Will the game see the arrival of a single DLC?

The steam development team would have indirectly confirmed this fact

The troubled life of Cyberpunk 2077 it is not over yet, but it could be destined to end much sooner than the fans of the title believe, who until now have been waiting patiently for the arrival of the promised future DLC, which has been talked about in the past along with another feature which seems to want to wait a very long time, the multiplayer sector. Well there is still no news about the multiplayer mode, but about the DLC the CEO of CD Projekt RED, Adam Kicinskito provide an indirect clue that may be disappointing.

For Cyberpunk 2077 we have gone from talking about DLC in the plural, to the use of a disappointing singular:

During a question and answer session with investors, Kicinski talked about how future games will be developed based on theUnreal Engine, and therefore abandoning the proprietary engine of the company. He also hinted that the team is making tremendous progress in developing the new one The Witcherwhich will be built with Unreal Engine 5. In the speech he specified that the last work that will be done using the Red Engine will be, in fact, the expansion of Cyberpunk 2077 (singular).

“The Cyberpunk expansion will be the last Red Engine-based project. Any other project will be carried out with the Unreal Engine “he told investors. This would confirm one of the fears of the game community, which is that the expansion that has recently begun to talk and see something will be the first and also the last to affect the unfortunate game. His words, indirectly, also lead me to fear that the multiplayer sector has also been set aside, since unless it is already ready it would be a second project in progress with the Red Engine.

It may also be that, given the weak numbers that the game is recording today, it was decided not to waste more money on products that would have enjoyed a low sales potential to invest more in more promising projects (although sales are returning to grow with the debut of the next-gen versions), like the next one The Witcher which will be a staple title for CD Projekt RED: they will return to the franchise that consecrated the Polish development studio as one of the most promising before the collapse caused, in fact, by Cyberpunk 2077.

If the game is a success we can talk about the disaster of Night City like a very bad hiccup, if on the contrary the game were to disappoint the enormous hype that will certainly surround such a project, then the studio could lose its credibility entirely. A very important bet.
