It’s no secret that Cyberpunk 2077 had a terrible launch. The game’s release was marred with crashes, bugs, bad performance, underwhelming features, and more. The developer, CD Projekt, was aware of that as well. The company has since released several patches to address some of the issues but even after a year, the game’s state is still not very good. A recent rumor suggests that it won’t stay the same for long.

The game didn’t receive any substantial update during Q4 2021. The lack of support was noticed by fans, with some thought that the game was abandoned. Thankfully, that’s not the case. A recent rumor posted by 4Chan revealed tons of new information about the future of Cyberpunk 2077.

The Rumor

The upcoming next-gen patch/Patch 1.5 will be treated as a soft relaunch for the game. It will rename the game Cyberpunk 2077 Samurai Edition. It’s already confirmed that the next-gen update will be released in Q1 of 2022.

CDPR will do a big reveal in February about this patch. Besides that, the same stream will also reveal the game’s first expansion pack and the upcoming Cyberpunk anime.

First Expansion

The first expansion pack will take place in Pacifica. You can explore and find quests in an area called the “Combat zone." There will be two new gangs here - the Bozos and the Slaughterhouse. The new area seemed inspired by S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

The second expansion pack is currently in early development but will only launch if the first expansion does well in sales.

Free DLCs and Features

Not all the new content is paid, however. The same rumor revealed that the update will bring new features and improvements to the base game. The loot system will be rebalanced, and a new UI will be added. AI will be reworked, and new features like Barbershops and the Transmog system will be introduced.

Free DLCs will include a new game plus, four new weapons, apartment customization, and new missions.

Keep in mind that all of these are just rumors for now. So take them with a grain of salt.
