While Cyberpunk 2077 has improved significantly since its notoriously difficult launch, a CD Projekt developer says the game still has a long way to go. In a video posted on the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit, Quest Director Paweł Sasko shared some behind-the-scenes information on Cyberpunk 2077. When asked if CD Projekt plans to ship a DLC expansion this year, Sasko explained the priorities of the studio.
“I can assure you that we are working [on an] extension, we work [on] Also stuff for you guys,” Sasko said. “That hasn’t changed, we’re still improving the game because we’re all aware that there’s still a lot to do.”
Sasko also expressed his appreciation for the positive feedback they’ve received on the release of the next-gen Cyberpunk 2077, adding that the fan reaction has given the developers more incentive to work hard on the game.
“We are very happy that you liked it [Patch 1.5], and that gives us more… incentive to work for you guys because you show your appreciation for it,” Sasko said. “That’s as much as I can tell you. We’re working on things for you. Like literally every day I’m reviewing quests, talking to people about stuff, so it’s happening.”
While we don’t know much about Cyberpunk 2077’s story expansion yet, there were reports back in November that CD Projekt was committing more resources to work on the game’s expansion. The developer certainly has his hands full, between cyberpunk updates and DLC, the next-gen upgrade of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and the recently announced next game in The Witcher franchise.
The new Witcher game is certainly years away, giving CD Projekt time to focus on the cyberpunk redemption story. When things go well, Cyberpunk 2077 is a fantastic game, as we said in our 2020 review of the PC version of the game. However, at the launch of the last generation console, it was a different story where terrible performance and game-breaking bugs ruined the experience.

For the most part, fans are very happy with the new update as Cyberpunk 2077 is starting to feel more like the players they’ve been expecting for years. Since the 1.5 update, Cyberpunk 2077 has received another patch that includes even more bug fixes.
