In was also announced that all “updates, improvements and free DLC” for Cyberpunk 2077 too, had been pushed back to 2022, as well.
Adam Kiciński, CD Projekt Red president and joint CEO, in a statement on November 29, 2021, revealed that, “We are hard at work on the next-gen version of Cyberpunk, scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2022, alongside another major update for all platforms”.

CD Projekt Red Reveal More Information About Upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 Update
It is interesting to note here that according to the statement released, despite the dismal and the publicized troubles that Cyberpunk 2077 has faced since its release, and with no urgency on CD Projekt Red’s end to address them, the company’s quarterly revenues have gone up by 40% year over year. It reached 144 million PLN (approx. $ 34.7 million).
The year over year profits were, however, lower, during this same period, owing mainly to “expenses related to updating Cyberpunk and exploratory work on new projects”. This spike in the revenue remains interesting because despite Cyberpunk 2077 being riddled with issues, interest in the title remains high. And ever since the title went on sale at a 50% slashed price, on the Steam Autumn Sale, the game saw a significant rise in the number of positive user reviews.
