CDPR CEO Adam Kiciński, on the topic of a Cyberpunk 2077 GotY Edition, confirmed that: "It's the natural order of things - it was the same with The Witcher, which after both expansions was finally released as a Game of the Year Edition and has been on the market that way ever since. The same can be expected in this case. It's quite obvious."

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty: Release Date Window & Platforms
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty will be released sometime in 2023. As of this writing, no concrete release window is available.
Surprisingly, the first Cyberpunk 2077 expansion will be released only on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. Yes, you read that write. Phantom Liberty won't be coming to last-gen consoles - PS4 and Xbox One.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty - Story & Characters
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty's teaser trailer begins with the main character V reciting an oath and pledging alliance to the New United States of America.
As of this writing, we don't know what the plot will be about, though CDPR has confirmed that it will take place in an entirely new district within Night City and will feature a new cast of characters.
Speaking of characters, Keanu Reeves' eccentric rockstar Johnny Silverhand will also be returning to Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty price
CD Projekt Red has yet to reveal the price of the Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty expansion, but if the expansion prices of the studio's previous games are any indication, you can expect a decent bargain.
The Witcher 3's Blood and Wine expansion cost $19.99, whereas the Heart of Stone expansion cost $9.99.
While we don't know the scope of the Phantom Liberty expansion, we do know that it won't be taking place in an entirely new city or region, as was the case with the Blood and Wine expansion.
As such, you should probably not expect this one to cost $19.99 though we wouldn't want you to hold your breath on that.
And that's everything you need to know about Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty expansion.
