New Cyberpunk 2077 updates and free DLC have been delayed to 2022
Updated product roadmap shows fresh content won’t arrive until next year
The launch of new Cyberpunk 2077 updates and free DLC has been delayed from later this year to 2022.
The Cyberpunk 2077 content roadmap (pictured below) was updated on October 28 to reflect what’s currently in development and when it will be released.
“Updates, improvements and free DLCs” will now be released in 2022, it confirms.
Prior to October 28, the roadmap was last updated on August 18, when “multiple updates and improvements” and “free DLCs” were listed as arriving later this year.
VGC has contacted CD Projekt Red for comment on this story.
The game’s product roadmap was updated following last week’s news that the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of both Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have been delayed to 2022.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2022 and The Witcher 3 is planned for the second quarter of 2022.
The company said the product delays were based on “recommendations supplied by persons supervising development”. It added: “Apologies for the extended wait, but we want to make it right.”
In June, CD Projekt said it believed Cyberpunk 2077‘s performance had reached a “satisfying” level, following six months of patches designed to improve the game from its much-criticised launch state.
Post-launch plans for Cyberpunk 2077 were significantly altered following its troubled release, but the game finally received its first piece of DLC in August alongside its biggest patch yet.
The game’s last major update, patch 1.31, arrived in mid-September, introducing a number of gameplay, quest and open world fixes, plus visual and UI improvements.
CD Projekt announced last week that it had acquired American studio The Molasses Flood, the Boston-based developer best known for roguelike The Flame in the Flood and cooperative village-building game Drake Hollow.
