In recent days CD Projekt RED had spoken of the presence of religion in Cyberpunk 2077. The game’s quest director, Mateusz Tomaskiewicz, had said that the game would not “have avoided any arguments, even if they had hit someone’s sensitivity.”
Given the delicacy of the subject, however, the software house preferred to clarify the developer’s statements, which had been released during an interview in Polish and translated into English by NeoGAF users, providing their correct version of the translation in question.
“Our vision is based on the real world, and religion is a very important part of society in the latter. In our game, for example, we will see Christianity in its various incarnations and Eastern religions.”
The interviewer, therefore, observed that this characteristic could generate controversies. For example, players could enter the church and generate chaos. Here is the answer:
“We don’t want to avoid religion as an argument: the authenticity of the world matters a lot to us. Technically the situation you mentioned is possible, but this concerns the choices made by the players. We will not encourage them to do so. In our quests involving religious themes, we made sure there was no lack of respect. “
What do you think of his words?
