Cyberpunk 2077 Expansion Release Date Targeted For 2023 (IGN)
Cyberpunk 2077’s first expansion is slated to be released in 2023, CD Projekt Red President Adam Kicinski announced during today’s earnings call. It offers a window into the ongoing development of the expansion, and Cyberpunk 2077 at large, which CDPR has pledged to continue supporting.
According to Kicinski, the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion is being developed by multiple “agile teams,” which were implemented as part of the “transformation process” that began after Cyberpunk 2077’s disastrous development. He didn’t elaborate on what the expansion would entail, but did say that it will be developed in the same framework with the Witcher franchise.
The status of the Cyberpunk 2077 expansions has been a question mark since the release of Patch 1.5, which completed the CD Projekt’s large-scale overhaul of the project. Earlier this week, Cyberpunk 2077 quest director Pawel Sasko said that Cyberpunk 2077 was “far from finished” while reconfirming the expansion.
