Cyberpunk 2077 Loses Character Gender Options – Dev Explains Why

Cyberpunk 2077 was planned originally to feature character gender options so when you created your character, you could choose to be a male or a female. This is no longer the case and it is not as bad as it sounds. Instead of players choosing between one gender, you can create your character to be as non-binary as you wish. CD Projekt Red claims the move is a good thing.

The new system will let players be fluid in their character creation so if they want to be a male with a female voice, they can and vice versa.

In an interview with GameCentral, CD Projekt Red senior concept artists Marthe Jonkers explained the studio is trying to create an inclusive game. The studio attempted to broaden the character creation system but had difficulties with the genders so they just removed them.

For instance, you don’t choose your gender anymore. You don’t choose, ‘I want to be a female or male character’ you now choose a body type. Because we want you to feel free to create any character you want. So you choose your body type and we have two voices, one that’s male-sounding, one is female-sounding. You can mix and match. You can just connect them anyway you want.”[/perfectpullquote]

It seems the Cyberpunk 2077 gender options won’t play a major role in the game after all else it would have been integrated into the game’s systems from the start. Think of your character as a canvas and throughout the game, you will be able to obtain new body modifications.

These body modifications will let players “mix it up” and chop and change parts as you go along creating opportunities to be whoever you want whenever you feel like it.
