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

The first trailer for Phantom Liberty does not include much information. Player character V swears to faithfully serve the New United States of America, while Johnny Silverhand admonishes her that this was a bad idea. Actor Keanu Reeves confirmed separately in a Night City Wire livestream presentation that hell would reprise his role as 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 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 coming next week. The update also includes equippable items from the anime to Cyberpunk 2077, including a jacket worn by David Martinez, the anime's protagonist, and a playable Roach Race minigame arcade cabinet.

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