Cyberpunk 2077 has now missed its first release window for the free DLC which was initially supposed to release in early 2021.
It has been a rocky road for CDPR since the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. A buggy launch, which included hard crashes, and a game considered so poorly developed for the PS4, Sony removed it from the PS Store. It was only recently that Sony deemed Cyberpunk 2077 worthy for sale upon its return to its digital storefront.
Much like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CDPR promised free DLC for Cyberpunk 2077. Now, this wouldn’t be a free expansion, but rather likely to be some mission quests, weapons, and cosmetics.
You’re late for a very important date!
CDPR released a roadmap for Cyberpunk 2077 revealing release windows for not only the free DLC, but also content updates, the native next-gen release, and a paid expansion. However, as the struggles continued for the studio, CDPR updated its content roadmap.
Sadly, however, despite giving two different release windows for the free DLC, Cyberpunk 2077 has now missed its initial release window for the DLC in question.
The roadmap is getting murky
First spotted by Forbes, the original window for the free DLC was early 2021. Obviously, that never happened. Then a roadmap was released, with the free DLC having a new release window for the first half of 2021.
There has now been another update to the roadmap for Cyberpunk 2077, and the free DLC is now bundled in with “multiple patches and updates”. The new roadmap is even vaguer than the previous one and at quick glance, it looks like the free DLC might now release at around the same time as the native next-gen upgrade. Which is expected to be later this year.
If it’s broken… fix it
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely believe that CDPR needs fix Cyberpunk 2077 and get it prepped for its native release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. However, now that we are into another roadmap, I believe a little more clarity would go a long way.
