One of the most asked questions about Cyberpunk 2077, other than the release date, is whether the game will support mods. CD Projekt Red have been giving vague answers in the past but one is definitive - it will not have them at launch.

The Witcher 3 may not have had mods as extensive as Fallout or The Elder Scroll series but the community did develop a fair amount of highly enjoyable mods. Given that Cyberpunk 2077 will be another RPG in a vast open world, the fans kept asking whether this game will support mods as well.

Marcin Momot, CD Projekt Red's global community lead, responded in one such thread where players were voting whether they would like mod support in Cyberpunk 2077 or not. His answer was rather definitive, for the early years of Cyberpunk at least - the game will not initially have mods.

According to Momot, CD Projekt Red are currently focusing on game development leading up to release. Mod support might still come in the future but the current goals at the studio are clear - get the game ready for release.

While the news is not exactly good for the fan base, they didn't complain about it since this is probably the first definitive answer we got regarding this topic. 

Interestingly enough, the vast majority voted "yes" in the poll, stating that they do want mod support with many quoting Skyrim, which was originally released in 2011 but still has quite a few players daily , in large part thanks to massive mod support that keeps things fresh in an eight-year-old game.

Cyberpunk 2077 does not have a release date yet but it is expected CD Projekt Red will reveal it during E3 2019 along with the new gameplay footage. We do know that Collector's Edition is already being packed from the Q1 2019 earnings report.

Considering the sheer amount of enjoyable content in The Witcher 3, it is highly likely there will be quite a while until we run out of it with Cyberpunk 2077 and start aching for mods. We will probably see them popping up by that time.
