Following the delay of Cyberpunk 2077 for a few weeks, the DLC expansions and multiplayer mode for the game will logically arrive later than expected.
CD Projekt RED has already planned several DLCs for Cyberpunk 2077, which will appear after the release of the post-apocalyptic RPG, which will be joined sometime later by a multiplayer. Unfortunately, following the two-month delay of the title, announced on June 18, the DLC and the multiplayer mode are “proportionally” delayed, without much surprise.
Adam Kicinski shared the news during a conference call, saying that DLCs, which the studio prefers to name expansions, will be proportionally delayed due to Cyberpunk 2077 delay. “We prefer to call them expansions as they’re bigger than typical DLCs, but of course the fact that the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has been moved will proportionately move the release of such potential expansions,” Nowakowski said. At the same time, he said that the expansions are still in development.
Later, Adam Kicinski made the same comments for the delay of the multiplayer mode: “When it comes to multiplayer, similarly to the expansions, its launch is going to be proportionately delayed as well, although multiplayer is a bit more distant—so it’s a matter for the future anyway.”
If we could hope that one or more of these expansions would be released at the same time as the release of Cyberpunk 2077, or soon after, we will have to wait a while before we can take advantage of them. Note that for the moment, no release date has been given for the launch of these DLC expansions, even if the multiplayer should not initially be released before the year 2022.
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 19, and will be free on PS5 and Xbox Series X for owners of a copy on PS4 or Xbox One. An update of the upgrade will be released later for next-gen consoles.
