CD Projekt Red’s newest game Cyberpunk 2077 is well on its way to release, including being sent to ratings boards across the world to assess how appropriate it is for people under 18. Perhaps unsurprisingly for anyone who’s played a CD Projekt Red game before, one rating has been leaked, and it’s 18+ only.
As reported by PCGamesn, Brazil’s classification board briefly published its rating for Cyberpunk 2077, which was screenshotted and translated in a Reddit post before it could be taken down again. Unlike the unfortunate The Last Of Us 2 leaks, this one contains less spoilers and more a confirmation of the type of game Cyberpunk 2077 will be.
The summary warns of “Sexual Content; Drugs; Extreme Violence”, which is pretty much what you would expect from a cyberpunk-themed game, or a game developed by Polish studio CD Projekt Red.
Confirming that image for their studio, designer Paweł Sasko tweeted a screenshot of the leak saying, “You surprised? We don’t fuck around.”

The rating page goes into even more detail, albeit in poorly translated Portuguese, seeming to confirm that the game will include nudity, “intense” sex scenes, depictions of sex work, and illicit drug use. As far as violence goes, the highest ratings have been given for depictions of suicide, mutilation, “intentional death,” and cruelty.
Earlier in April, CD Projekt Red head Adam Badowski shared the news that Cyberpunk 2077 had received its rating in most countries, though none of the ratings details were published at that time.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on September 17 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC–and potentially the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
