Cyberpunk 2077 is getting official mod support with the help of Wolvenkit developers

Written by Stuart Thomas on Wed, Sep 1, 2021 11:55 AM

We all know the story of CD Projekt Red’s troubled launch with Cyberpunk 2077 last year, and since then we have received numerous patches focusing on bugs and quality of life changes. However, the modding scene has also been very active, but only because of community help. That changes soon though as CDPR has officially hired the developers of Wolvenkit to help create official modding tools for CP2077.

All mods thus far for Cyberpunk 2077 only exist because of help from community modders. The developers of Wolvenkit, the unofficial modding tools for CD Projekt Red games like The Witcher 3 and CP2077, have now been hired by CDPR in order to work on some official modding tools for the game.

We are extremely pleased to announce that @Blumster, @Nightmarea, @rfuzzo and I will be joining CDPR under my and @Nightmarea's company (https://yigsoft.dev/),” said Hambalkó Bence (known as Traderain in the modding community) in the Cyberpunk 2077 Discord. 

We will be working on various projects related to the Cyberpunk 2077 backend and the game's modding support. We are really excited for this and we really hope we can help to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to the next level!

Essentially, this should help to boost Cyberpunk2077’s modding scene, making mods easier to create and implement. Naturally, the move has garnered some criticism for CDPR having to hire community members to help fix the game, but largely the response has been positive that CD Projekt Red is taking action to implement some official mod tools.

What do you think? Are you excited for official mod support in Cyberpunk 2077? Have you already played with some mods? Which ones? And how did they help? Let us know!

Do you normally play games with mods?

Have you downloaded any mods for Cyberpunk 2077 yet?

Well, if CDPR won't fix it, now at least modders will get better chances. :-D


As for playing games with mods, I mostly don't, but it depends on game, Bethesda games, meaning TES and Fallout, I always modded. But most I just play as they come.
