CD Projekt RED isn't far from launching its The Witcher 3 Next-Gen Upgrade, but there's still a fair amount of Cyberpunk 2077 stuff ticking away in the background. The team is continuing its work on the futuristic RPG's expansion, Phantom Liberty, and sometime after that a Game of the Year Edition will launch.
As reported on by Polish site Stockwatch, CDPR CEO Adam Kiciński recently addressed investors about the future of the studio and what's in the team's pipeline. Kiciński says that a Cyberpunk 2077 GOTY edition is an "obvious" next step after the game's DLC launches.
"It's the natural order of things - it was the same with The Witcher, which after both expansions was finally released as a Game of the Year Edition and has been on the market that way ever since. The same can be expected in this case. It's quite obvious."
The studio CEO also gave a rough timeline for such a launch. We can expect to see a Cyberpunk 2077 GOTY Edition "just after" the Phantom Liberty update, which at present is on track for a 2023 release.
The Witcher 3 eventually saw two DLC expansions in 'Hearts of Stone' and 'Blood and Wine', however that doesn't appear to be the case for Cyberpunk 2077. For now, the team only has plans to launch one expansion for its 2020 open world RPG.
