CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 recently received some new content in the form of Patch 1.6, which added new weapons, Fixer Gigs, and tie-ins to the Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime. The FPS/RPG will also receive its first (and only) paid expansion next year with Phantom Liberty.

During CD Projekt’s half-year earnings call for 2022, CD Projekt’s SVP of business development Michał Nowakowski was asked about further support for the IP beyond the expansion. He replied (transcription by VGC), “On the question of further expansions for Cyberpunk, we decided to develop one major expansion for Cyberpunk which is going to take advantage of all the capabilities of the new-gen consoles.

“Having said that, we’re fully committed to developing the Cyberpunk IP further, beyond this particular Cyberpunk expansion. We’ve put a lot of effort and time into building this franchise, and we definitely want to continue to build upon what was built right now with new stories, new experiences, and new content, not just in a video game format, but I’ll leave it here.

“So, in terms of expansions, there’s going to be just one major expansion, however, there’s going be new stuff in the future.” As such, the development team has already confirmed an overhaul of the cop system, revamped melee combat, and other new features in the future. These will only be available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PC and Google Stadia versions.

Updated sales figures are unknown but the title has reportedly sold over 18 million copies as of April 2022. Stay tuned for more details and in the meantime, check out our review for the game on Patch 1.5.
