Initially set for “early 2021,” the free DLC now has a extra imprecise launch window.
CD Projekt RED has been via the wringer in the case of Cyberpunk 2077. Regardless of robust gross sales, it’s confronted important backlash for lower options, bugs and efficiency points on Xbox One and PS4. It’s even coping with lawsuits, the second of which was confirmed lately. The developer has laid out a roadmap, ambiguous as it’s, and guaranteed beforehand that free DLC could be coming in early 2021.
Nonetheless, as found by Potato95x on Reddit, that’s now not the case. The official web page for the sport’s free DLC has been up to date to now state its launch “within the coming months.” You possibly can test the unique publish on the Wayback Machine right here which clearly states “early 2021” as a launch date.
There are a few potential causes as to why this variation was made. With the developer having hassle internally earlier than launch, what with crunch and different points cropping up, it in all probability needs to keep away from committing to any strong launch window. In spite of everything, the “coming months” might imply the identical factor regardless if it’s seen in January, April and even September. Within the meantime, the developer can concentrate on its main updates to repair the console variations.
We’ll have to attend and see how this all pans out however suffice it to say that you just shouldn’t count on any free DLC anytime quickly. Cyberpunk 2077 is at the moment accessible for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Stadia – its Xbox Collection X/S and PS5 variations are deliberate for launch later this yr.
