In an interview with Prima Games last week at E3, CD Projekt Red UI Coordinator Alvin Liu shared his views on how the developers are planning to implement DLCs and expansions in the upcoming dystopian cyberpunk RPG Cyberpunk 2077.

Liu said “[w]e want to make sure everything's complete, but we also want to build open worlds. I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to. I think we're going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077.”

Cyberpunk 2077 is slated for release in April 2020, but developer CD Projekt Red already has big plans for additional content throughout its first year.

CD Projekt Red has been one of the most celebrated video game companies for a while now, especially with how they handled everything in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The Witcher 3 now has two expansions, Hearts of Stone, and Blood and Wine, both of which are prime examples of what good DLC looks like. Even though the base game, Wild Hunt, is already enough to be considered a full game with no cliffhangers and no getting locked out of content, The Witcher 3’s expansion packs served to further enhance the gaming experience. Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine took players to new places and provided new experiences while getting to know more about the many colorful characters in the expansive and rich game world, and that’s how CD Projekt Red envisions the expansions it has planned for Cyberpunk 2077.

The Witcher 3, which came out in 2015, has received critical acclaim and accolades for showing the gaming industry how games should be made. In stark contrast to the industry trend of delivering incomplete games and selling players the rest of it packaged as paid DLCs and Season Passes for each year of new content, CD Projekt Red gave the world a complete gaming experience for one price. Not only that, but when The Witcher 3 released its two full-fledged expansions – with new storylines, missions, places to see, and characters to meet – it felt like players were getting two entirely new games.
