CD Projekt RED has confirmed that the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC will be free in some cases. There will also be some paid expansions with more content as well. The futuristic RPG is slated for release on November 19, 2020, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. After that, expect to see both free and paid DLC. In terms of scale, the consensus around expectations says that the DLC could be similar to what players got for The Witcher 3.
The announcement was made on Twitter, where the official account of the game replied with an “Oh Yeah” Kool-Aid gif to a question about whether there would be free additional content for the new game.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had free DLC after its launch, so this is not much of a shocker.
“We’ve learnt a lot from Witcher 3 and how that DLC worked. We’ve learnt from that, and that is the strategy for how we’ll apply DLC to Cyberpunk as well,” level designer Max Pears said last year.
The new Cyberpunk 2077 DLC is on the way, both for free and paid in the form of expansions, but there has been no other news yet. It will obviously be some time before we see it in any detail though. And with the ongoing issues around COVID-19, there’s a pretty good chance that things get delayed for some time. The title was already delayed once, and it could happen again.
The developer is also working on a few other background projects related to their big new RPG. The developer has been working on the DLC for the game, as well as next-gen ports for launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X as well. There has been no release date set for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions though. Also, players are excitedly waiting for more news on the multiplayer component, which is due out in 2022.
