“2.0 and Phantom Liberty are the last big updates. We’ll do a little something more, but those are the last big ones,” he confirmed. “Then it’s Cyberpunk 2. Or ‘Orion,’ I should say, whatever we end up naming it.”
Despite the fact that Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty has brought players back to the game, demonstrating the best online performance since the original release and receiving quite positive ratings (Steam rating – 87/100, Metacritic – 89/100), the authors decided to stop. It’s understandable, the development of Cyberpunk 2077 began more than 10 years ago, back in 2012, so it’s time to move on.
It’s a shame, because at one time Witcher 3 received two very cool big expansions – Hearts of Stone and Blood & Wine. Initially, two add-ons were planned for Cyberpunk 2077 as well. However, the difficult start of the game, time and money spent on bringing the game to a pleasant state forced CD Projekt to abandon these plans.
As for the sequel, it is too early to talk about it. So far, CD Projekt hasn’t even named the time period of the Cyberpunk universe in which the events of the new game will unfold. Either it will be a direct sequel to Cyberpunk 2078 or Cyberpunk 2045, because this is the time period described by the latest version of the board game rules – Cyberpunk Red. So, we are waiting for the news.
