Cyberpunk 2077 web site promised free DLC in early 2021 — however don’t wager on ‘quickly’

For my part, Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t fairly the catastrophe some have prompt. The sport is enjoyable. The bugs are enjoyable! The bugs that actually, actually weren’t enjoyable have been patched. Refunds had been made extensively obtainable, and regardless of that refund possibility, the sport offered 13 million copies in simply two weeks.

However writer CD Projekt nonetheless has a damaged fame to repair and an investor lawsuit to battle, so I wouldn’t put an excessive amount of inventory within the headline you might need learn right this moment: that we’re all getting free DLC for the sport in early 2021.

It’s doable! And it’s completely what this official web site guarantees. However that promise could also be outdated.

As Engadget factors out, the Web Archive’s Wayback Machine reveals that this promise could have been reside on the web the identical day the sport launched — earlier than the outcry started, and positively earlier than CD Projekt held an emergency convention name on December fifteenth to debate how the corporate would react.

On that decision (PDF transcript), CD Projekt president and co-CEO Adam Kiciński informed buyers that it was “too early to guage” when the corporate would possibly be capable of launch DLC.

Particularly, he was requested: “How do you are feeling about your skill to launch a few DLCs subsequent yr, and, clearly, multiplayer in 2022?” (CD Projekt had beforehand stated that multiplayer would miss 2021.)

The total reply: “To be sincere, it’s too early to guage. In the meanwhile please allow us to deal with the scenario, and please allow us to make some extra assessments – that’s nonetheless forward of us; we don’t know but, and we’re now centered on bettering Cyberpunk. We’ll focus on this early subsequent yr.”

At the moment, we’re anticipating two main patches for the sport in January and February respectively, like the corporate promised on December thirteenth in its apology submit:

Past that, some free DLC would in fact be good. Personally, I simply need NPCs that know the right way to drive.
