Obsidian have revealed that The Outer Worlds will definitely get a DLC and it's set to come next year.

The company's social media manager, Shyla made an announcement on the game's official forum: "We want to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team behind The Outer Worlds. It is because of their hard work and dedication to this project that we received the Best Narrative, Best Performance-Ashly Burch, Best RPG, and Game of the Year nominations at The Game Awards. To all of those who voted for us in The Game Awards, you are all fantastic and we are so grateful for your support. The reception to The Outer Worlds has been unbelievable to see, and even just being nominated means a lot. However, the journey isn't over yet as we are excited to announce that we will be expanding the story through DLC next year! Details will be made available at a later date."

We don't really have an exact date yet and no details about the content are known yet but here's hoping that, once the holidays are over, we will get all that info in due time. Until then, patience is greatly appreciated.
