Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red says it will remain committed to the Cyberpunk IP even after the expansion of the game.
On Tuesday, CD Projekt Red announced the first Cyberpunk 2077 expansion Phantom Liberty, and a day later it was announced that it would also be the game’s final expansion. However, that does not mean that the developer is leaving the series behind, according to a discussion of the company’s quarterly figures.
“We are fully committed to further developing the Cyberpunk IP beyond this expansion,” said Michal Nowakowski, SVP of business development at CD Projekt Red. “We’ve put a lot of effort and time into building this franchise, and we definitely want to build on that with new stories, new experiences, new content – not just in video game form, I’ll leave it at that.”
On creating one expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, Nowakowski says, “We chose to create one major expansion for Cyberpunk that will take advantage of all the capabilities of the new-gen consoles. [..] So there will only be one major expansion, but there will be new things in the future.”
Cyberpunk 2077 came out for the current-gen in February of this year, and according to CD Projekt Red, its sales are “satisfactory.” [..]especially the console version”.
The Phantom Liberty expansion will be released in 2023 for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. The Edgerunners update was released on Wednesday, the last major patch for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.
