Some potential spoilers for those who have yet to play Cyberpunk 2077. If you do not wish to know of the love interests available in the game, please read no further!

For those of you still reading, in Cyberpunk 2077 there are certain love interests that you can pursue. Judy is one of those characters and one you may recognise from the game’s advertising. Alas, Judy is only a love interest for the female V normally. That is until modders found a way to make it so she can be romanced by a male V, with the male V voice. This means that those of you on PC can achieve this, by following the video below (thank you FrederickFlower)

Although the mod isn’t perfect. V’s hands do pass through objects, and V and Judy are referred to as “you girls”. Yet some in the community began accusing CDPR of covering up content. They said that the existence of the lines by male V showed that the content had been cut. This is something that CDPR has refuted. They claim that the lines in Cyberpunk 2077 were recorded should they ever be needed, and avoid future recordings.

“It was simply more convenient and easier for our localisation team from a production point of view to record all lines with both voices, so we could avoid missing something by mistake that would require future recordings”

CDPR representitive

When you think about it, CDPR’s reasoning is something that makes sense. When it comes to professional recordings, there is more than just hitting record. The ambience of the room must be the same, as must the actor’s delivery, to ensure continuity. Rather than try to recreate this, it makes more sense to have everything recorded in one go. Just in case.

How do you feel about this? Given CDPR’s track record with Cyberpunk 2077 do you believe this? Or do you feel that this content was indeed cut from the game? Let us know in the comments below!
