Does Cyberpunk 2077 Have New Game Plus?

New Game Plus Release Date Likely Delayed

On a Twitter thread for a Cyberpunk 2077 update live stream dated September 6, 2022, Senior Community Manager Amelia Kolat said that the presentation wouldn't include New Game Plus.

This was as players awaited the feature to be included in one of the game's patches. Looking at the content of Patch 1.6, it does not have New Game Plus included.

As of November 2022, no new mentions of New Game Plus has been made by CD Projekt Red employees or in the game studio's social media accounts.

CDPR Says New Game Plus is an Incredibly Complex Feature

Further down in the same Twitter thread, Cyberpunk 2077 lead level designer Miles Tost called New Game Plus an "incredibly complex feature to make."

He further explained that having advanced cyberware early in the game could break progression, along with other aspects of the game CDPR needed to check.

But Tost added that the game studio is looking into the possibility of adding the feature sometime in the future, with the caveat that the studio was making "no promises."

Lets You Play the Story Again With All Your Gear

"New Game Plus" is a feature common in many Role-Playing Games, where you can play through the story again with all your powerful gear.

However, CD Projekt Red has explained that there are sequences where V is not supposed to have any advanced gear yet, such as when they go to Viktor for their first grip cyberware. What would happen if they went to the ripperdoc with Gorilla Arms, or Kiroshi Mk. 3 optical implants?

This scene may have to be reworked to have Vik comment on your new cybernetics, or offer an alternative cyberware to install on V instead. This also goes for other scenes in the early game.
