After how many years of waiting, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally going to be released soon. Even though the highly-anticipated RPG was recently delayed (again) to December 10, it doesn’t seem like CD Projekt Red is going to push it back once more.
Now that the launch date is getting closer, the team behind Cyberpunk 2077 has been sharing tidbits of information regarding its development on their personal social media accounts. One thing that was recently revealed is the fact that players have the option to turn off nudity as they play the game.
Those who have been fans of the Cyberpunk franchise for a long time now know that the series isn’t afraid to show some pretty mature content, and this has always been the case even when the game was only a tabletop RPG.
As expected, CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 will also feature these mature themes as well. Early in the year, the ESRB rating of the upcoming title was revealed to contain a slew of adult content, along with drug and alcohol use, violence, and nudity.
However, there’s good news for those players who prefer, for one reason or another, to not be exposed to elements of nudity while playing Cyberpunk 2077. They will be able to toggle off any and all content that has nudity in it.
This information was confirmed by the QA lead of CD Projekt Red, Łukasz Babiel. More specifically, Babiel replied to a fan who asked him a question on Twitter after he shared screenshots showing that he had spent 175 hours playing Cyberpunk 2077.
The Twitter user who goes by the online handle @PillowTrusty asked the QA lead if Cyberpunk 2077 will have some kind of censor or an option for players to toggle off nudity in the settings. In response, Babiel confirmed that there will be an option available for that.
However, fans still don’t know how far that filter or censor will go. In addition, we have yet to find out how often nudity appears in the course of the game to begin with. Some fans also wonder if the censor will generally filter out nudity, gore, blood, etc., or if the toggle only applies to nudity specifically.
In any case, it’s safe to say that Cyberpunk 2077 will have loads of adult content throughout its entirety based on the extended gameplay trailers and footage on its development that have been released.

That being said, it’s great that CD Projekt Red decided on adding this kind of feature, as it gives the players a choice as to what kind of content they want to consume. If they’re not comfortable with the kind of nudity displayed in the game, then they can simply turn it off and censor it.
It feels unreal that Cyberpunk 2077 is finally almost here! After waiting for how many years, fans will finally be able to get their hands on what looks to be an incredible open-world RPG.
The December 10 release date is looking promising as each day passes by, and we don’t expect the studio to announce another delay especially since some fans have already seen PS4 copies of the game displayed on store shelves recently.
