She is afraid that the CD Projekt Red employees will not be able to “correctly” portray women in the game.
Feminist Anita Sargsyan offered advice to the developers of Cyberpunk 2077. In the light of claims to CD Projekt Red about the image of nudity in the game, she turned to the staff of the Polish studio on Twitter.
Hey, CD Projekt Red, I am always available for consultation. Because it seems that you will need it before the entire Internet turns against you for what sounds like a potential sexist representation … What you have already encountered in the past, as we all know.
Nudity itself isn't the problem, neither is showing and expressing sexuality or sexual desire. It's about how it's represented and what values the overall narrative promotes.— Anita Sarkeesian (@anitasarkeesian) 16 June 2019
Nudity itself is not a problem. As well as the image and expression of sexuality and sexual attraction. The question is how it is shown and what values the narrative generally promotes.
After the demonstration of Cyberpunk 2077 at E3 2019, some netizens criticized the game for transphobia and cultural appropriation. In defense of the developers spoke Mike Pondsmith – the author of the original board game.
Cyberpunk 2077 is released April 16, 2020.
