Anyone who hasn’t sought a refund for their copy of Cyberpunk 2077 should have new content to experience in Night City sooner rather than later. A post on NME points out this page on the game’s website is live saying DLC will hit Night City in “early 2021,” although given the game’s sliding release date and the need for patches, that could always change or indicate something closer to June than January.
A look at the Internet Archive reveals the page went live at the same time the game launched, although it didn’t attract a lot of attention until the last couple of days. The most pressing updates are the two patches CD Projekt Red promised to address issues on last-gen consoles, which are scheduled to ship in January and February, while dates for tech upgrades on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S have not yet been revealed.
As far as what form the DLC might take when it starts rolling out, CDPR has suggested we’ll see something similar to what happened with its last game The Witcher 3. 16 free DLC updates that came out shortly after the game’s launch added cosmetic upgrades, new animations and some small quest lines, separate from larger paid expansions that tacked on hours of gameplay. Any hope of multiplayer action, however, is still slated for beyond 2021.
