Middle East excluding Israel[edit | edit source]
In the Middle East versions of the game distributed in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, V, the player character in the game, cannot be trans or non-binary. Genitalia cannot be adjusted. V is also unable to have same-sex relationships with other people. Many explicit sex scenes were censored.
Japan[edit | edit source]
Indecent nudity and sight of dismemberment and internal human organs are always censored on the console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 due to CERO's rating guidelines.
In addition, adjustments to the size of V's penis and pubic hair are unavailable in the Japanese console versions of the game. Explicit romance scenes have been censored. Risque advertisements were edited with a static effect.
Where to find it uncensored[edit | edit source]
All other versions of the game in regions not mentioned above should be available uncensored, and censorship is optional.
In Saudi Arabia and the UAE, however, there are many anti-LGBT laws, and homosexuality is a serious crime in these countries.
