CD Projekt RED has a highly anticipated game at hand. If a few days ago we knew that the new title of the studio will include a New Game Plus mode, today we came to know that the developers of Cyberpunk 2077 said that they will try to touch on topics that are usually not spoken about in games.

No, it is not something new. CD Projekt RED has always stressed that they are making a game for adults and that is their goal. The studio has included certain controversial issues in the narration of the video game, many of which are raging today, and that could cause some controversy given its impact on society. Pawel Sasko, one of those responsible for the video game, explained that the games that are made in the offices of the creators of The Witcher series are not toys.

In that sense, Sasko stated the following in an interview with Polish Radio, that was translated on Reddit: “Their goal is to tell a movie-like story for an adult audience, touching subjects that we face in our times. He specifies that their games are not toys and are not for children, he says in today’s culture we try to avoid difficult subjects, but they will not shy away from these, in fact, he says, the game is loaded with them – they want people to think for themselves and it will be up to us to decide what our morality is. He then continues – the game will allow you to look at things from different perspectives so knowing them it will rarely be a black and white situation we find ourselves in, the goal is to keep the player on the edge of his seat by telling a breathtaking story.”

“V’s main goal is to break free from NC’s shackles and find himself a better life, and finding the immortality chip is closely connected to this goal, which makes Johnny the key to the main plot and your relationship with him that you will build over time will shape the game’s ending,” can be further read in the same post.

Cyberpunk 2077 will release on April 16, 2020 on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
