Jackie Welles voice actor Jason Hightower wants to return for future Cyberpunk 2077 DLC and thinks it can happen if fans want it enough.
This article contains spoilers about what happens to Jackie’s in Cyberpunk 2077. If you haven’t played Cyberpunk 2077 yet and you don’t want spoilers, then click off this article. If you’ve played past the first few main story missions, then read ahead.
In the first act of Cyberpunk 2077, Jackie Welles and V become close, like family. As the end of the first act starts to wind down, during the infiltration mission at the Konpeki Plaza, as it starts to go down the toilet, the same conclusion always happens: Jackie will die.
The actor says there is a way for his character to return in an epic way. “Listen, I don’t want to be the one to say it. We could [make a] DLC upload of Jackie if you wanted,” the actor told ExBee. “This is not everyone but, you know, for those who might want a little bit of Jackie in their ear while they’re doing missions, there you go.”
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that upcoming free DLC is the plan and will drop later this year, but the main concern right now is to fix the many, many bugs that were part of the reason the game has been delisted from the PlayStation Store.
The issues regarding Cyberpunk 2077 despite there being an enjoyable narrative in the game and an overall good experience is how CDPR have handled the release of the game. Following a recent apology video from the co-founder of CD Projekt Red that seemingly threw the entire Q&A team under the bus and reports that there was no clear vision for the game itself which caused a chaotic developmental timeline, it will be interesting to see what comes next.
