Cyberpunk 2077 fans were excited after DLC story mission content seemingly appeared in-game ahead of its official release, but the devs have debunked the rumors.
CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 has had one of the best rebounds in gaming history after its disastrous, buggy launch that left the gaming world furious.
After numerous patches and a hit Netflix anime series, Cyberpunk has emerged as the game fans thought it could be, and with a DLC expansion in the works, the future for Night City looks bright.
Sadly, an alleged new Phantom Liberty DLC discovery that got the community talking thanks to its connection to the Edgerunners anime has been debunked by devs.
Was a Cyberpunk 2077 DLC mission discovered?
In a post on Reddit, user ‘Acrobatic_Internal_2’ posted a video in which they found a “Casino Warfare” mission in the journal.
“I was refreshing CET and archiveXL when this popped up in journal,” they said.

The mission, which has DLC in its title asks the player to “cal Falco” – a potential nod to the Edgerunners character voiced by Matthew Mercer.
“Honestly they all might be placeholders but for me, the most interesting part was the name. Maybe It takes place in an unused casino that is out of the map border,” the uploader added.
Unfortunately, CD Projekt Red’s Global PR Director debunked the rumors on Twitter, stating that “We do not have this content neither in Phantom Liberty nor in the base game.”
However, while some fans were hopeful that this is legitimate, the user admitted to using a number of gameplay mods, and it’s definitely possible that one of them was causing this quest to appear. Or it was just a big ruse by the uploader.
In any case, it’s good to see that the Cyberpunk community is still kicking until Phantom Liberty releases.
