Perhaps the largest information shared during the presentation today is that the above will be the final update for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. There will be no new support beyond update 1.6. Going forward all updates will be for the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series consoles only. And on that front, some very exciting information was shared.
During the presentation it was noted that an additional “large” update was coming to Cyberpunk 2077 in the future that would include new abilities and a complete overhaul of the policing/vehicle combat systems. If that wasn’t exciting enough, CD Projekt Red then shared a brief teaser for “Phantom Liberty” which is the full expansion coming in 2023. Check it out below!
As always, we highly recommend watching the full presentation if possible!
