If you are eagerly awaiting the first expansion pack for CD Projekt RED’s maligned Cyberpunk 2077 game then you may want to start avoiding the internet until next year as every line of dialogue has leaked.
It seems CD Projekt RED themselves messed up and included the subtitles for all the dialogue in a recent patch. The lang_txt file was then easily extracted by dataminers and posted on Reddit and then subsequently on Mediafire. Both files have now been removed but no doubt there and hundreds of copies of the file in various other places on the internet. Obviously we will not be posting any details here.
In their latest financial call, CD Projekt Red has stated that the first DLC expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 will arrive in 2023. More details can be expected to come later this year, and the expansion will feature a major new storyline to follow.
CD Projekt Red recently announced a new partnership with Epic Games to jump to Unreal Engine 5 for the next The Witcher game. This will see the company give up on their internally created RED Engine, though promises to be a deep technical partnership that will help UE5 better cater to open world games. CD Projekt RED has confirmed that its new Witcher game is now in pre-production. This update comes via the Polish developer’s latest blog, in which they look back at the year so far.
In other The Witcher news, CDPR has had to delay the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S enhanced versions of The Witcher 3. They are taking development of the enhancements in-house, having previously outsourced its development to Saber Interactive. Saber’s main studio is in Russia, so while technically very competent and capable of pulling off some fantastic ports and game enhancements, CDPR’s cutting of ties with Russia through the now 50-day way in Ukraine has forced them to make this change.
