Cyberpunk 2077 will not be afraid to shoulder the weight of his political arguments. The promises CD Projekt RED, which is working once again on a video game with mature content, even in the themes.
The words come from Patrick Mills, this designer for the Polish software house, who explained the team’s point of view on the issue and the cyberpunk genre.
Are you sure Cyberpunk 2077 is so different from the real world? Mills’ words are those that want to inspire reflections in the future players of Cyberpunk 2077: Â«Cyberpunk 2077 is a video game in which there are people at the top who are holding power , and people who have none at all. This power can come from money, from hierarchies, from technology, from violence. “
Ã‚ â‚¬ Å“The setting of the original Cyberpunk 2020, a bit like that of the original story of The Witcher, was a complex criticism of the author’s world, and we do not hold back from this perspective in our games. On the contrary! Â»
Obviously, having mature issues involves addressing a mature audience: “For us, mature does not simply mean that it includes sex and violence. We will try to involve you on multiple levels, not only from a visceral but also intellectual point of view. Cyberpunk is congenitally a political genre, so the Cyberpunk series is a franchise that has to do with politics. “
“Cyberpunk 2077 speaks of a world in which ever-smaller numbers of ultra-rich people at the head of corporations of intractable power reign over a disintegrating world, where the overwhelming majority of the population live in an endless cycle of poverty and violence. How much this is different from our real world, depends a lot on your perspective, I would say, “concluded the developer.
How do you find the narrative premises of the world of Cyberpunk 2077? The game, we remind you, will arrive in a future yet to be defined on PC and console.
