Cyberpunk 2077: Is The Game Planning To Roll Out Fix Patches Under The Title Of ‘Free DLCs’?

Published 03/27/2021, 3:45 PM EDT


Cyberpunk 2077 made history on its release. It was probably the first and only game with such heavy investment to fail on so many levels. With the lag, frame drops, and bug-filled missions, the game was practically unplayable. However, developer CD Projekt RED (CDPR) is still working on improvement.

The studio apologized for the mishap. In fact, they rolled the title out of all online and offline retailers, offering a full refund. CDPR promised to fix the game during the first half of 2021. Patch 1.2, announced a few weeks back, is their most awaited follow-up update after release. However, they had to delay it because of a cyberattack on the studio.

As reported by AltChar, Cyberpunk 2077 may have new DLCs scheduled. A leaker has discovered 10 new DLCs on Cyberpunk 2077’s Epic Games Store page. The DLCs suggest that a lot of new features like barber store and cyberwar are returning to the game that were originally scheduled during release itself.

Cyberpunk 2077 New DLCs

Redditor PricklyAssassin posted his discovery of hidden Cyberpunk 2077 files on the Epic Games store. The community mods later removed the original post, but he attached the updates here. According to the leaker, Epic Games Store originally had a server capacity of 100 GB. However, last month in February, the studio changed the sum allocated server capacity for the game to a massive 500 GB. People usually see this happen mostly months before a game is about to release new updates and content.

However, the story got interesting when the Redditor noticed the removal of some DLCs from the store. Until February 2021, the studio had 18 DLCs listed on their website. But at the beginning of this week, they updated the numbers to 10 DLCs and added 3 paid DLCs. The free DLCs leaked are listed below.

  • Ripperdocs Expansion
  • Body Shops Expansion
  • Fashion Forward Expansion
  • Gangs of Night City
  • Body of Chrome
  • Rides of the Dark Future
  • The Relic
  • Neck Deep
  • Night City Expansion

However, no details including the names or prices of the paid DLCs are available yet.

The leaker also recalled two out of the ten DLCs having titles similar to two Cyberpunk 2077 pre-launch promo videos. He vaguely assumes that the co-incidence simply suggests that they originally planned the content to be a part of the actual release. However, because of unknown reasons, developer CD Projekt RED saved them as expansion.

Looking at the state of the game, one can hardly imagine the studio rolling out new content. The team behind the game is busy fixing the mess they created. However, maybe after a couple of months, we can hope to see them getting back on track and re-releasing new DLCs.
