Elsewhere, the Cyberpunk 2077 expansion got detailed and is called “Phantom Liberty”, and will be coming to PS5, Xbox Series S|X, and PC in 2023 — yes that’s right, no PS4 or Xbox One version of that expansion is happening. Details have also been revealed about Cyberpunk 2077’s latest update, the Edgerunners Update — also known as Patch 1.6 — which introduces equippable items from the anime to the game.
