Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty DLC will release sometime between June and early July, claimed Polish leakers Rock and Borys during the latest episode of their podcast.
Rock and Borys have been a steady source for various rumors related to CDPR games (the developer of Cyberpunk 2077), and their leaks/predictions have mostly turned out to be true. In the latest podcast, Borys reported that his insider sources from CDPR games are very keen on him attending the upcoming Summer Game Fest, during which the new expansion pack for Cyberpunk 2077 is supposed to be released for journalists to try.

While speaking about the upcoming DLC for Cyberpunk 2077, Borys said,
“My theory the Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty DLC is that the premiere will be in June or early July.”
According to Borys’ personal sources from the studio, Phantom Liberty DLC’s release date has been set to June 2023, with many of them confirming from time to time that the development of this expansion is going extremely well. This would make sense, as the developer had already tweeted in April about the opportunity for press and gaming content creators to get their hands on this Phantom Liberty during the Summer Game Fest. The developer had also mentioned an opportunity for fans of Cyberpunk 2077 to try out this DLC after the Summer Game Fest.
ICYMI, we'll start talking about Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty this June!
At @summergamefest: Play Days, we'll have hands-on sessions for press and content creators. We're also planning plenty of hands-on opportunities for our community at a later date, so stay tuned! ☀️🎮

According to Borys, the delay in the upcoming DLC has been due to some console optimization issues. He added that the delay was also due to the unavailability of Idris Elba, who is going to make an appearance in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 DLC. Owing to Idris’s busy schedule, developers had to work around his timeline and shoot & record his cinematics.
Borys has it on good authority, having spoken to a lot of game’s developers, that this DLC will be a next level in the game. He says,
“It’s not a game ending, it’s building on the existing game. It’s a little different next level.”
