Cyberpunk 2077's Lead Quest Designer Says It Will Have More Romances Than Witcher 3

Cyberpunk 2077's Lead Quest Designer Says It Will Have More Romances Than Witcher 3

Move over, Geralt of Rivia.

Love still blooms in a techno dystopia, it seems. PaweĊ‚ Sasko, lead quest designer on Cyberpunk 2077, confirmed that romances abound in the world of Cyberpunk, and they'll be just as involved and more varied than previous CD Projekt Red games.

In a DM conversation on Twitter with a member of the Cyberpunk subreddit, preserved in screencap, Sasko expanded on the romance of Cyberpunk 2077.

"So in terms of romances - you can think that it's going to be similar to how Witcher 3 was," Sasko wrote to u/magired1234. "There were whole plotlines regarding character and if that NPCs were treated well and interested in Geralt, something was happening [sic]."

Sasko also writes that players will have "way more options [than] only heterosexual," saying Geralt was a defined character who was established as only being interested in women. "Here you can define what type of interactions your character prefers and have a relationship with that NPC / NPCs," writes Sasko.

This lines up with interviews from last year about a variety of romance options, but it also sounds like the quantity will be greater, if only by sheer volume of options. Sadly, we already know that Keanu Reeves, aka Johnny Silverhand, is probably not among those options. But we do know that alongside having sexual preferences, you can also determine your gender identity, which it sounds like will determine whether certain romances are available.

It sounds ambitious as hell, but then again, hasn't Cyberpunk 2077 always sounded that way? It'll be interesting to see how it all pans out on April 16, 2020. In the meantime, if you want some more info, be sure to read up on our interview with the game's quest director at E3 2019.
