Cyberpunk 2077 Will Let Prudish Players Toggle Nudity Off
Along with a content-creator friendly toggle for copyrighted music, Cyberpunk 2077 will let players turn off in-game nudity
Forget about copyrighted music, what streamers and content creators will really have to worry about when Cyberpunk 2077 releases is all the nudity. We’ve known for a while that the game wouldn’t shy away from exploring the human body — gameplay trailers have shown off NPC’s assets already, and this is a game from the developers of The Witcher franchise, which isn’t known for keeping its clothes on. In case it wasn’t clear how much nudity you can expect in Cyberpunk 2077, remember that the game will let players customize their character’s genitalia.
This option was confirmed by CD Projekt Red QA lead Łukasz Babiel on Twitter. When asked by a user if there would be a setting to turn nudity in the upcoming title off, Babiel responded with a simple “Yes.” Later on, in the same thread, he confirmed that the option would be present on both PC and consoles. Babiel did not say how the option would be implemented, whether it would simply blur out nudity in Cyberpunk 2077 or if the game would feature retro-futuristic black bars.
If Babiel’s name seems familiar, there’s a good reason for it. He’s the same QA lead that recently made news for putting a massive 175 hours into Cyberpunk 2077. Sure, he said that that he was playing the game at a slow pace, but sinking that much time into a game without beating it means it’s massive regardless.

This should settle any remaining fears that content creators or streamers planning on playing Cyberpunk 2077 have — no more worries about getting DMCA’d or TOS’d. Still, even though nudity can be censored in Cyberpunk 2077, please don’t play the game in front of your kid. They’re not ready for the crushing depression of the evermore realistic depiction of capitalism-driven domination shown in the game. Or the blood and gore.
