Cyberpunk 2077 - Hidden message from the launch trailer

In a secret message that was found in the lastest launch trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red have shared some interesting new details about the game's post-launch content updates.

Yesterday, CD Projekt Red released a final trailer for their blockbuster Cyberpunk 2077, which is now one day away from the official release. In the trailer, the devs included a hidden message where they thank the fans for their support but also revealed some interesting new details about the game's post-launch plans.

CD Projekt Red say they are not quite ready to talk specifically about the post-launch DLC but they confirm free content is coming sometime in early 2021. They say Cyberpunk 2077's expansions will take players even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077 with more story-driven content and impactful narratives. 

Here's the part from the message where CD Projekt Red mentioned the DLCs:

We've mentioned before that expansions will be coming, and while we're not ready to talk specifics just yet, we will say that we've learned a lot from our work on both Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine. Our planned expansions will take you even deeper into the world of Cyberpunk 2077 offering substantial, story-driven content that'll give you tough choices to make through impactful narratives that you won't soon forget.

But before we get there, we'll first be kicking off our free DLC program in early 2021. Just like with The Witcher 3, expect an assortment of free DLC packs to begin hitting Night City, dropping a bunch of cool stuff that'll inject even more life into the world of the dark future. We hope you're looking forward to them!

As you can see, the publisher plan to introduce a lot of free stuff before they drop their major paid expansions. This is similar to how they delivered post-launch content in The Witcher 3, which received several free content updates before the first expansion Hearts of Stone arrived.

You may remember that CD Projekt Red promised to talk about the expansions before the game's launch but it seems the delays have disrupted those plans. Still, at least we now know when to expect the first content updates.
