly know of their previous works. This was the studio that brought out The Witcher video game series. It had gained a massive audience over the years, so naturally, there was interest in their next big title release.
Of course, we all know now that the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 was anything but smooth. After a series of delays, the studio had to go back and work on various updates. This was also a game that saw many returned physical and digital copies. Fortunately, the studio has brought the game around, and players often recommend checking it out again. The slew of updates, along with the animated series, Cyberpunk Edgerunners, has sparked interest back into the main game again. However, if you’re done with the campaign and want something new to enjoy, we do have an expansion in the works.
CD Projekt Red has previously revealed that Phantom Liberty will be hitting the game this year. It would be the only expansion released for Cyberpunk 2077, but hopefully, it delivers in a big way. Recently, a Polish publication called Parkiet has reached out to the development studio asking about when marketing would start to ramp up for the upcoming expansion. Unfortunately, the spokesperson was unable to say when we could see more of the game. Likewise, there is no official release date for the title just yet.
Although, there was one interesting statement made during this exchange. The spokesperson stated that this would be the largest DLC that the studio has worked on. That is quite impressive, as the developers turned out some lengthy DLC in the past with The Witcher franchise. With that said, it’s been noted that this was in terms of a budget spent on an expansion. We’re still uncertain just how long players will have to spend to complete the main storyline campaign or side quests from this upcoming DLC expansion.
So while Cyberpunk 2077 will only receive the Phantom Liberty expansion before the studio diverts its attention, it will at least be a notable one. Now fans are eager for its release but also hesitant as they certainly don’t want to see the expansion release in a similar state that Cyberpunk 2077 launched in.
