    CD Projekt Red has already announced that it is removing traditional gender options from the CYBERPUNK 2077 character creator, which is quite progressive. Now, at the 2019 Tokyo Game Show, the developer has gone into more detail about HOW GENDER CUSTOMIZATION WORKS in the game.

    In an interview with Video Games Chronicle, level designer Max Pears explained a bit more about how Cyberpunk 2077 handles gender customization and romance. Pears stated that players would be free to choose different gender voices and body types, echoing what senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers stated last month. However, Pears did mention that one thing specific thing will be affected by the player’s choice of the latter — their genitalia.

    Yes, Pears confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will feature fully-nude sex scenes. However, to be able to have this, the player character’s genitalia will be determined by the body type they choose. “We have the body type that you select and then the genitals will be determined by that,” explained Peas. “You can have a male or female voice with either body, but the genitals are defined by the body.”

    “We really want to make sure players get the representation that they want,” mentioned Pears. “In the genre of cyberpunk as well, it asks such deep questions about what it means to be human, let alone what it means to define your gender.” He went on stating that “having that customization match how you feel is your representation of how you feel… it’s important for us and it’s important to the lore of this world too.”

    Why? Why are there fully nude sex scenes? Why are there sex scenes in the first place? I don't get it.

    Why wouldn't there be any?

    It's a role playing game, people want an immersive experience where they can interact with the world and other characters in as many ways as is possible. You see a house, it might look pretty as just an object on the map, but it's even better if you can enter, or burn it, or rob it, or use the sink or stove. Likewise, if you see an NPC, you can try to talk to it, trade with it, help it, kill it, why so not have sex with it? Also, sex sells, but it sells because it's one of major interests in life for most of us, so if you're building an open world for your player to roam, explore and live in, a world where it will do various things, work, fight, explore, craft and build things, learn, as well as help, meet, protect, or maybe betray, form relationships, in short, where it will live, then it makes sense that there will be sex in that world.

    The only negative I can see here is the fact that this kind of shit is pandering to the snowflake crowd. In effect it's changing a function in the code that would otherwise prevent you selecting a male voice for a female body type.

    As for sex scenes, unless there is a strong narrative reason to include them I don't know why they bother. The sex scenes in The Witcher 3 were cringy as fuck. As long as there is no graphic male homosexuality I honestly don't give a shit. My character will be sound like a male and look like a male.

    I don't much care for the "there's more than 2 genders" bullshit.. as even the good portion if not majority of the transgender communit recognize that their own "trans" isn't technically a gender and don't like it being associated to it... but the snowflakes that are most vocal seem to want it.... just for attention, to which the majority of trans people don't want any such attention and it COMPLETELY defeats the whole purpose of their trans state which is the become the opposite gender entirely if possible, and NOT to be something in the middle.

    "non binary" or any of the other now thousands of genders supposedly created is utter and complete bullshit.
