Say what now? Yeah, during the behind close doors hands-on preview of Cyberpunk 2077 a few Australians got concerned about the future of the game thanks to its depiction of drug use. And how it can offer power-ups or improved abilities. Full frontal nudity aside, the Australian ratings board has a real problem with drugs, which most likely led to the recent ban/classification refusal of We Happy Few.

Responding to the query, as posed by Game Informer, CD Projekt Red quest designer Patrick Mills notes that the team are well aware of problems the game's content might pose to some markets.

"We're aware of [the issue], and we want to ship to as many people as we can," he said.

"We've got a really great localization department, we've previously shipped Witcher 3 to markets that a lot of people told us we weren't going to be able to ship in," Mills told us. "So I'm confident we'll be able to handle it."


Good news but also confirmation that CD Projekt RED may censor or cut certain parts of the game for certain markets. Namely, Australia. Now, as the We Happy Few issue shows - context doesn't factor into the decision. Any form of drug use with the outcome being positive for the player is a straight up no-no.

Lots of Aussies moving overseas if it's banned.

An uncut and untarnished Cyberpunk 2077 is worth overthrowing the government for.

Just replace the drugs with organic rhubarb stalks and everyone will be happy.
