CD Projekt Disables Cyberpunk 2077 Mods for Phantom Liberty Launch

CD Projekt Red has temporarily disabled mods for Cyberpunk 2077 to ensure a smooth playing experience for PC players during the launch of the Phantom Liberty expansion. The developer issued a statement on their support account, informing Steam and Epic Games players that mods would be automatically disabled in order to prevent any conflicts with the new content added in Phantom Liberty.

While CD Projekt Red has disabled mods, they've also clarified that those who still wish to use mods can reactivate them at their own risk. The temporary disablement is simply a precautionary measure to avoid any technical issues caused by mods before they receive updates from the modding community. CD Projekt Red wants gamers to have the best possible experience when playing the game.

It's uncertain whether mods will be disabled when launching Cyberpunk 2077 through CD Projekt Red's own GOG Galaxy launcher, but it's likely that the situation will be the same. Additionally, it remains unclear whether the ability to install mods will be enabled again in the future. However, CD Projekt Red has demonstrated their strong support for the modding community and previously released official mod support for Cyberpunk 2077.

The Phantom Liberty expansion, accompanied by the game-changing Update 2.0, brought significant enhancements to Cyberpunk 2077. The update introduced a new perk system, improved AI, and resolved certain mysteries in the game. The release of the expansion has sparked a surge in popularity for Cyberpunk 2077 on Steam, with the player count expected to rise even further.

In IGN's review of the expansion, they praised the improvements made by CD Projekt Red, saying, “Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty completes an immense turnaround for CD Projekt Red's future RPG kickstarted with the anime spin-off, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, and its latest 2.0 Update.”

Overall, CD Projekt Red's decision to temporarily disable mods for the Phantom Liberty launch demonstrates their commitment to ensuring a seamless gaming experience for players. Their support for the modding community has been evident, and it is highly likely that mods will be enabled again in the future.
