As incredible as The Witcher 3 was at launch, some of the best content for the game came later in the form of two highly praised expansions that added a ton of extra content to the game. This strategy paid off handsomely for CD Projekt Red at the time and it looks like we’ll be seeing something similar occur with Cyberpunk 2077.
During an interview with Prima Games, Cyberpunk 2077 UI designer, Alvin Liu, said: “we are talking about expansions in the future, we want to make sure everything is 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 that as well for Cyberpunk 2077”.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that CD Projekt Red is holding anything back from the main game or chopping anything out to sell to you later. The main game is going to be “very rewarding” and will be a “full value game” just like The Witcher 3 was several years ago.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming out on the 16th of April 2020. At this point, it looks like the developers have their plans in place and are forging ahead. Once all of that is sorted, we’ll start to hear more about expansion/DLC plans. If these expansions end up being similar in scope to Hearts of Stone or Blood and Wine, then I’m sure many of us will be pleased.
KitGuru Says: CD Projekt Red did such a great job with The Witcher 3 and its expansions, so I’m excited to see what they manage to do this time around with Cyberpunk 2077. We’ve just got to get the main game out of the way first and into the hands of players. April 2020 can’t come soon enough.
