Cyberpunk 2077’s romance and relationships include something for everybody

Girls who like boys who like girls who like boys dressed up as girls who like transboys who like queers who like post-gender cultural anarchists who like non-binary synthetics who like cats but not like that but like, ironically.
So we already know that – like The Witcher series – Cyberpunk 2077 will feature some cyberbanging, but apparently the game’s romance and relationships system spans much more than boring monogamous cishet coitus, once only, for the purpose of procreation as a biological obligation to the species.
“Similar to the Witcher, but with more diversity. There are a lot more options. You know, you’re defining your own character here, which means defining their sexuality any way you want. With Geralt, you had a character whose sexuality was very well defined by the novels and the short stories and the previous games. But in this one, it’s up to you to decide. We’ve got NPCs that are gay, we’ve got NPCs that are bi, we’ve got NPCs that are straight, because we want them to feel real and that they have preferences as well,” designer Patrick Mills tells Game Informer. “We’re aiming for big, complicated relationships that continue over the course of the game, but also casual encounters that don’t matter that much.”
Whatever you kids are into, though, remember to use protection. And because it’s the cyberfuture, that probably includes an anti-malware chip.
Cyberpunk 2077 is in development for PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and will launch when it launches and not before.
