CD Projekt Red announces Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty major expansion for current consoles in 2023 – Effinate Games

It’s been a long time coming, but CD Projekt Red has finally shared details about Cyberpunk 2077’s first major expansion. The RPG has received updates and DLC since its launch in 2020, but this expansion will add a new area and new story content.

Titled Phantom Liberty, it is described as a spy thriller expansion, with the teaser trailer seeing protagonist V return to pledge their service to the new United States. Keanu Reeves’ character Johnny Silverhand is also back, though he doesn’t seem happy with V’s new allegiance. While the teaser trailer is light on story details, CD Projekt Red has confirmed that it will take place in a new district of Night City.

The expansion is currently slated for a 2023 release, so fans will still have to wait a while for it. What’s more, in a blow to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners, Phantom Liberty is a current re-release and PC release. CD Projekt Red has chosen to end support for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077 with patch 1.6. So only players on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC will be able to access the new expansion. As a reminder, you can upgrade your PS4 or Xbox One version to the respective PS5/Xbox Series X version at no extra cost.

Phantom Liberty likely won’t be the only expansion for Cyberpunk 2077. Back in 2019, CD Projekt Red mentioned handling Cyberpunk 2077’s post-launch support similarly to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. That game saw two expansions, so there’s no doubt there are plans for at least one more Cyberpunk 2077 expansion after Phantom Liberty.

As for patch 1.6, it releases today and also adds new content based on the anime spin-off, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, which is now scheduled to release exclusively on Netflix next week on September 13th.
