Cyberpunk 2077's Character Creator Now Allows Non-Binary Gender Options

Cyberpunk 2077's Character Creator Now Allows Non-Binary Gender Options”

As shared by senior concept artist Marthe Jonkers, the game has completely removed the gender selection when you create a character, meaning that they will only be determined by the sum of the characteristics you want to provide them with.

Whereas previously players would select "male" or "female" and be forced into certain aesthetic sub-features, players now forego the gender parameters and can mix and match creation elements to develop the character that best suits them. "Because we want you to feel free to create any character you want", Jonkers explains.

In the current build, and likely in the game we'll get to play next year, "you choose your body type, and we have two voices, one that's male-sounding, one is female sounding". You can just connect them any way you want.

"We just listened to what people wanted, how they thought we could improve... we really expanded that, which I think is really exciting".

The latest revelation regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 character creator is just a microcosm of game developer CD Projekt RED's design philosophy.

"Cyberpunk 2077" is CD Projekt Red's biggest game yet, but the developers say its map won't be bigger than the map found on one of the studio's titles. And it's good that people give us feedback. Most NPCs you meet will have an established gender and sexual orientation as well in hopes of curating more believable in-game relationships. "Our team is very global and very diverse but we have asked for a lot of feedback". We always ask for feedback and even when we show these demos, we still ask people to tell us what they think.

During its hands-off demos at the most recent E3 and Gamescom shows, CD Projekt Red asked those in attendance to fill out feedback forms. Anyway, "at the same time, we'll tackle hard issues".

The game producer said Night City, "Cyberpunk 2077's" setting, is more densely packed compared to "The Witcher 3's" world. As much of the conflict in cyberpunk comes from battles between different classes, such as those in the slums and the technocratic elites who rule above them (as seen, for example, in Alita: Battle Angel), it is hard to imagine that Cyberpunk 2077 will put a large focus on social justice issues when it releases next April. The launch date of the Google Stadia version has not yet been formalized.
