“Cyberpunk 2077″‘s first plot expansion “Shadows of the Past” will be launched in 2023. According to the latest official news from CDPR, the company will begin sharing news about the new expansion in June.
According to CDPR’s official statement, “Shadows of the Past” is a new espionage thriller DLC for the game, and the story is set in a new area of Night City. In addition to our familiar Keanu Reeves continuing to play Johnny Silverhand, movie star Idris Elba will also join the expansion, playing Solomon Reed, a secret agent working for the new United States of America.
“Cyberpunk 2077” is one of the most controversial games in the gaming world to date, with so many problems at launch that it was pulled from the PlayStation Store shortly after launch. CD Projekt issued refunds to players and was heavily criticized. However, with the popularity of the adapted animation “Cyberpunk: Edge Walker” and the continuous optimization of the game itself, sales and word-of-mouth have rebounded.
CD Projekt is currently planning to launch a number of new games, including a sequel to “Cyberpunk 2077” code-named Orion, which is expected to provide online multiplayer features, as well as a remake of the original “Witcher” game using Unreal Engine 5. There’s a new The Witcher trilogy also in the works.
