A few days ago an anonymous user appeared on the 4chan imageboard who predicted Action-RPG CD Projekt RED name change to Cyberpunk 2077: Samurai Edition with release on PS5, Xbox Series X and S.

The innovations promised by the anonymous author included hairdressing salons, a garage, a revision of the mining system, transmogrification, a modified interface and a mini-game like “Gwent” about collecting monsters in cyberspace.

4chan also claimed that the first paid add-on to Cyberpunk 2077 will include a STALKER-inspired battle zone, and the next free DLC will include four more weapons, New Game + and Apartment Customization.

CD Projekt RED’s many innovations from this “soft” restart of Cyberpunk 2077 (and the anime Cyberpunk: Edgerunners) were supposed to be presented as part of a major February broadcast.

It looks like it won’t come to that. Grabowski bluntly commented on Forbes writer Paul Tassi’s story of 4chan’s rumors: “The puzzle doesn’t fit. Sorry Paul. “

The full release of Cyberpunk 2077 for PS5, Xbox Series X, and S is expected in the first quarter of this year. At the same time, the game will receive a major update 1.5, the details of which have not yet been officially announced.
