Cyberpunk 2077 Developer Addresses Huge New Next-Gen Leak

A new Cyberpunk 2077 DLC leak has been making the rounds for revealing the future of the Google Stadia, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X game. However, it sounds like fans of the open-world RPG should take the leak with a grain of salt as it has — more or less — been shut down by a CD Projekt Red developer.

According to the leak, the Cyberpunk 2077 next-gen patch — patch 1.5 — will serve as a soft relaunch of the game under the name Cyberpunk 2077: Samurai Edition. To this end, it’s claimed that CD Projekt Red will unveil the new version of the game in February in a big livestream that will also reveal the first expansion and the Netflix anime.

The leak then goes on to claim the patch will add barbershops, improve AI, give players a garage, implement a transmog system, rebalance the loot system, and provide a new UI. Adding to this, it’s claimed free DLC will also be released with four new weapons, new game plus, apartment customization, and new gigs.

It’s also claimed there will be a wide range of smaller improvements, such as Judy and Panam sending players far more text messages over the course of the game in order to make things more realistic.

There’s quite a bit more about the leak, including word of the game’s first expansion, which takes place in Pacifica and is said to be “quite huge” and Gwent-like mini-game.

Now, some of this information has been pulled from the game’s files, while other bits have been unsubstantiated. That said, taking to Twitter, a developer on the game shot down the leak as a whole, though not in the most definitive fashion.

This thing does not add up. Sorry, Paul.
