CD PROJEKT RED has confirmed that Phantom Liberty, its upcoming major expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, will definitely be a paid product. The news comes from CDPR’s global PR director Radek Grabowski, who noted in a comment provided to GamesRadar+ today that the expansion will be a paid one. Grabowski wasn’t ready to share how much Phantom Liberty will cost yet, but Cyberpunk 2077 players can expect the expansion to launch next year, offering a new “spy-thriller” story with returning characters such as Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand and voice acting from a range of talents that include Sasha Grey. Phantom Liberty is expected to be Cyberpunk 2077’s first and only expansion.
From a GamesRadar+ report:
In a comment provided to GamesRadar+, CDPR’s global PR director Radek Grabowski confirmed that “as for the expansion’s pricing – we have not revealed exact details yet, but it will be a paid one.”
CD Projekt hasn’t confirmed exact pricing, but Grabowski did say that “our expansions are traditionally cheaper than full-price games.” That suggests that while Phantom Liberty might cost a little more than Geralt’s extra adventures, it’ll be cheaper than the $60 Cyberpunk 2077 sold for at launch.
For The Witcher 3, CD Projekt released both paid and free add-on content, but the difference seems to have lied in how it described the new stuff. Using Wild Hunt as an example, ‘DLC’ appeared to be free – but limited – additions, while ‘expansions’ were premium, paid, and significantly larger. Hearts of Stone cost $9.99 on release, while the Blood and Wine expansion, which featured a whole new map, was $19.99.
