Eurogamer: More Datamined DLC Info Found
A fairly beefy article on Eurogamer talks more details of the alleged data added in the 1.2 and 1.2.1 patch that seems to point to prepping for additional content. Thanks to our Discord member double F for the hot tip! Here is the gist of the article;

Romulus told me that main quests in Cyberpunk 2077 are normally split into three categories: prologue, part one and epilogue, numbered from q000 to q204. A couple of quests, however, can be found in the localisation directory, where they are named q301 - outside the parameters of the regular quests in the game. They're also named "story-ep1", presumably short for story, episode one.

Romulus believes this name confirms the "very first large story-based DLC", and although a few of these files have been in the game since launch, a significant amount of content with the "ep1" tag was added in the recent 1.2 patch - and new additions are a lot more interesting. Romulus showed me two screenshots showing how his search hits for ep1 went from five in the game's 1.03 launch version, to 220 after the 1.2 patch. Eurogamer also separately checked the files and was able to view the ep1 quests.

Dig into these ep1 files, and you'll find story plots for "street stories" that aren't currently playable in vanilla Cyberpunk 2077. For context, CDPR used the term street stories to describe "around 75" small quests ahead of Cyberpunk 2077's release (via GamesRadar). Some of these only have placeholder text, but others list objectives and email exchanges - including a discussion between two characters about a quest character called Wagner. There's mention of a hostage situation involving a group called "Kurtz Militia". Another street story requires players to find a hidden den of netrunners, and there's mention of a bomb in a swimming pool.

One of the quests has a full description, and centres on a character called Anthony Anderson who the player is expected to rescue from the Scavengers gang. If Hugo Weaving doesn't pop up to say "Mr. Anderson", I will be very upset. Anyway, it features a new location called Newcomers Haven, described as an "unfinished church repurposed as a shelter", which is presumably located in Pacifica - as the fixer giving out the quest is Mr. Hands.
