CD Projekt Red Debunks Cyberpunk 2077 DLC Leak

Happy April Fool's Day, it looks like we've been punk'd by a recent Cyberpunk 2077 leak. Since its release in December 2020, CD Projekt Red's Blade Runner-inspired shooter has faced a few glitches in the Matrix. Alongside critiques that the developer overpromised on what it could deliver, we've seen lawsuits, hacking scandals, delays, and concern that we might never see the mythical multiplayer. CDPR showed off an impressive roadmap that's supposed to secure the future of the title, and while there have been some speed bumps, all eyes are on the first Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. 

After the main game divided critics and casual players alike, developers are trying to assure fans that there's a brighter future ahead for Cyberpunk 2077. We already know it will have as many DLCs as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, meaning if things play out as planned, there will be at least 16 on the way to Night City. As we continue to wait for the first drop, a supposedly massive leak "revealed" the potential names of the DLCs.

 

What was the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC leak?

Reddit user u/PricklyAssassin shared names of several DLCs, with the names reading as follows: Rippderdocs Expansion, Body Shops Expansion, Fashion Forward Expansion, Gangs of Night City, Body of Chrome, Rides of the Dark Future, The Relic, Neck Deep, and Night City Expansion. Looking a little deeper, some of these are probably relatively minor thanks to the way they're named. While Night City Expansion should be a big one, Fashion Forward Expansion is probably just an aesthetic one, while Body Shops Expansion is likely a vehicle repair shop.

The details appeared on the Epic Games Store following the 1.2 patch as an add-on, but were quickly taken down. The fact the leak came from such an official source and were pulled definitely suggest there could be something to this. PricklyAssassin gives their own thoughts on what each name could mean, suggesting that Ripperdocs Expansion will obviously have to do with modding capabilities and Expansion Pass is taking a leaf out of The Witcher 3's book by offering the paid DLCs for a cheaper price.

 

Is the Cyberpunk 2077 DLC leak real?

In a statement to IGN, CD Projekt Red confirmed the leak is not the names of the new DLCs and explained they "are not DLCs for Cyberpunk 2077". This might be a blow to players but it's not all bad news. In all likelihood, the names are probably placeholders instead of the final title. It's entirely possible that the above still give us a hint of what's to come in each DLC. We already know there will be a mix of free and smaller DLCs alongside much bigger expansions that you'll have to pay for. It's a similar tactic to how The Witcher 3 played out. However, it's important to remember The Witcher 3 already had an established legion of loyal fans by the time it started rolling out paid DLCs.

There are also placeholders for the DLC prices at $9.99 each and $14.99 for the Expansion Pass. CDPR didn't confirm or deny whether this pricing structure was correct. At a time critics are still slamming the base game, starting to charge more for DLCs is a risky move to make. Only recently, CDPR reaffirmed its plans for the future and how it will develop games set within both The Witcher and Cyberpunk worlds simultaneously in 2022. Can the developer really juggle two new AAA games AND its Cyberpunk 2077 roadmap at the same time? For now, we're still left waiting for the first mythical DLC and what's really going on in Night City's seedy underbelly.
