For the last four years, CD Projekt Red, a Polish software/game developer known for powerhouse title games such as the Witcher Series, have been working day and night on a grand vision for a techno-futurist neon-drenched landscape of lawlessness, profit, and anarcho-capitalist plutocracy.
It’s named: Cyberpunk 2077, a supposed sequel to the cherished Cyberpunk 2020. It’s purpose; to give hours of entertainment, story, and thrills to an unappreciated and underutilized community that desperately craves new content.
However, you wouldn’t know that according to the hate and impotent rage both the developer and the game garners from both the “transgender” crowd and the seething mass of social justice warrior “journalists” who decry CDPR as ableist, sexist, racist, and all sorts of “-ists” in a destructive online jihad.
Check this thread lol
From transgender pundit Olivia Hill to YouTube reviewer "psychotrip" the venom is palpable, calling the game terrible for its use of a white protagonist and for its portrayal of a functional if ruthless, zero government society without providing some sort of contrived commentary about it being immoral.
It's not the first time CD Projekt Red has landed in hot water. The Witcher Series has been labeled politically incorrect for refusing to shoehorn in "people of color" for the sake of some multicultural agenda, and for refusing to bend the knee when called upon. With the developer of Cyberpunk 2077 having made a joke about transgenders and only half-apologizing for it, to the main character also saying "Did you just assume my gender" upon selection, the hate has steadily grown, and the latest trailer featuring Keanu Reeves hasn't offered any consolation.
BEWARE: CRINGE ALERT!!!! This video is so beta it will return lost virginity if watched repeatedly
Project Lead Mark Grummz finds it tiresome. "For the past few years, I've watched mobs of people on social media work overtime to get people in trouble, fired or worse for jokes, the occasional bad judgment post, or nothing much at all. So many people torched…"
Yet, Olivia Hill, the transgender socialist-anarchist commentator somehow living in Tokyo, has been very open about spilling its spaghetti. One particular quip goes "This box art thinks you can stop Nazis by proving their ideas are bad."
She has also made critiques about the neutral/semi-positive portrayal of anarcho-capitalism in the game. Some people are enraged that the trailer depicts a person of color betraying and attempting to rob the protagonist less than a minute after they meet.
Players will get to play in the streets of Night City by Spring of 2019. This author personally can't wait.
