Cyberpunk 2077’s expansion will need to be beyond polished

It’s hard to untangle my feelings about Cyberpunk 2077 (opens in new tab) from the disaster of its launch. I’m lucky, I suppose, that I never tried to play it on last-gen consoles, but even on PC it was mired in issues and disappointments, from the plethora of game-breaking bugs to wonky systems like Night City’s law enforcement.

To be clear, I ended up having a grand old time holidaying in Night City. It’s a gargantuan RPG filled with compelling stories of crime and corruption, but that’s not its legacy. Phantom Liberty, then, is a chance for CD Projekt Red to rewrite it—but it’ll need to be something pretty special.
