Cyberpunk 2077 DLC Plans To Be Announced "Fairly Soon", Will Add More Content Than The Witcher 3 DLC

Sounds like the game will offer a more than generous offering of post-launch content.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches on November 17, and the game will receive "more" DLC than the Witcher 3 after it launches.

The news comes via CD Projekt Red's investor call, with the developer's president promising that DLC content would be revealed "fairly soon".

Cyberpunk 2077: DLC News Coming Soon

As explained by CD Projekt president Adam Kiciński, the game's post-launch content will be familiar to anyone that played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (something we reported on here). 

“Yes, you can expect a similar path [to Wild Hunt] after release,” Kiciński said. “You can expect more, actually. We’re not going into too many details today, but everything will be clear before release."

"As we are close to the release, expect the post-release plans to be revealed fairly soon; a series of free DLCs and expansions will be described – as I said, you can expect it fairly soon and then everything will be made clear.”

For reference, The Witcher 3 received 16 smaller DLC packs in the weeks following launch, along with two sizeable (and very well-received) story DLCs, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.

Those larger expansions were revealed prior to launch, but with Cyberpunk 2077's release date drawing ever closer, could we be hearing about it with another Night City Wire?

Both offered new areas to uncover, something we could potentially see in Cyberpunk 2077, potentially with new city areas opening up.

The smaller expansions added a variety of quests, cosmetic changes, and weapons, while even adding a New Game + mode for dedicated monster hunters.

There were even quality of life improvements like UI enhancements, so it'll be interesting to see how Cyberpunk evolves.

Don't expect the game's multiplayer to form part of this DLC, though - the team has previously noted it's unlikely to launch until 2022.

Here's hoping for more news soon - despite CDPR releasing snippets of info about the game's world, factions and characters in recent months, we still can't get enough.

The game was recently demoed as part of NVIDIA's new graphics hardware showcase, with full ray-tracing capabilities. Check it out here.

The developers have also recently discussed their dissatisfaction with the game's melee combat, and have committed to making changes to it before launch.
