Not much is known about Cyberpunk 2077’s forthcoming Phantom Liberty expansion, which doubles its Hollywood star power with Keanu Reeves reprising its role as Johnny Silverhand and Idris Elba as FIA agent Solomon Reed, but CD Projekt Red says that this expansion the biggest budget it’s ever allocated to post-launch content.
Speaking to Polish outlet Parkiet (via TheGamer), CDPR’s Marek Bugdol initially called the spy thriller DLC the “biggest DLC ever” CDPR has worked on so far. In an update to the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit, community director Marcin Morton clarified the statement, saying that Phantom Liberty “is about the biggest budget when it comes to expansion packs that we’ve released,” and that CD Projekt Red are revealing more information about them will be scope of the DLC in the future.
Phantom Liberty has a high bar to climb, as CDPR’s Witcher 3 expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine have long been considered the gold standards in this area. CDPR’s reputation was badly damaged after Cyberpunk 2077 was released in a less than optimal state in December 2020, but currently the game is in a much better and healthier state, having received significant patches and updates.
There were many fallout that CDPR had to deal with following the release of Cyberpunk 2077, including a class action lawsuit by its investors, which recently reached a settlement whereby the company will pay out $1.85 million to the plaintiffs. Phantom Liberty is coming to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2023, and a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 is also officially in development.
