Please pretend to act surprised. It looks like Cyberpunk 2077 contains copious amounts of violence, drugs, sex, and foul language. Because of course it does. This was found by some eagle-eyed fans who spotted the 18+ rating that Brazil’s advisory board gave the game in the country. Though the listing was eventually taken down, people had already screenshotted the page on Reddit.
CD Projekt RED hasn’t officially commented on the rating, but lead quest designer Pawel Sasko took to Twitter to share what he thought of it. The studio certainly doesn’t mess around with adult themes.
You surprised? 😏
Because the rating was originally in Brazilian, the translation isn’t perfect, so it’s hard to tell exactly what we’ll see in the game. There are references to “mutilation, suicide, sexual exploitation, prostitution” and a lot more.
It’s unknown what the ESRB has rated the game, but all signs point to it being rated M. While an Adult Only (AO) rating is possible depending on the content, that would prevent the game from being released on Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam, three of the biggest platforms around the world.
