CD Projekt Red, the creators of The Witcher, had planned an ambitious DLC for Cyberpunk 2077 set on the Moon. This project, ultimately canceled, would have offered a new dimension to the game.

CD Projekt Red, the creators of the famous game The Witcher, had planned very ambitious downloadable content for Cyberpunk 2077. This expansion was to take place on the Moon and bring a whole new dimension to the game. After a rocky launch in December 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 received a lot of criticism due to its technical issues. However, thanks to successive updates, the game has seen a renaissance. Despite this improvement, some projects, like this lunar DLC, were abandoned.

The Moon in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe

Of the recent leaks revealed that CD Projekt Red was working on an expansion that would have allowed players to explore lunar colonies. Indeed, in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe, the Moon has been colonized, with established cities and a population of around 58,000 people. It serves as a strategic point for the corporations that dominate the Earth. Concept images showed settings and structures on the Moon. Initially, the idea was to integrate these colonies into the main game, but the scale of the project led to this integration being postponed to a future DLC. However, the focus ultimately shifted to developing the well-received “Phantom Liberty” expansion, releasing in late 2023. This strategic choice led to the definitive cancellation of the lunar DLC

An unrealized lunar ambition

The launch of Cyberpunk 2077 was very poorly received due to numerous technical issues, sparking a wave of criticism. However, the release of the anime “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners” reignited interest in the game. The series, set in the same universe, captivated fans, especially with its plot where the Moon is a valuable objective. The series highlights the importance of the Moon, reflecting the characters’ aspirations to achieve it. Coupled with the numerous updates, this allowed CD Projekt Red to restore the image of their title, making this revival a real success.

Despite the cancellation of the lunar DLC, interest in space exploration in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe is not completely extinguished. CD Projekt Red has stated that no further expansions will be developed for Cyberpunk 2077 after “Phantom Liberty”, marking the end of its active support. However, fans can hope that these unrealized concepts find their way into the game’s sequel, tentatively named “Project Orion.” This new project could potentially offer an opportunity for the community to explore environments like the stars, although this remains speculative and still far from any concrete realization
