We previously knew that Cyberpunk 2077 would be supported with DLC packs after launch, but now we have a few more details to go on. CD Projekt Red revealed over the weekend that DLC for the upcoming game would be revealed soon, and it sounds pretty sizable.
"Yes, you can expect a similar path to [to The Witcher 3] after release," CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński said of Cyberpunk 2077's DLC at an investor call over the weekend (as first reported by VideoGamesChronicle). "You can expect more, actually. We're not going into too many details today, but everything will be clear before release."
Cyberpunk 2077 releases on November 17 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. "As we are close to the release, expect the post-release plans to be revealed fairly soon; a series of free DLCs and expansions will be described - as I said, you can expect it fairly soon and everything will be made clear," Kiciński continued.
So we can expect Cyberpunk 2077's DLC plans to be revealed before November 17, and the total DLC size will eclipse that of The Witcher 3. The Witcher 3 also had its DLC plans revealed in full before it launched, and it too had a pretty hefty DLC and expansion schedule, including 16 free DLC packs including quests and equipment, as well as two full expansions, one of which took players to be a huge new area.
Last year, CD Projekt said that no content from Cyberpunk 2077 would be "held back" for release in DLC expansions. DLC isn't the only post-launch content that CD Projekt is working on for the game however, as the developer is hard at work on a multiplayer mode for Cyberpunk 2077, which appears unlikely to launch until at least 2022.
Cyberpunk 2077 releases on November 17 for current-gen consoles and PC, and will be available on day one for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X. It's not the only CD Projekt game coming to the next console generation, as the company revealed last week that The Witcher 3 would be making its way to PS5 and Xbox Series X next year in 2021.
