It has been confirmed that, like The WItcher 3, you will be able to romance your way through multiple characters in Cyberpunk 2077. However, as Cyberpunk allows you to create your character you will not be limited to heterosexual relationships, Geralt was straight so could only entice the ladies in his game.
The news was confirmed via Reddit by Cyberpunk 2077‘s Lead Quest Designer, Paweł Sasko.
“In terms of romances, you can think that it’s going to be similar to how The Witcher 3 was – there were whole plot lines regarding characters, and if NPCs were treated well and interested in Geralt, something was happening s here it’s going to be very similar.”
“Of course players will have way more options than only heterosexual as it was in The Witcher 3 (as Geralt was a defined character that was only interested in females).Here you can define what type of interactions your character prefers and have a relationship with that NPC/NPCs.”
The developer was asked if it was possible to get jiggy with Johnny Silverhands, the character played by Keanu Reeves, but declined to answer, and instead commented that they did not want to reveal too many details as it would spoil the story/. “Johnny is an important character within the game,” was the only comment.
That’s not a flat out denial so there is still a possibility of some shenanigans with John Wick. Aren’t video games great?
It was recently revealed that the game will include “substantial” free DLC packs, along with larger DLC portions that will be available to purchase.
