The first DLC for CD Projekt RED’s troubled game Cyberpunk 2077 was released this morning. The Cyberpunk 2077 DLC Phantom Liberty will be made available for Stadia users, but not for owners of last-gen consoles, which is an intriguing turn of events.
The relationship between Cyberpunk 2077 and Stadia is noteworthy; the game may have once been used to demonstrate the viability of Google’s game streaming service for AAA titles. The fact that Stadia coincidentally supplied the least problematic version of 2020’s glitchiest game at launch proved that case to some extent. The CEO of CD Projekt RED nervously laughed when asked about Stadia sales figures, thus it’s unclear if Cyberpunk 2077 or Stadia made much of an impact.
Following the unveiling of the game’s initial DLC, it appears that Stadia’s special relationship with Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to extend into the following year. Phantom Liberty’s first teaser debuted today and features the main character V vowing allegiance to the New United States of America. The famous voice of Johnny Silverhand, played by Keanu Reeves, can be heard in the video’s final few seconds, indicating that the add-on will take place before the games’ endings.
Notably, after the release of Patch 1.6 today, Cyberpunk 2077 will stop providing updates for consoles from the previous generation, such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and the DLC will not be available on those systems either. The DLC will, however, be available for Google Stadia, putting the streaming platform ahead of those last-gen consoles, as the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty video confirms.
Phantom Liberty, the first piece of DLC for Cyberpunk 2077, is scheduled for release in 2023 on Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series consoles.
