Earlier this week the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit uncovered several names from the Epic Games Store initially believed to be the names of upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 content.In an email to IGN a CD Projekt representative confirmed that these names “are not DLCs for Cyberpunk 2077.” This begs the question, what are they?

In a thread on the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit, user u/PricklyAssassin shared images of a now-gone Add-on page for Cyberpunk 2077 in the Epic Games Store with a series of blank listings for what looks like Cyberpunk 2077 content. This add-on page apparently appeared on the Epic Games Store shortly after this week’s 1.2 patch but has since been removed.The screenshots showed the following listings:

  • Ripperdocs Expansion
  • Body Shops Expansion
  • Fashion Forward Expansion
  • Gangs of Night CIty
  • Body of Chrome
  • Rides of the Dark Future
  • The Relic
  • Neck Deep
  • Night City Expansion
  • Expansion Pass

Given CD Projekt’s confirmation that these aren’t names for upcoming DLC, this leads to a couple of different possibilities. The most likely being that these aren’t the final names for Cyberpunk 2077’s upcoming add-on content.

The generic names like “Ripperdocs Expansion” and “Body Shops Expansion” seem to indicate that whatever CD Projekt Red has in store for Cyberpunk 2077’s upcoming DLC aren’t finalized yet. Even more specific titles like “Rides of the Dark Future” could be code names or placeholders before official titles are chosen.

CD Projekt confirmed in its 2021 roadmap that aside from patches and a next-gen update, there are free DLCs in the works for Cyberpunk 2077. Before launch CD Projekt confirmed Cyberpunk would have a similar post-launch structure as The Witcher 3 with a mix of free, smaller DLCs and much larger paid expansions sold separately.

The company reaffirmed the plan to release free DLC and paid expansions during their strategy update yesterday where the company also announced it would change its marketing strategy to prevent misleading customers.

That said there was some confusion yesterday regarding comments from CDPR president Adam Kiciński who said plans for Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer mode are being reconsidered. Despite promising clearer marketing going forward, Kiciński’s comments only created further confusion.

Since CD Projekt won’t confirm what exactly these titles from the Epic Games Store are referring to, it remains speculation. All we know for sure is that Cyberpunk 2077 will get free DLC sometime this year, and we’ll likely hear more about it closer to launch.
