CDPR confirms the fate of Cyberpunk 2077 after Phantom Liberty.


    The latest update for Cyberpunk 2077 is so big it’s so earth-shattering, you’d think it might wipe out players forever. With so many bug fixes, quality-of-life changes and new features added to the game – even before considering the massive Phantom Liberty DLC – players clearly have a lot to do.

    As we move away from the brand new Cyberpunk, players are wondering what the future holds for the game. It looks like we officially have our answer from CD Projekt Red, but it might not please everyone.

    While talking to PC gamer, Cyberpunk 2077 game director Gabe Amatangelo has made it clear that the team is ready to move on to pastures new. Now that we have our newly updated Cyberpunk and the game has largely changed its reputation, it might be time to move on.

    When asked about the future of cyberpunk and what comes next, Imatangelo succinctly stated, “Then it’s Cyberpunk 2. Or ‘Orion’, I should say, whatever we call it“Practically confirming that when it comes to new content, we shouldn’t expect anything from the game we have right now.

    There’s still a lot for players to do, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be a shame to hear that we won’t be getting another Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. Fans can take the Skyrim route and continue the game through mods, but in terms of what’s new from the devs, it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 is over.

    CDPR is known for its impressive expansions, but unlike The Witcher 3’s Blood & Wine and Hearts of Stone, Phantom Liberty looks like it’s ending our current adventure in the Night City.

    Cyberpunk 2.0 has the highest number of players in the game.

    After the disaster of the game’s original launch, it’s clear that 2.0 and Phantom Liberty’s redemption arc have been popular. According to Steam DB’s numbers, Cyberpunk 2077 has achieved a brand new peak for the title at 246,754 concurrent downloads on Steam.

    That’s quite a feat for a game that, like Cyberpunk 2077, flopped on its first attempt in 2020, but the game seems to have come back stronger than ever. We’ll have to wait and see if the mysterious Orion will launch similarly to the OG, or if things will be a little smoother.
