A new leak about Cyberpunk 2077 makes fans sad because they might have met a popular character from the anime

A new leak reveals where a canceled expansion to Cyberpunk 2077 would have taken place and makes fans sad.

What kind of leak is this? In 2021, there was a cyberattack on CDPR in which the company’s data was stolen by hackers. At the time, it was said that the attackers were in possession of complete copies of the performance servers of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 and that they wanted to publish the source code of the games if CDPR did not respond to certain demands.

Years later, on June 14, 2024, some files were leaked on 4chan that allegedly came from this hack.

What does the leak show? The leak contains some files and concept drawings for a DLC that Cyberpunk 2077 was supposed to get, but was then canceled. Instead, CDPR decided to fundamentally rework the role-playing game after its much-criticized release state and only release a single expansion: Phantom Liberty.

The leaked files indicate that the canceled second expansion would have taken place on the moon. With the release of the DLC, players would have received a map expansion.

Warning, spoilers: We will discuss specific content from the anime “Cyberpunk: Edgerunners” in the following paragraphs. If you haven’t seen the anime yet and don’t want to be spoiled, you should stop reading now.

Why are players sad now? Of course, as a fan of a game, you are never happy when a DLC is canceled. But players are especially sad in this case because the moon is important in Cyberpunk’s lore and also plays a central role in the anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.

Players believe they could have met Lucy from Cyberpunk: Edgerunners on the moon in the DLC. User IcePopsicleDragon writes on Reddit: “I have to cry,” while user redstar46 adds: “Damn it, uncancle it (the DLC), please, for heaven’s sake.”

Why should Lucy be on the moon? In Edgerunners we follow the protagonist David Martinez and experience his development from a normal teenager into a dangerous cyberpsycho. Very early in the story, David meets the netrunner Lucy, who shortly afterwards shows him a braindance from the moon. A few episodes later, the two are a couple.

Lucy’s big dream is to leave Night City one day and live on the moon. After David is killed in a fight with Adam Smasher and Lucy is taken away by Falco with 2.5 million Eddies, she makes this dream come true. Lucy travels to the moon, visits the places they looked at together in the brain dance and the anime ends.

Cyberpunk 2077 takes place after the events of the anime, so it is quite possible that Lucy could have been found on the moon – if the DLC had been released. Since update 2.0, however, you can find other references to the anime in the game: Cyberpunk 2077: After update 2.0 you can find a sad Easter egg for the Edgerunners anime
