CD Projekt Red’s work on Cyberpunk 2077 is far from done. The game still has a post-launch content plan, and someone needs to helm the ship while expansions are developed. However, following the game’s rocky launch it seems that CD Projekt Red is shaking up Cyberpunk 2077‘s development team. According to a report from gamesindustry.biz, the developer is promoting Gabriel Amatangelo to be the new game director for Cyberpunk 2077.
Amatangelo originally joined the Cyberpunk 2077 team in January 2020 as a creative director. His prior work experience includes being the lead designer on expansions for Star Wars: The Old Republic and design director for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Amatangelo’s new position will have him oversee the development of Cyberpunk 2077‘s post-launch expansions.
Former Cyberpunk 2077 game director Adam Badowski is being moved into a different leadership position in CD Projekt Red. Instead of continuing to oversee development for Cyberpunk 2077, he will help lead the studio’s transition into its new RED 2.0 content plan.
When will we see post-launch expansions for Cyberpunk 2077?
After its launch, CD Projekt Red has been hard at work improving, or rather, fixing, Cyberpunk 2077. The developer has released multiple patches for the game, with each squashing bugs, improving its systems, and making the game more stable in general. The last hotfix for Cyberpunk 2077 made its way out at the end of April, and it’s not clear if CD Projekt Red is working on more patches for the game. However, it’s likely we’ll see many more patches to come. The game is far from optimal, even after all these months.
As for post-launch content for Cyberpunk 2077, it’s hard to say when we’ll see any. CD Projekt Red has previously stated that it will take a similar approach to Cyberpunk 2077 as it did with The Witcher 3. The game will have some smaller free updates as well as larger, paid DLCs. CD Projekt Red has also kept its lips shut on what Cyberpunk 2077‘s post-launch expansions will be.
