Cyberpunk 2077: Leaks Reveal Canceled Moon DLC

Published

on

New Cyberpunk 2077 leaks have revealed the cancellation of an expansion that was supposed to take place on the Moon.

Developer CD Projekt Red continued to work on Cyberpunk 2077 for years after its rocky launch, and after a decade of work, the game is now complete.

The end result of the company’s development resulted in a massive update to the game, as well as the Phantom Liberty DLC expansion which added a whole new story, city, and quests to the game.

Although development on Cyberpunk 2077 is officially complete, it appears that much of the content has been abandoned, if recent leaks are to be believed.

Thanks to files and images appearing on social media, we can get a glimpse of the size and scope of the canceled DLC.

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty

Among the leaks is a draft of the DLC map of the Moon, which would have covered around six square kilometers. Although smaller than the 24 square kilometers of Night City, it would have been a sizable map to explore.

Additionally, fans can see preliminary assets for moon bases, lunar rovers, and even parts of the Moon itself.

In Cyberpunk 2077’s narrative, information about the Moon appears throughout the main game, the Phantom Liberty DLC, and expanded universe material.

For those who may not know, Cyberpunk 2077’s Moon was colonized in 1997 due to Earth’s declining ecosystem. Throughout the game, the player character, V, can learn about the Lunar Colony, as well as the Crystal Palace orbital space station between Earth and the Moon.

Additionally, the Moon is a key part of the Cyberpunk Edgerunners anime and plays a major role in some of Phantom Liberty’s endings.

Unfortunately for those who were eager to explore the Moon in Cyberpunk 2077, that won’t be possible. Development of the game has ceased and therefore this content will never see the light of day.

The best fans can hope for is to imagine what could have been possible thanks to these leaks, or to hope that this location makes an appearance in a sequel.
