While Cyberpunk 2077 DLC was planned shortly after the game's release, Iwinski said CD Projekt Red's new goal is to release it sometime later in 2021, again focusing on fixes for the releases. current game.
The Cyberpunk Content Roadmap CDPR provided via a blog post on Cyberpunk.net and seen in the tweet above does not have a specific time tag, although the DLC is on the way before the next-gen upgrade.
Assuming these current timelines hold, which might be best taken with a grain of salt, Cyberpunk 2077 owners can presumably expect DLC later this summer.
However, Iwinski only mentioned the game's free DLC, and it's unclear if Cyberpunk 2077's meatier DLC campaigns also fit into the same timeline. It's likely that CDPR's original dates for these have also been pushed.
The first of Cyberpunk 2077's most significant patches will be released sometime before January 23, 2021, with the second following soon after, although Iwinski didn't provide a definitive date for this one. Stay tuned.
