The first major downloadable content for Cyberpunk 2077, Phantom Liberty, will be released in 2023, according to developer CD Projekt Red, who released the add-ons' first teaser trailer. Phantom Liberty is described as a new spy-thriller expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 that will be set in a new district of Night City.

The first trailer for Phantom Liberty does not include a lot of information. Player character V swears to faithfully serve the New United States of America, while Johnny Silverhand's voice cautions her that she should do something bad. Actor Keanu Reeves confirmed separately in a Night City Wire livestream presentation that hell would return to voice Johnny in the expansion.

Phantom City will be available for Google Stadia, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X versions of Cyberpunk 2077, but not, apparently, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. The game's latest 1.6 patch, known as the Edgerunners Update, will be the final update for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077.

The Edgerunners Update is named for the Netflix animated series that will be released next week. The update also includes new items from the anime including a jacket worn by David Martinez, the anime's protagonist, and a playable Roach Race minigame arcade cabinet.

The first expansion of Cyberpunk 2077 was initially released in December 2020, but the game was in a notoriously slow state. CD Projekt Red spent the majority of the following year bug-squashing and polishing the game, which ultimately delayed the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game and its first expansion. CD Projekt confirmed in April that the first expansion of Cyberpunk 2077 would be released in 2023.
