Players will get as many customization options as possible.

In an interview with Newsweek, Cyberpunk 2077 game director Marcin Ivinsky confirmed that gamers can create a transgender character.

This is not the final version [of the game], and we will really add [the ability to create a transgender]. There will be many options, and in addition you can choose a male or female voice. Whatever you want.

Ivinsky noted that the problem of transhumanism will be highlighted in Cyberpunk 2077.

By the way we represent the world [in the game], at least for me, it seems that it affects the problems of modern society. Human problems – for example, the role of machines and transhumanism.

The game director stated that the studio is not afraid of criticism on these issues and is ready to listen to the feedback of gamers – both positive and negative. Nevertheless, Marcin Ivinsky called on the gaming community not to make sudden conclusions on some short excerpts of gameplay or even media materials.

People make conclusions after one tweet, one article or something else. As for our games, [first] try them. Give them a chance. Then you can speak, but not relying only on some small details. This is a huge living breathing world. There are many reasons why there is something in it and something not.

We will be very honest. And I believe that if you tell a story the way you want to tell, then let the gamers themselves judge whether they like it or not.

Ethical or gameplay side – I think there will surely be a lot of opinions.

In an interview with Gamasutra, the quest director of Cyberpunk 2077, Mateus Tomashkevich, said that the developers had repeatedly discussed the possibility of creating a transgender character and considered this an important detail.

This is a very important and painful topic. We thought a lot about it. In the final version of the game, we want to give players as many customization possibilities as possible.

For example, we want, that after a choice of a constitution, you could “build” a face with features inherent in men or women.

Or non-binary people ( gender identity other than male and female – ).

The idea is to give players the opportunity to “mix” the character to taste. The same with the voice. We want to make it a separate option so that players have the freedom of choice. We are all working on it. This is not as easy as it sounds.

In terms of how we represent the characters in the setting of the game – yes, we pay a lot of attention to this. We do not want anyone to think that we are neglecting this or are somehow wrong.
