Cyberpunk 2077 Lets You Pet The Cat

One of the most important details of CD Projekt Red's upcoming games has now been confirmed.


First impressions of Cyberpunk 2077 have started rolling in after a number of journalists spent time with a demo of the upcoming CD Projekt game. However only IGN's preview seems to have unearthed a very important feature of the game: that you can, in fact, pet the cat.

The preview unfortunately didn't go into too much detail on whether there is just a single, pettable cat to be found, or whether multiple are dispersed throughout the game, but it's still a big improvement on The Witcher 3's disappointingly Witcher-averse cats. Whether dogs are present or pettable in Cyberpunk 2077 still has yet to be seen.

Now Playing: How Cyberpunk 2077's Gameplay Works

While "can you pet the dog?" has long been an important question in video game criticism, inspired by the Twitter account of the same name, cats are only just starting to get the same kind of recognition in virtual petting.

If you have more non-cat-related questions about Cyberpunk 2077, check out Tamoor Hussain's preview of some of the game's smaller stories, or Edmond Tran's investigation of cyberpunk themes in the Cyberpunk 2077 demo.

The game has unfortunately been delayed again--first scheduled for April, then pushed back to September, Cyberpunk 2077 is now scheduled for a November 19 release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. CD Projekt Red has also promised that these versions of the game will be playable on next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X thanks to a free update.
