While many of today's game's tend to shy away from overt commentary on the current state of the world, CD Projekt Red has no intention of doing the same with Cyberpunk 2077. In a recent interview with XBox Magazine, Quest Designer Patrick Mills said, "The original Cyberpunk 2020 setting, like the setting of The Witcher stories, was a complex critique of the author's world, and we don't shy away from that in our games."
Mills further added, "Cyberpunk 2077 is a game about people with power at the top and people at the bottom with none. That power can come from money, hierarchies, technology and violence. Cyberpunk is an inherently political genre and it's an inherently political franchise."
