CD Projekt RED didn’t remove Elon Musk’s character from Cyberpunk 2077 – he was never in the game

The massive 2.0 patch for Cyberpunk 2077 brought a number of changes, including the removal of a rumored cameo from billionaire Elon Musk. The loss was not as great as it seemed.

We would like to remind you that when it was released, gamers and journalists noticed a character in Cyberpunk 2077 who looked suspiciously like an eccentric businessman – he was seen in the introduction for a company agent.

According to a recent biography, Musk achieved his appearance in Cyberpunk 2077 by threatening studio employees with an old pistol. It seems that the billionaire achieved nothing through intimidation.

In the comments to the publication of one of the fans that Musk had disappeared from joining as a company representative with the patch, spoke out World designer of the Cyberpunk 2077 franchise Patrick Mills.

“It wasn’t Elon Musk, he looks nothing like him. Who even thought up this nonsense?” Mills asks. Designers specifiedthat the businessman’s “place” in the game was occupied “random Japanese”.

However, Mills did not refute the old pistol incident: “I wasn’t there, I don’t know. But even if that’s true, that doesn’t mean that random Japanese guy should be [Илоном Маском]».

Update 2.0 for Cyberpunk 2077 was released on September 21st on PC (Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store), PS5, Xbox Series will be mandatory.
