The Small Detail You Missed In The Cyberpunk 2077 Launch Trailer

Cyberpunk 2077's history of delays may finally be a thing of the past. The much-anticipated game is due out tomorrow, and developer CD Projekt Red has released an official launch trailer to celebrate the milestone. The trailer looks cinematic and does a good job of creating anticipation for the game, but there's more to it than meets the eye: A hidden message at the end reveals some news about coming downloadable content.

The message can be found within a single frame of the trailer on a yellow background as the "pre-order" button comes up. The text includes a thank-you message to fans and expresses excitement that they're finally getting their hands on the game. "Launch day is always a mix of excitement and constant nerve wracking, and with this being the first title we've developed that isn't titled The Witcher, we'd be lying if we said we weren't anxious to see what you think once you've sunk your teeth into it," the message reads. "With this launch trailer, we're just about ready to flick the switch and see Cyberpunk 2077 go from ours and become yours."

The message reveals that the game's free DLC program is coming in early 2021, with "an assortment of free DLC packs" set to hit Night City featuring "a bunch of cool stuff that'll inject even more life into the world of the dark future." After that, the message notes, you can expect even more content to drop. 

"We've mentioned before expansions will be coming, and while we're not ready to talk specifics just yet, we will say that we've learned a lot from our work on both Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine," the message said, referencing The Witcher 3 add-ons. "Our planned expansions will take you even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077, offering substantial, story-driven content that'll give you tough choices to make through impactful narratives that you won't soon forget."

Previously, CD Projekt Red president Adam Kiciński had told investors in a September conference call that the post-launch content release plans would resemble and exceed that of the company's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The Witcher 3 had two story expansions and 16 DLC packs follow its release in 2015. CD Projekt Red also said it planned to reveal the Cyberpunk 2077 expansions before launch but later backtracked on that in light of the further delay of the game to its imminent Dec. 10 launch. In an investor call from November, Kiciński noted that "we decided to wait for the release to provide gamers with the game and then start talking about future projects." That appears to include the expansions as well as Cyberpunk 2077's coming multiplayer component. So, the little Easter egg of a message in the trailer is just giving us a tiny preview of what's to come.
