Cyberpunk 2077 could see redemption in 2022 with a big patch, a next-gen release and even a major expansion. To symbolize this rebirth, CD Projekt could even choose to change its baby’s name to Cyberpunk 2077 Samourai Edition. At least that’s what many leaks suggest.
The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 is a textbook case. If the title is not bad (especially on PC), its release in 2020 was synonymous with industrial disaster, so much so that the CD Projekt studio was forced to apologize. However, the title could see redemption in 2022, according to some leaks that have appeared on both Reddit and 4Chan. The game might even change its name in order to mark a clear break with his past.
The CD Projekt teams have worked tirelessly for a year to improve the situation. According to the leaks, a video conference will be held in February to reveal the progress of the site. The Polish studio would not only announce improvements, but a real renaissance for the title via its version 1.5. The game would even change its name to call itself Cyberpunk 2077 : Samourai Edition.

This patch 1.5 would therefore be beneficial for the title since it would add a lot of content. The leaks thus evoke the appearance of a hairdressing salon to change its appearance in the game, a reworked AI, a transmogrification system, a new interface, a revised loot system … will be added to this the possibility of customizing its apartment, new weapons, a New Game + system, more telephone conversations with important characters… in short, enough to completely upset your gaming experience. To this will obviously be added the correction of the bugs still present.
On top of that, CD Projekt could unveil the Xbox Series X and PS5 version of the title, which is eagerly awaited by console gamers. A big mini-game (a sort of equivalent of The Witcher’s Gwent but for Cyberpunk) could also see the light of day. The icing on the cake, the first images of the Cyberpunk Edgerunner (Netflix) anime would be presented.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to announce its first single player DLC
But the biggest announcement should actually be for Cyberpunk 2077’s first solo DLC. The studio has never hidden its desire to release full-scale expansions for its RPG, as it had done with The Witcher 3. This premiere extension should, according to leaks from Reddit, take place in the Pacifica area, which houses abandoned hotel complexes. An interesting choice, given that it is a bit neglected in the base game.
The player would therefore evolve in this district transformed into a “combat zone”. to do quests in a system very inspired by the excellent Stalker. He should make his way in a merciless war between two gangs, that of the Bozos (psychopathic clowns) and that of the Slaughterhouse (of the fascists). As of yet, no release date has been leaked for this content, but it could arrive in 2022.

Moreover, another big solo DLC is also in the boxes of the Polish studio, depending on the leak. However, this second expansion would only see the light of day if the first one is successful. If Cyberpunk 2077 has sold well despite the controversy, CD Projekt could fear a certain mistrust on the part of the players.
A patch, a cartoon, an extension… CD Projekt thinks big for his game. 2022 could mean for him a real rebirth. It is recalled that the title marketed in 2020 was absolutely not finished when it was released. While it was playable on PC and even rather pleasant to navigate (despite a legion of bugs), the PS4 and Xbox One versions were simply unworthy, even forcing the developer to apologize and grant the refund to those who requested it. .
Remember that CD Projekt had ambitious plans for its game. A multiplayer version was even announced before the release of the original title. However, this variation has not been talked about since, but it is not impossible that it will return to the front of the stage if Cyberpunk 2077 manages to become the game he dreamed of being from the beginning.
