Does Cyberpunk 2077 Have New Game Plus?

New Game Plus mode, in which players can restart a completed game while carrying over things from the previous playthrough, is a common feature for many AAA games. For some players, it's a must-have feature. It's a great way to up a game's replay value, but it's also just fun to blow through the game with a maxed-out character and fully upgraded gear. Cyberpunk 2077 launched on Dec. 10, 2020, and its fair to wonder whether it also includes New Game Plus.


Cyberpunk 2077 players would get a lot of mileage out of a New Game Plus mode, since the futuristic first-person shooter is all about player choice, all the way through to its multiple endings. Most missions can be completed in several different ways, and replaying them can give an entirely new experience. For example, New Game Plus might let V talk their way out of a tense gang standoff without firing a shot. Furthermore, choices have consequences, and certain decisions can make some content inaccessible.

Here's everything CD Projekt Red has said about Cyberpunk 2077's New Game Plus mode.

New Game Plus may be on the way

As of now, Cyberpunk 2077 does not offer a New Game Plus feature, but players have good reason to expect one. In an interview with the Polish magazine PSX Extreme, (translated by Redditor u/Arise92), CD Projekt Red said it was "working on" New Game Plus.


It's unclear exactly what Cyberpunk 2077's New Game Plus would look like, however. While a player hypothetically could restart the game with their leveled-up character as-is, they most likely would not be able to completely redesign their character. Currently, players can re-spec their character's Perk points for a hefty fee, but re-speccing Attribute points is impossible. Also, an imported V would still be aligned with one of the game's three life paths. In order to fully experience all the game has to offer, starting from scratch is probably the best option.

CD Projekt Red hasn't shared a timeline for New Game Plus. Its previous blockbuster release, The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, offered New Game Plus mode three months after it launched in 2015. But since Cyberpunk 2077 has had such a rocky debut, New Game Plus is probably less of an early priority than fixing the game's many performance and gameplay issues.
