Cyberpunk 2077’s next big update, Update 2.0, will release next week on September 21st exclusively for Xbox Series X|S players. The massive free update will overhaul many of the core gameplay systems and add new content right before the Phantom Liberty paid expansion launches on September 26th.
Update 2.0 Release Date and Features
Update 2.0 for Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on September 21st for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC. The free update will include a complete redesign of the skill trees, new dynamic vehicle combat, improved enemy AI, an overhauled police system, changes to cyberware, and much more.
Specific new features Xbox players can expect in Update 2.0 include new dynamic events throughout Night City, enhanced gunplay and cover mechanics, revamped driving and vehicle mechanics, additional radio stations, and new character builds to experiment with. The update lays the foundation for the Phantom Liberty expansion coming to Xbox just 5 days later on September 26th.
Implications for Xbox Players
The release of Update 2.0 next week has major implications for Xbox players. Xbox Series X|S players will gain access to the overhaul five days before the Phantom Liberty expansion arrives. The update will modernize core gameplay systems and mechanics to make Cyberpunk 2077 feel like a new experience.
Microsoft has partnered closely with developer CD Projekt Red on Cyberpunk 2077’s redemption arc and Xbox features like Smart Delivery. Update 2.0 and the Phantom Liberty expansion mark the next chapter in that story after Cyberpunk’s infamous rocky launch.
Overall, the massive free update shows CD Projekt Red’s commitment to improving Cyberpunk 2077 on Xbox platforms. The overhauled systems, new content, and technical improvements should make Night City feel fresh again for Xbox players when Update 2.0 finally hits next week.
