The saga of Cyberpunk 2077 will, no doubt, be one for the history books. Despite being a massive financial success, the game received mixed reception largely due to its numerous technical issues (specifically surrounding last gen hardware, though problems were had in all versions to some degree). Since launch, developer CD Projekt RED has been working to fix as many issues as possible with some huge patches. Between that and a recent hack, it has delayed the full next gen version of the game, though they are still aiming to get that out by the end of this year. On top of that, the game is set to have expansions similar to the last game from the company, The Witcher 3. While we don’t know much about it, there is a lot of bodies on that project.

As detailed by their H1 2021 earnings call, and transcribed by the folks at VGC, joint CEO Adam Kiciński gave details about the progress of the expansion. He stated that 160 people were working on the expansion, with 70 put on unannounced titles. That is roughly a quarter of the developer’s staff, for reference. Unfortunately, they had nothing else to share about the expansion from either its potential content, release date or price.

“Right now, 160 people are working on the first expansion for Cyberpunk, while nearly 70 more are involved in unannounced projects.

“Regarding the expansion, It’s in development but we’re not providing any specifics about the date… we would like to keep up the rule that we’re not commenting on the date until we’re ready to deliver that. Regarding the price… historically expansions have been paid as with The Witcher [3]. However, it’s definitely way too early to talk about price, since we’re not even giving the date.”

Cyberpunk 2077 is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia with PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions planned for later this year.
