It’s all hands on deck for Cyberpunk 2077’s story DLC, but a recent datamine may have uncovered almost the entirety of it.
Following the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt is putting all its efforts into the game’s first proper DLC expansion.
In fact, CD Projekt has said that most of its development capacity is working on said expansion. With Cyberpunk 2077 appearing to have recovered from the incredibly buggy state it released in, the team assigned to post-launch support has shrunk considerably.
Aside from the fact that CD Projekt believes the game’s perception and sales have improved, it’s now aiming to have the story DLC release sometime in 2023.
A chart shared in the company’s most recent earnings report shows how things have changed since December 2020, back when the game launched.
More than half of CD Projekt’s development was working on fixing/supporting Cyberpunk 2077 by the end of 2021. Over time, more and more people were moved over to development on the story expansion.
While there are no hard numbers, the chart shows that the expansion is the number one priority at the moment.
‘The bulk of our development capacity is currently dedicated to the major story-driven expansion for the game, which we plan to launch next year’ says CEO Adam Kiciński.
The earnings report also reveals that marketing for the DLC will begin this year. Technically, it’s already started but not in the way CD Projekt would have liked: a massive leak.
Apparently, the entire story – as in almost every line of dialogue – from the expansion was added to Cyberpunk 2077’s files in the February patch. It was only recently uncovered by dataminers and is being shared online.
The original Reddit post that leaked it has since been deleted (which only further validates it), but you can easily find the details yourself with a Google search if you’re interested. Obviously, we’re not going to spoil it here.
It’s highly likely that elements of it will change considering it’s not due until next year, but we’ll refrain from spoiling any of it regardless.
Cyberpunk 2077 is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC, and Stadia.
