Cyberpunk 2077's new Phantom Liberty expansion has been receiving positive reviews, offering a much-needed respite for CD Projekt's development team. Launched in 2020, the base game was mired in controversy for its technical glitches and accused of having a problematic work culture. The company has since then been committed to fixing both the game and their internal issues. As a reward of their hard work, Phantom Liberty is currently scored 88 on Metacritic, showcasing a reverse of word of mouth.

Phantom Liberty comes off as a redemption arc for CD Projekt. The attention and resources poured into the expansion seemed to outweigh even those for the acclaimed Witcher 3 add-ons. Zbrzeźniak hinted on Twitter/X that the need to deliver a hit this time served as a major driving force behind the expansion's development.

So, it's clear that the positive reception of Phantom Liberty is more than just a win; it's a much-needed morale boost for a team that's been under intense scrutiny. Whether it's enough to fully redeem CD Projekt in the eyes of players and critics alike remains to be seen.
