CD Projekt says Epic Games Store leaks aren't Cyberpunk 2077 expansions

Update: CD Projekt Red says the Cyberpunk 2077 data leaked from the Epic Games Store doesn't reveal the names of upcoming DLC or expansion packs.

When we first got word of the leaks, which include references to four different "expansions," it seemed obvious that we'd learned the names of future Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. But in a statement to IGN, CD Projekt confirms that the leaks "are not DLCs for Cyberpunk 2077."

While it's clear now that the list of names, which you'll find in the below report, doesn't give away the final names of upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 add-ons, it's likely that they're codenames or placeholders for the official titles. For that reason, you might be able to extrapolate from the leaks what might be coming in Cyberpunk 2077's unannounced roadmap.

For example, the "Fashion Forward Expansion" could be referring to in-game wearables, whereas the "Body Shop Expansion" could be hinting at the addition of repair shops for your car.

Original story:

Cyberpunk 2077’s DLC plans have leaked thanks to information pulled from the Epic Games Store.

The information was reportedly pulled from the development end of the Epic Games Store by Reddit user PricklyAssassin, and it looks like there is plenty of Cyberpunk 2077 DLC on the horizon if this leak is accurate. The post highlights nine different DLC packs and links to screenshots of the Epic Game Store development end which clearly show the upcoming DLC packs, along with an expansion pass that will contain two paid DLCs.

That’s not the new information here, we knew that Cyberpunk 2077 was getting a load of free DLC. What is new is that we now know the names of the nine free DLC packs that are coming, which are:

  • Rippderdocs Expansion
  • Body Shops Expansion
  • Fashion Forward Expansion
  • Gangs of Night City
  • Body of Chrome
  • Rides of the Dark Future
  • The Relic
  • Neck Deep
  • Night City Expansion

PricklyAssassin goes on to give their thoughts on what each of these DLC packs might contain, but these are just speculations based on the titles and not based on any official information from CDPR. With that said, some of the titles do seem fairly self explanatory. The Rippderdocs Expansion will likely add new modding capabilities, while the Fashion Forward Expansion will probably add new outfits to the game. Other titles are more vague, such as The Relic. This refers to the chip containing Johnny Silverhand’s engram, but how that will bear out in the DLC is anyone’s guess.

We can also see placeholder prices for the two paid DLC packs, and the expansion pack that will contain both of these. Each DLC pack is currently set for $9.99 each, while the expansion pass will be $14.99. These prices may end up changing before launch though, and we still have no idea what will be in these packs, or how far off they are. Much of the Cyberpunk 2077 development team seems to still be dedicated to patches and bug fixes at the moment, and this, combined with the pandemic, could have easily led to delays in the DLC pipeline.

CDPR has made major strides towards fixing the bugs and issues with Cyberpunk 2077 in the past three months, with the recent Patch 1.2 fixing over 500 issues alone. In fact, this information was actually pulled from the Epic Games Store not long after the new patch went live, as PricklyAssassin noticed that CDPR had made some changes to the page.
