CD Projekt Red Says It Won't Hold Any Cyberpunk 2077 Content Back for Future DLC

CD Projekt Red Says It Won't Hold Any Cyberpunk 2077 Content Back for Future DLC

Its approach sounds similar to how The Witcher 3's DLC was handled.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a massive world, set in the universe of tabletop role-playing game Cyberpunk 2020, so there's a lot of room to add more even after the game comes out. But CD Projekt Red says, in a new interview, that it plans on shipping a full game rather than selling it in pieces.

In an interview with Prima Games, UI coordinator Alvin Liu says the team is "talking about" future expansions, but they want to make sure everything is complete. "I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to," says Liu. "I think we're going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077."

However, the team isn't going to be cutting out of the main game to make that happen. Liu says Cyberpunk 2077 will have a "very rewarding ending," brought about by the conflicts and characters in the main narrative.

"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," Liu told Prima. "You're going to get the whole, full value game here."

Cyberpunk 2077's E3 2019 had some highs and lows. CD Projekt Red revealed that Keanu Reeves will be in the game and talk a lot, but some controversy around in-game materials left folks uneasy. In response, CD Projekt Red says "there are a lot of people at the office that really care about these subjects and we want to do it right." The game seems dead-set on tackling sensitive subject matter in the main narrative, so hopefully CDPR manages to pull it off by its launch on April 16, 2020.
