‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Director Hates the ‘Ciri’ Question, Says ‘We Are Not Kingdom Hearts’
It’s a testament to the popularity of CD Projekt Red’s last video game, “The Witcher 3,” that fans are still desperately trying to hold onto it. One of the ways they do this is by constantly asking if one of that title’s main characters, Ciri, will be making an appearance in “Cyberpunk 2077.” It would seem that the developers aren’t thrilled to be asked this question every time, and the game’s director finally said that he was against it.
As Comicbook.com noted, the whole “Will Ciri make an appearance in ‘Cyberpunk 2077’?” question began when the aforementioned character shared some stories in "TW3." For those who don’t know, this awesome female warrior is capable of traveling through space and time. In one instance, she even mentions going to a world that is clearly a nod to the company’s upcoming sci-fi game.
One of the results of this Easter egg is that fans are now wondering if they will see Ciri once they start tearing up Night City as the freelancer V. According to the game’s director, Adam Badowski, he is completely against this kind of scenario.
Badowski made the comment in a recent interview with Polygon, where he clearly expressed exasperation after being asked the dreaded question. He did literally say "I hate this question."
“We are not Kingdom Hearts,” Badowski then answered. “We are not joining universes, and I know that there are a lot of fans on the team and they would like to have Ciri in the game. But I am totally against it, still.”
Sitting beside Badowski was Marcin Iwiński, joint CEO of CD Projekt, and he seemed to be having a great time. He even teased the director, saying that this was his favorite question and that “Maybe you will change your mind.”
At least not everyone is against the idea, so there is hope. If enough fans beg the company for this tiny detail, perhaps their favorite teleporting heroine will actually make an appearance.
