Cyberpunk 2077’s Only Getting One Expansion Because Its Old Tech Is Being Retired
Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red says its upcoming expansion, Phantom Liberty, will serve as the game’s one and only expansion because of its “technological decision” to move from CDPR’s own REDengine technology to Unreal 5.
As we have announced a long time ago, we’re not going to make a second or third Cyberpunk 2077 expansion. This is the only expansion of the game, and it has nothing to do with the numbers and how satisfied or not we are with sales or anything of the kind. It’s a technological decision to be honest. This is the last time we’re working on the REDengine for the time being at least, and in the foreseeable future as you know we are working on the Unreal Engine from Epic. This was one of the key reasons why we decided this was the only Cyberpunk expansion.
Last year, CDPR announced its “multi-year strategic partnership with Epic Games” to develop a new Witcher game as well as a remake of the original 2007 Witcher video game, which is being built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 5 by Polish studio Fool’s Theory.
