Phantom Liberty and its 2.0 update put an end to Cyberpunk 2077 and its large updates. This is how Gabe Amatangelo,the director of the game, put it to PC Gamer: “2.0 and Phantom Liberty are the last big updates. We’ll do a little something more, but those are the last big ones.” The CD Projekt RED title thus ends its story, in a big way and with a very good taste in the mouth after one of the most complicated launches in memory. From now on, all that will come will be corrections and fixes, but the studio’s big focus is on a sequel.
“Then it’s Cyberpunk 2. Or ‘Orion,’ I should say, whatever we end up naming it,” says Amatangelo. A Cyberpunk sequel is already on the way, where will it take us? Either it’ll happen after the events of this game, or it might be a kind of prequel that takes place at some point during the time-period of the role-playing game created by Mike Pondsmith, known as “the time of the Red”.
Cyberpunk 2077, a story of redemption
The path has been hard for a game that now is considered by many as a masterpiece. With a complicated and, for many, embarrassing beginning, you could already glimpse the enormous potential that CD Projekt RED’s work had, and this was the case with Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, completing its path of redemption. In Meristation’s review of Phantom Liberty “we find a fantastic expansion, full of content and with a story that is on par with the great works of the studio. It is a great adventure of espionage and fragile loyalties, an exquisite complement to the base game that is extremely worth discovering. “A must for fans and those who have not yet made the leap into the cyberpunk epic from the creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.”
