Cyberpunk 2077’s 1.2 patch was announced at the end of last month and vowed to help fix an ample amount of bugs that either affected immersion or outright broke the game. 1.2, however, ended up going above and beyond its original goals, boasting over 100 fixes that optimized quests, reintegrated missing assets, and introduced some more technical, backend remedies. But among all of those updates, a dataminer apparently found some unreleased quest information that could foreshadow potential DLC.
Eurogamer spoke to a modder named romulus_is_here who used “CP77 Tools” to unearth the quest data from the archives. According to romulus_is_here, Cyberpunk 2077 quest data is categorized by prologue, part one, and epilogue (or, q000 to q204). The extra quests that haven’t appeared in the game as of yet are listed as q301, which would put them outside of the numbering range for the three default categories. These quests have a “story-ep1” tag which contains “street stories,” with their own interesting objectives and characters. You’ll meet some mysterious figures like “Wagner” and “Anthony Anderson.” Additionally, some mission objectives will have you disrupt a hostage situation, find a hidden den of netrunners, and disarm a bomb in a swimming pool (among a lot more info) — you know, normal Night City situations.
The kidder thinks that these episode 1 “street stories” will likely take place in Pacifica, because they predominantly feature that district’s fixer: Mr. Hands. While there has definitely been little to no information on whether or not these quests even exist or if they’re slated to be DLC, it’s still very easy to imagine episodic content being rolled out with future patches.
