While we wrestle over the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red may be going cross-generational, it would seem launch is only the beginning of things for what is already shaping up to be a gigantic game.
According to UI Coordinator, Alvin Liu, Cyberpunk 2077 will likely follow the route of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in terms of expansions, he told Prima Games.
We want to make sure everything’s complete, but we also want to build open worlds, I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to. I think we’re going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077.
The many characters that players will meet in the game will grow and change with time, and the ending to the game will definitely be “rewarding.” Of course, stories are never quite finished, and there is always the opportunity to develop the lore.
“So I don’t want to spoil anything right now, but very satisfying story arc, right? You’re going to see characters and you’ll see them develop,” Liu added. “You’re going to see them go through conflicts and resolve those conflicts. It’ll be a very rewarding ending. We’re not withholding content, we’re not withholding story for the future to try to, you know, monetize it or sell it in pieces or anything like that. You’re going to get the whole, full value game here.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was famous for including tons of free DLC for players, ranging from cosmetics to quests, and also had two huge paid expansions – Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. The size of the expansions could rival other games in terms of content alone.
No concrete plans have been laid out yet for Cyberpunk 2077, be it post-release DLC or expansions, with the studio focusing on delivering another potential masterpiece come April 16, 2020.
