• Similar to what CD Projekt Red did for "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" in 2015, DLC plans for "Cyberpunk 2077" will be revealed before its November release
  • CD Projekt Red president Adam Kiciński addressed investors and assured them that fans can expect even more from "Cyberpunk 2077" in terms of DLC and expansions
  • Level designer Max Pears echoed those sentiments when he said that they've learned from what happened with "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" and they will apply those here

CD Projekt Red president Adam Kiciński notes that fans of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” should expect more post-release content for the upcoming “Cyberpunk 2077” than the former game ever received.

Kiciński told investors in a conference call that post-release content plans for “Cyberpunk 2077” will be revealed fairly soon and that it would follow a similar DLC plan to what the developer and publisher did for “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.”

Just like the DLC plan for “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” was revealed months ahead of its May 2015 release, Video Games Chronicle reports that will be the case before the November 19 release date for “Cyberpunk 2077.”

“Yes, you can expect a similar path [to The Witcher 3] after release,” he said. “You can expect more, actually. We’re not going into too many details today, but everything will be clear before release.

“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 then everything will be made clear,” Kiciński added.

Following its release five years ago, “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” dropped two pieces of free DLC every week for two months after it began selling. Among these DLC packs were five new quests, new weapons and armor sets, cosmetics, and a New Game + mode.

There were two story-driven expansions announced several weeks before the May 2015 release called “Hearts of Stone” and “Blood and Wine.” These promised an additional 30 hours of gameplay to the base game.

These latest comments from Kiciński and CD Projekt Red seem to intimate that “Cyberpunk 2077” will receive more than those two full story expansions and the 16 total DLC packs that “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” got.

In September of last year, “Cyberpunk 2077” level designer Max Pears indicated that the DLC strategy for the coming title would be influenced by post-launch support for “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.” Pears also said that CD Projekt Red had “learnt a lot from ‘The 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. We’ll look to take what we’ve learnt from Witcher 3 and apply that,” Pears said. Aside from current generation consoles, "Cyberpunk 2077" is also scheduled for release on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
