CD Projekt Red has confirmed that the recently announced Phantom Liberty expansion is the only one planned for Cyberpunk 2077's future.
The Polish developer introduced Phantom Liberty during the latest Night City Wire episode, revealing that the expansion will take place before the ending of the base game. That's why both V and Johnny Silverhand will return as main characters. During the stream, the studio didn't comment on whether players should expect more Cyberpunk 2077 story DLC in the future, but it seems we finally got ourselves an official confirmation.
Speaking to fans in the comments under Phantom Liberty's debut teaser on the official YouTube channel, the studio's representatives confirmed there are no more expansions for the game currently in the works. "As for the future, Phantom Liberty is the only planned expansion for Cyberpunk 2077," the answer below reads.
It's the first time CDPR has officially confirmed we shouldn't expect a second DLC for the title. There was speculation on the subject, but the studio remained silent until now. At the time of writing, the developer hasn't yet announced Phantom Liberty to be the only expansion for the game across its other social channels.
Another interesting hint you might have missed during Night City Wire is that Phantom Liberty will be coming only to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S, and apparently won't be out for PS4 and Xbox One. CDPR briefly mentioned that patch 1.6 will be the last major update for last-gen consoles, and by all accounts, it looks like the same is true for Phantom Liberty as well.
The team refers to Phantom Liberty as "a spy-thriller expansion set in an all-new district of Night City." While no doubt an exciting prospect, it's a bit of a letdown for long-time fans as the studio decides to shift focus to other upcoming projects like the next Witcher game, and perhaps ending Cyberpunk 2077 support next year. The expansion is coming sometime in 2023 with no specific date announced as of yet.
