Cyberpunk 2077 is full of nudity, but Twitch still allows players to stream


The game created by the Polish CD Project Red game software is full of a proportion of sexual content that can be changed in the settings (enabled by default). The game contains suggestive content during character creation, such as genitalization, and displays nudity at various points in the game. This is not usually allowed by Twitch on its platform.

“Nudity and sexually explicit content or activities such as pornography, sexual acts or intercourse, and sexual services are prohibited,” states Twitch’s Community Guidelines.

However, Twitch makes an exception for Cyberpunk 2077 streamers.

“Users can play Cyberpunk 2077 while streaming, provided, of course, they go further on things like customizing the characters and don’t spend significant time focusing on sexual content or nudity,” a Twitch spokesman told CNN Business.

Vice was the first to report on the news that despite Cyberpunk’s 2077 rampant nudity, Twitch’s broadcast was still allowed.

Since the game’s release this week, many players have been ringing on Twitter for concerns about the game’s nudity and how Twitch is handled knowing the platform’s nudity limitations. The concerns reflect players ’previous problems with the popular video game series, The Witcher, also produced by CD Project Red.

Twitch maintains a list of banned games on its platform that contain games that are ESRB-rated for adults only and that violate Community guidelines.

For games that have not been banned, Twitch’s policy states that “when in contact with in-game nudity or sexual content with an authorized game, users may only spend as much time as necessary to progress.” In other words, as long as the intermediaries do not place nudity at the center of the transmission of the game, they do not violate this policy. Streamers who do not comply risk “enforcement action” against their Twitch account, which may include suspending the account or banning them from the platform.

Cyberpunk 2077 currently holds roughly 191,000 spectators, making it the fifth most watched game on Twitch.
