In December 2022, the most recent teaser for the Phantom Liberty expansion was revealed, showcasing Idris Elba in a starring role in the upcoming DLC for the ever-improving Cyberpunk 2077. Now, in a claim made on the Polish show, ‘Rock i Borys Podcast’, it has been suggested that the expansion will be released in June 2023.

Up until now, there has been absolutely no specific mention of when Phantom Liberty will be released. In a massive update posted in 2022, CD Projekt revealed the state of play for its entire firm, and in this update, it was stated that Phantom Liberty was in ‘the final stages of development’, and it seemed to also highlight that it’d be released in ‘2023’.

Could we be mere weeks away from the first and last Cyberpunk 2077 expansion?

Phantom Liberty is Coming

On the ‘Rock and Boris Podcast’ (thanks to TwistedVoxel for the report), it was claimed that Phantom Liberty could be released as early as June 8th. While talking about the future of the game, ‘Boris’ explained that he’s been invited to attend the Summer Games Fest by CDPR themselves and that his sources internal to the company have corroborated the supposed release date for Phantom Liberty.

Here is that teaser trailer we just mentioned:

By all accounts, Cyberpunk’s Phantom Liberty expansion has been masterfully created. It’s no big secret that Cyberpunk itself suffered immeasurably when it was released in 2020. It was plagued by a plethora of bugs, glitches, and performance issues, and it faced such bad press that lawsuits surfaced.

Now, it has been updated to a point where it’s certainly playable, and not only that, it’s entertaining, exciting, and innovative. There are high expectations for Phantom Liberty, which will be the first and only expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, and then per CDPR’s roadmap, we’ll all move on to the sequel that’s in development.

Let’s wait with bated breath to see if Phantom Liberty gets a confirmed release date during the Summer Games Fest.
