Apart from returning to the PlayStation Store last month and becoming one of the top-selling games on Sony’s platform, any real news about Cyberpunk 2077 was scarce. The previously released patches seemingly addressed the major issues within the game, making it stable after a long while, but no other content has been added to the game since its release. Well, we just found out that the game is getting an enormous fix, prompting many to believe that it’s the long-awaited DLC and a free-next-gen upgrade of the game.
According to the information published on the aforementioned subreddit, all Cyberpunk 2077 add-ons were removed from Epic Games Store, including all data related to the DLC and expansions, of which Cyberpunk 2077 has none, has been completely removed, and the Add-ons tab has been set to Inactive. This could mean several things: either CD Projekt RED plans on updating the Add-ons information about the game to deliver the additional content in the near future, or remove any talk of additional content due to some internal change of plans. The third option could signify that the upcoming enormous fix is actually a content update, but that’s highly unlikely.
Instead, it’s entirely possible that the upcoming update, weighing 32.2GBs, addresses some bugs and issues still plaguing the game. The update has been uploaded to GOG and Steam for QA testing, and though big, probably, it won’t deliver new content for the game, at least from the front-end of the game. Datamining game files showed no DLC or expansion management system so far, so the upcoming update might add those functions, among other things. Anyone who purchased Cyberpunk 2077 from Epic Games Store will be required, or rather forced to update the game to the latest version before playing, even if offline mode. This could signify that the upcoming patch includes the DLC and expansions management system within the game.
Cyberpunk 2077’s new lease on life was granted by numerous patches and hotfixes, which finally made the game stable to play on console systems. This prompted Sony to reinstate the game back on its PlayStation Store, where it topped the download charts last month, despite its ongoing problems on the base PlayStation 4 console. Hopefully, the new enormous fix addresses these issues as well, before adding the free DLC, next-gen console upgrades, and expansions, which were announced to launch at the end of 2021.
