Cyberpunk 2077 has snagged a mature rating, after a slew of information was revealed about the game’s adult-oriented content.

Developer CD Projekt Red submitted the game for classification ratings worldwide, and it’s upcoming sci-fi adventure epic earned an 18+ tag from Brazil’s official agency, who also disclosed its reasons why.

The prematurely posted listing was quickly pulled from the Classificacao Indicativa website, but predictably, not before an eagle-eyed user could upload all the juicy details to the Cyberpunk 2077 subreddit and Twitter.

We know, then, that Cyberpunk 2077 will include scenes that feature suicide, nudity, prostitution, sexual pleasurement, blood, intentional death and mutilation, to name but a few. We can also ascertain that the game is extremely mature, and definitely not for younger audiences – if that wasn’t abundantly clear.

In a typically cool and collected response, CD Projekt Red replied to the tweet saying, “You surprised? We don’t f*ck around.” Credit where it’s due, that’s one badass way to confirm a leak.

The Polish-based developer has a history of handling mature themes tactfully, with the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt featuring plenty of nudity and copious amounts of bloodshed. It’s tastefully done, and never feels shoe-horned in as a cheap attempt to elicit a reaction from players. 

Strictly for older audiences, Cyberpunk 2077 releases on September 17, 2020 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC. We’ll keep you posted on all the latest Cyberpunk 2077 news in the run up to launch.
