Cyberpunk 2077 won’t be out for several months, and it’s sure to be a very big game when it arrives, but some people are already wondering what will happen after the game is released. What kind of post-launch support can we expect? CD Projekt Red has promised free DLC and expansions of some sort, but what form will they take?
Well, in an interview with Prima Games, CD Projekt Red’s Alvin Liu seemed to indicate Cyberpunk 2077’s expansions will be similar in style and scope to the ones released for The Witcher 3…
We are talking about expansions in the future. We want to make sure [the story’s] complete, but we also want to build open worlds. I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still wanted to know what everyone was up to. I think we're going to have opportunities like [The Witcher 3] as well for Cyberpunk 2077.
CD Projekt Red delivered two paid expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, for The Witcher 3, both of which provided around 10 to 20 hours of gameplay and all-new story arcs. If fans can expect something similar from Cyberpunk 2077, they’re in for a treat. That said, the main game comes first, and Liu promises nothing is being held back for DLC.
It’s a very satisfying story arc, right? You're going to see characters and you'll see them develop. You're going to see them go through conflicts and resolve those conflicts. It'll be a very rewarding ending. We're not withholding content, we're not withholding story for the future to try to, you know, monetize it or sell it in pieces or anything like that. You're going to get the whole, full value game here.
Cyberpunk 2077 is slated to hit PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on April 16, 2020.
