Cyberpunk 2077 Still Has Easter Eggs Players Haven't Found

Cyberpunk 2077 still has Easter eggs players haven't discovered, developer CD Projekt Red has revealed.

Speaking to IGN at GDC 2024, associate game director Paweł Sasko confirmed that, despite players exploring every inch of Cyberpunk 2077 in the three years since it was released, there are still some fun secrets hidden within.

Cyberpunk 2077 has been updated on myriad occasions, of course, including with its story expansion Phantom Liberty, but Sasko suggested there are still Easter eggs in the base game and not just in the extra content.

"I've seen one of the last articles [with all the Easter eggs] and it had a long list, but it didn't have everything," Sasko said, though added that doesn't mean no one has found them, just that no one has shared them.

"There's a couple more things that are not found yet," Sasko continued. "[At least] we don't know that they were found, because someone could have found them in their home and never shared them with anyone, and we just never saw it."

While Sasko refused to offer any hints or teases surrounding which Easter eggs are left in Cyberpunk 2077, he did confirm the telephone, which CD Projekt Red used to hide many secrets in the Phantom Liberty expansion, still has some undiscovered numbers.

Cyberpunk 2077 is full of other Easter eggs too (you can see a list of everything discovered in IGN's guide), including several which have been discovered in the last few months. March 2024 saw both a main menu Easter egg (which scrambles the version number into 2.0.77) discovered alongside a secret photo of the development team.

Other recent references include a very on brand secret message and one wild Easter egg that sees the CD Projekt Red founders give players a company history lesson.

The mother of all secrets, however, comes through a bizarre mystery which has been present since the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. A series of strange letters and symbols is at the centre of it, which even seeped beyond Cyberpunk 2077 and into CD Projekt Red's other franchise with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Though it has a dedicated Reddit page with 24,000 members actively seeking its meaning, the purpose of the mysterious code has yet to be discovered.
