Cyberpunk 2077 DLC Planned Out
Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to feature at least as much DLC as The Witcher 3
CD Projekt RED may have delayed Cyberpunk 2077 until September, but their DLC plans seem to be unaffected.
Studio president Adam Kicinski revealed the DLC plans during a Q&A with the CD Projekt RED’s Polish investors. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had two story expansions, the final one adding a whole new adventure in a new part of the world, taking place after the base game’s story.
If it ain’t broke: According to Kicinski, we can expect the DLC to be announced ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s launch with further details materialising closer to each DLC’s launch date. The Witcher 3 also offered a near-constant drip of smaller content released every week after launch.
Release on track: Cyberpunk 2077 was originally scheduled to launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in late 2019 before being delayed until April 2020, and then again until September 17th.

All that is on LittleBigPlanet will perish
LittleBigPlanet is an adorable series for kids of all ages that fosters imagination, creativity – and religious eschatology.
One of the songs on the soundtrack featured a spoken-word passage in Arabic and Media Molecule didn’t have any Arabs on the team at the time. The track Tapha Niang featured a verse from the Quran which stated that “Every soul shall have the taste of death, all that is on Earth will perish.”
While that is strictly speaking true and not at all a unreasonable statement, the developers decided to keep the song but drop the bits about how death inevitably follows life. Kids these days are so coddled!
Striking Distance With Covid-19
Entrepreneurship in the time of corona
Glen Schofield, formerly of Visceral Games, Sledgehammer Games and Activision, has started a new company named Striking Distance Studios which started work on March 1st.
Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and the fresh studio suddenly hit the mother of all bumps in the road: They had to shut down the office and send everyone home. Despite this not-inconsiderable setback, Striking Distance is still operating and even growing.
Homebound: “We saw this coming and we had a couple of days where we told everybody to practice working from home,” Schofield told VentureBeat. “They came back and told us what they needed and what wasn’t working. We had our network guys fix things. We got cameras. Now we are getting underway, and starting to build.”
The work has begun: Schofield isn’t ready to reveal what the studio is up to, but one thing is certain: They are “making a triple-A experience, yeah. We’re making a narrative experience.” The fledgling studio has its own mocap studio, over 70 employees and Schofield says they “still have a lot of hiring to do”.
