Players have been hoping for a Cyberpunk 2077 New Game Plus mode since well before the game was in their hands, and with CD Projekt Red's latest now out in the wild, demand for a follow-up playthrough has spiked considerably. The prospect of ripping through Night City a second time with a whole save file's worth of upgrades in hand is especially enticing given how those upgrades can enhance your experience through added details and opportunities.

CD Projekt has publicly teased the idea of a Cyberpunk 2077 New Game Plus before, and according to a 2019 feature from Polish Magazine PSX Extreme (translated on Reddit), the mode was being "worked on." This feature is fairly dated at this point, but CD Projekt has never dismissed the possibility of New Game Plus. That said, given the launch troubles that prompted refund offers and a formal apology from the studio, CD Projekt will likely be prioritizing other updates for the next few months.

One thing's for sure: there's no Cyberpunk 2077 New Game Plus Mode just yet. There's still hope, however, given that The Witcher 3 didn't get New Game Plus until a ways after launch as part of a free DLC. Cyberpunk could do the same, but that's pretty much the only direction we have for now. 

Even without New Game Plus, there are plenty of reasons to replay Cyberpunk 2077 or keep scouring Night City after you clear the main story. The web of Cyberpunk 2077 romance options runs deep, and the Cyberpunk 2077 respec system lets you experiment with entirely new builds (for a price).

Speaking of Cyberpunk updates still to come: here's everything we now about Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer, which is expected to launch a few years from now.
