CD Projekt Red will release more Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty info in June 2023

CD Projekt Red plans to release more information for Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, the game's first major DLC expansion, this June. The company has been mum on new information about the DLC since it released the game's second teaser trailer in December 2022. It delivered the announcement via the official Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account.

Exact details about what players will actually do in Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty are scarce. That said, CD Projekt Red bills the DLC as a "spy-thriller expansion" that is set in an all-new district of Night City. That district is likely to be "Dogtown", a location referred to in the teaser. Players, presumably as V, will work with Johnny Silverhand, again played by John Wick actor Keanu Reeves. 

The setup for Phantom Liberty appears to involve working for or under the authority of the New United States of America. The expansion's second trailer also confirmed that Luther and The Suicide Squad star Idris Elba will appear in the game. There he'll be known as Solomon Reed, an agent of the FIA, an NUSA-affiliated organization of some kind.

In the Cyberpunk 2077 setting the "old" USA collapsed in the late 1990s, and was eventually suborned by megacorporations, particularly the Washington, D.C.-based Militech. Under Militech influence, the former US government reconstituted as the New United States and began a war to reclaim dominion over the "Free States" that sprung up in the wake of the federal government's collapse. Night City, the setting of Cyberpunk 2077, is an autonomous city-state located in Northern California, close to the border of Southern California, a state that came under NUSA control during the war. Several subplots in the base Cyberpunk 2077 game also refer to the Militech-backed NUSA gearing up to resume open conflict with Arasaka, the megacorp that heavily influences affairs within Night City and serves as the primary antagonist for much of 2077's main plotline.
