CD Projekt Red teases Witcher-style Cyberpunk 2077 expansions

But studio “not withholding content” for game’s initial release

CD Projekt Red appears set to expand the world of Cyberpunk 2077 post-release with the launch of Witcher-style expansions.

That’s according to UI Coordinator Alvin Liu, who told Prima Games: “We are talking about expansions in the future. We want to make sure everything’s complete, but we also want to build open worlds.

“I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to. I think we’re going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077.”

The studio’s last game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, received two significant expansions promising an additional 30 hours of gameplay.

Liu went on to say that the game players get on launch day will include a “very satisfying story arc” and “very rewarding ending”.

“We’re not withholding content, we’re not withholding story for the future to try to, you know, monetize it or sell it in pieces or anything like that,” he said. “You’re going to get the whole, full value game here.”

At E3 last week, Liu told VGC he thinks CD Projekt Red will be “very fair” with whatever it decides to do in regard to a potential next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077.

He also said the studio is “proud” of The Witcher 3’s upcoming Nintendo Switch port and that its “biggest changes” involve user interface and controls.
