Cyberpunk 2077 is getting its first any only expansion with the Phantom Liberty DLC. After the rocky base launch, the latest offering will hopefully satisfy players in continuing the game’s story: we’ve got the latest on Phantom Liberty’s release window, story, trailers, and more.

Cyberpunk 2077 was first released in December 2020, with the launch of the game going less than smoothly for developer CD Projekt Red. Now almost two years later, the game has mostly been patched and fixed up, no longer suffering from the game-breaking issues it had on release.

In September 2022, CD Projekt Red confirmed Cyberpunk 2077 will finally be getting its first DLC content. The expansion, Phantom Liberty, will bring it with a new setting, new content and much more. 

However, those playing the game on PS4 and Xbox One, we’ve got some bad news for you. The DLC will only be arriving on current-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

Here’s all the details released so far about the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC.

CD Projekt Red is yet to confirm when Phantom Liberty will be dropping. At this point in time, the only release window for the DLC the developers are willing to confirm is it is set to arrive some time in 2023

If the DLC does drop in 2023, it will then have been almost three years since the game was first launched.
