“Phantom Liberty” is set to launch in 2023 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC and Stadia

Poland’s biggest video game maker, CD Projekt, tapped Hollywood star Keanu Reeves to announce the title of its first expansion to a flagship Cyberpunk 2077 game on Tuesday.

Expansion titled ‘Phantom Liberty’ is set to release next year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, PC and Stadia, the company said during a stream on video game streaming platform Twitch.

Reeves, who plays rebellious rockerboy Johnny Silverhand in the game, appeared during the stream and will return in the expansion, with new characters, CD Projekt said.

CD Projekt releases major big budget games every four to five years and in between these titles it often releases expansions to the games. The company did not mention a specific release date.

The company also said it’s launched patch 1.6 for Cyberpunk, which will be the last major update available for older-gen consoles.

Delayed three times, Cyberpunk was one of the most anticipated games of 2020, but after a first full of bugs, it was sidelined from Sony’s PlayStation Store for six months.

In April, the company said it sold over 18 million copies of the game. –
