Cyberpunk 2077: What Do The Devs Think Of The BLM Movement?

The Polish studio talked about the Black Lives Matter (BLM for short) movement.

„The important point is that we already have a recorded game at this stage, actually for a long time. This is the last stage in which we do not change anything in the story we are telling, add nothing, or remove anything. These events, as you noticed yourself, took place very recently.

The second point is, for us, Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher are games that show our philosophy as a studio. The game we are working on is an entertainment medium to a large extent, but for us, it is also an art – a work that shows our vision. It is difficult for me to imagine the events that would have to happen for us to suddenly find that we are changing or moving something in order not to touch any specific elements. Anyway, I think you saw elements in the game that touch it, so you could find out for yourself. For me, the most important thing is that our game is not a political statement, a political thesis. For me and my team, Cyberpunk 2077 is a work of art and I always stick to it, I always say it to my designers. I don’t feel like I’m producing something, I feel more like I’m painting a picture or making music, stories, movies. This is art for me, and art is the stories we tell the player, and this is the most important thing for us.

As a studio, we are such an amalgam of different people who have different approaches to political, religious, spiritual and internal life, also when it comes to sexual orientations or political sympathies. As a studio, we always try to cultivate openness and approach it in such a way that everyone can have a say and that each of these shades can be represented, as long as it is, of course, within the law and reason – so that each player can find here something for everyone and find answers to your questions,” Pawel Sasko, Cyberpunk 2077’s quest designer, told a Polish website, Spider’s Web, back in June.

Cyberpunk 2077 will launch on November 19 (but the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X patch comes at a later date – until then, the two next-gen consoles will support the game).
