Phantom Liberty Director Will Lead Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel

Must read

Director of Cyberpunk 2077's Phantom Liberty expansion Gabe Amatangelo will also direct the full sequel from CD Projekt Red.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Amatangelo said he'll be moving onto the sequel once development on the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 expansion is complete. Given Phantom Liberty launches on September 26, this should be within the next three months or so.

Little else is known about the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, codenamed Orion at CD Projekt Red, but the developer promised it "will fully unleash the potential that this universe offers".

Development hadn't begun as of October 2022 as CD Projekt Red focused on building a whole new North American studio for the game, consisting of 350 to 500 developers between teams in Boston and Vancouver. With Amatangelo looking to move over when Phantom Liberty is done, however, development should be kicking off soon if it hasn't already.

Amatangelo spoke to IGN during our Summer of Gaming to outline what fans can expect in the expansion (and therefore, perhaps, what will be a focus in the sequel). Phantom Liberty is set to change several aspects of the base game too, even adding a new ending.

Vehicular combat, a Cyberpunk: Edgerunners inspired cyberpsychosis feature, and a clever nod to The Witcher are coming too, though at the cost of upping the game's PC requirements.

Ryan Dinsdale is an IGN freelance reporter. He'll talk about The Witcher all day.
