The ball stands around Cyberpunk 2077 because it will have an commercial featuring a transgender, but the creator of Cyberpunk 2020 defended the game.
- Cyberpunk 2077 outraged a group of transgender people
- Because of an in-game ad
- Some also hatched because of the black-skinned street gang
- The creator of Cyberpunk 2020 has not left this without a word
While there is a huge anticipation ahead of CD Project RED’s new game, Cyberpunk 2077, there are also a number of counter-camps, although these are not about the quality of the game, but about some of the snatched elements, and they seem spectacularly trying not to understand it all, what that element symbolizes or serves. Of course, if they understood, it would be hard to hiss because of their imagined grievances.
It happened recently that an image with a game bulletin board was posted on the net (see image below). In one of the three advertisements, in the middle, is an unlimited gender figure, with the text below that this fictional soft drink offers 16 flavors that you don’t have to mix.
I guess no one is surprised anymore that someone is offended by this because the image objectifies and unnaturally depicts transgender people. To put it bluntly, they haven’t even gotten so close to it, as the creator of the image, Kasia Redesiuk, revealed that it was really meant to show: in Cyberpunk 2077, mega-companies will exploit anything and anyone to the point of an advertisement – technically there is nothing new, it is a reflection of the world today.
To this day, advertisements objectify people, not accidentally advertise various products with non-fat men and women. And in the future, especially from today’s world, there is a good chance that the images seen in Cyberpunk 2077 will appear as advertisements. And since this game is sci-fi, it doesn’t hurt to look to the future, it shows what awaits us. This will make it a little more realistic.
The story might even stop here, but others have sprung up because one of the street gangs has only Haitian criminals and is referred to as an animal, which is offensive, stereotypical, and so on. Plus, they feel that the Voodoo Boyss featured in the original work have also been disrespectfully upgraded, so CD Project RED only wants to keep Cyberpunk in its title.
Cyberpunk 2020 creator Mike Pondsmith has already responded in a longer Reddit post after someone went so far as to talk about Cyberpunk 2077 on his behalf. He said the Voodoo Boyss were nothing more than a cultural wink in his work because he liked the idea that practitioners of the religion had returned to their roots. On the other hand, the essence of the term “animals” is that they consider themselves strong, dangerous, wild animals.
He’s also fed up with others on the internet telling him why he needs to be outraged, even though he’s black too. He thinks anyone who is serious about this shouldn’t rub his finger in front of the net, but should grow a pumpkin and really do something.
In any case, with Cyberpunk 2077’s character-free character editor, anyone can create a character to suit their needs, no matter what gender, orientation or color, CD Project RED wants to limit anyone. On the other hand, the aforementioned commercial will be in the game despite all the heat, because they won’t let go of the creative idea in the same way.
