Phantom Liberty is Cyberpunk 2077's only expansion for a reason

Thousands of players will return to Night City once more next month to immerse themselves again in the futuristic world of Cyberpunk 2077. The upcoming release of the game's first and only expansion has all the fans of the game excited since it will add a plethora of new features that will completely change the game. From vehicle combat to new talent trees and a whole new side storyline for the campaign, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty promises to enhance your gameplay experience in CD Projekt Red's RPG even for those who do not buy the expansion. In fact, the huge number of changes coming to the game with the release of Phantom Liberty have made the developer suggest that players should go for a completely new playthrough.



One and only one

CD Projekt Red already stated that Cyberpunk 2077 won't be receiving more expansions. Therefore, you can forget about any chances of getting multiplayer into the game. But what's the reason behind such a decision? The studio has finally shed some light on this matter in a recent Q&A session, where it's been confirmed that there will be no other expansion no matter how successful Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is. In the end, it all comes down to the graphics engine.

“The decision has actually been made. As we have announced a long time ago, we’re not going to make a second or third expansion. This is the only expansion of the game, and it has nothing to do with the numbers and how satisfied or not we are with sales or anything of the kind."

“It’s a technological decision to be honest. This is the last time we’re working on the Red Engine for the time being at least, and in the foreseeable future as you know we are working on the Unreal Engine from Epic. This was one of the key reasons why we decided this was the only one.”

Cyberpunk 2077 has managed to leave behind one of the worst launches ever in video game history and it's now one of the best RPGs in the genre. The release of the Phantom Liberty expansion promises to shape it into an even better experience.
