Before the release of Cyberpunk 2077 in December 2022, it was one of the most overhyped games because it was coming from the studio behind the critically acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Players had high expectations for the game, but when it was released, it was a major disappointment. The title still went on to sell over 18 million copies despite its buggy mess. And now they just announced a major expansion to the game.
Engadget reported “Phantom Liberty” is going to be an expansion with a new location, a new story, and characters. Keanu Reeves will be returning to play Johnny Silverhand in this spy thriller that involves V, the game’s protagonist, taking on dirty work for the New United States of America. This expansion will skip last-gen consoles and be available only on PS5, Xbox Series S/X, PC, and Google’s Stadia.
Without a doubt, the decision to skip last-gen consoles was due to their aging hardware, and CD Projekt Red is having difficulty making the game playable on PS4 and Xbox One. These consoles also won’t be getting any more patches in the future with Patch 1.6 being the last one.
Phantom Liberty will be coming out in 2023, but there’s no exact release date yet.
