      Will Ciri be in game ? =)

      As for my personal view on this, no. There are plenty of ways of making Witcher references and easter eggs that do not involve universe-hopping magic users coming into the 2020/2077 setting. For example, have RED be a corporation in 2077, and have someone be playing Witcher part 8 on a cyberdeck. Or, have there be physical Gwent cards in someone's apartment. But, anyways, that's just my personal opinion.

      Your thread name isn't very descriptive, by the way. Great way to make sure nobody finds it with the search function.
      In Witcher 3, by having Ciri teleport to the world of Cyberpunk, CDPR has already made the connection between worlds. A full cut scene of her explaining the world she has visited already is much more then just an easter egg. So now I believe they will allow Witcher fans to find out what she did all those 6 months in Night City, in Cyberpunk 2077. So you fear they wouldn't universe hop but they already have. And probably will in Cyberpunk 2077 and why not. CDPR having fun with their games.

        She describes a world where people have metal in their heads, and where they wage war from a distance using devices similar to megascopes, which as far as I can tell not being a huge Witcher expert, in this case refers to, basically, a desktop with a screen and online access. Or, possibly a smartphone. She also says that "everyone" has a flying ship there.

        I can understand how the reference of people having metal in their heads fits in with cyberware. That's fair enough. Waging war from a distance wouldn't necessarily mean guns, since the Witcher world can just as well "wage war from a distance" with bows, crossbows and spells. So, the distance has to be much greater, and since she does say they waged war from a distance using devices similar to megascopes, one has to wonder...how does this correlate with the 2077 world, at all? Where would this girl have gotten to see wartime operations in the 2077 world - assuming, of course, there would be a new corporate war raging then - and see these people, sitting on their computers (in 2020, while desktops do exist, people tend to use cyberdecks instead), and how would she know people would "wage war" on them? And, of course, while Night City in 2020 does have plenty of air travel, claiming that everyone has a "flying ship" is a bit silly.

        See... The whole "waging war from a distance using devices similar to megascopes" -line actually, to me, sounds a lot more like people sitting at their computers, playing Call of Duty. Or, it could be a reference to drone operators. Neither of which are very apt references to 2020. The "having metal in their heads" -line would be the easiest to link to 2020, or it could just be referencing the teaser where the full borg chick is shot in the face, showing an armor plating underneath the paintjob. Everyone having flying ships is almost as out of place in 2020 as it is on our day.

        So... I mean... This is all so vague that, to me at least, it just seems like fun little easter eggy references. Nothing in it specifically, conclusively, puts her in 2077.

        And, as far as the whole "connection between worlds" -claim goes, right now that exists solely in Witcher 3. If you ask me, that's where it can stay. The world of 2077 needs not be connected to anywhere other than firmly to the source material.

          Its still a direct reference to Cyberpunk 2077 regardless, and CDPR has already made the connection to both game worlds in this instance anyway. Doesn't mean the whole game world of Cyberpunk 2077 want be 100% source material outside of Ciri if she is in 2077. And who knows how different the worlds of 2020 to 2077 will be. There really isn't an argument here. Call it a reference or easter egg either way...

          As far as the connection between worlds, sure its only been talked about in the Witcher 3 because Cyberpunk 2077 isn't out yet but just wait and see. But CDPR writing it into the story, even if it's only a small conversation, having Ciri already visit the world of Cyberpunk and return means that, Yes they have already made the connection within the worlds, if that isn't obvious enough. Personally, I think its awesome for CDPR to reference their games together.

            I think it's terrible.

            Cyberpunk is a different game a different world a different idea in gaming altogether.

            Cyberpunk could ( may in fact already) be happening. Ciri can't and won't.

            The Ciri line was left deliberately vague by CDPR writers, as it fits into THAT world of dimension hopping and magics. Totally fine. Could refer to a cyberpunk world, or AE Van Vogt or a hundred othr sci fi settings. Could not. Vague. Not an accident.

            Ciri does not fit into a reality-based setting and her presence there, although cool for some people, would be jarring to others. Not worth it and I bet if she sees any reference at all in CDPR's new IP, it will be very oblique.

            Anyway, plenty of these threads around. Going to merge this one - take a gander at some of the arguments for and against that others have made.

              It's about as indirect as anything can be, so regardless, it is not.

              Well, again, no. These couple of lines of dialogue look like nothing more than a fun little easter egg in Witcher; the developers saying to the community "hey guys, remember, we're doing another game as well!" There is no connection from Witcher 3 specifically to 2077, and there obviously is no connection from 2077 to anywhere, seeing as it's not out yet.

              If a character from Witcher were to somehow travel into the world of 2077, then yeah, it would take a pretty big leap away from 2020.

              Exactly. There have been several of these speculation threads about Ciri throughout the years, and a massive number of speculation threads of this, that and all the other things, here on these forums, in Reddit, in almost weekly "here's what we know so far" -articles on random blog sites as well as all kinds of rather pointless YouTube videos. If people only knew how to wait and see, instead of all the speculation.

                Pick apart my post anyway you want. My views won't change. And what scares you most? The fact CdpR consciously made a reference of Cyberpunk 2077 in Witcher 3 by a main character already? Or that they might create another reference to her in 2077? Ciri did visit a cyberpunk world, which means her magic got her to this cyberpunk world. She spent time there, and returned. I get it, some don't like this idea while others do. We can agree to disagree. All I know for a fact is everything Ciri said and everyone's got a flying car...lol

                    • All I know is that it will be sad moment for the feel of the game and its fiction if I encounter a whitehaired scarfaced lass with an elf companion. "So they really couldn't help themselves and leave that vague joke open." Sounds awful.

                      • If there was a cyberpunk game where it could make sence for a character like Ciri to possibly show up in, it would be Shadowrun... not Cyberpunk 2020/2077.

                          Maybe CDPR is making two cyberpunk games. One Ciri has visited, the other she didn't. Could be the other AAA game they're making, a cyberpunk game just for Ciri and it wouldn't even step on their Cyberpunk 2077's trademark for using "Cyberpunk" as the title, we'll just call it 'Ciri's Grand Adventure In A Cyberpunk World'. Unless Ciri was just joking, ahhh... she probably was...

                            I guess that could be it... but I am not convinced it would be something like that.

                            I am more asuming that the other AAA game CDPR is making will be a fantasy one though (possibly in the Witcher universe)... because I have for some several years now been asuming that CDPR is working them selves towards doing the same as Bethesda and Bioware are doing... essentually switching back and forth between fantasy games and a sci-fi games... so that the companies developers get a break for some several years from doing the same old thing over and over and over again.

                            At most I could see someone/something from Witcher be referenced in CP2077, maybe an old poster stuck to some wall, or you find toys standing on someones office table depicting one of the characters, or an old videogame themed bar where you could find references to Witcher, etc. Anything more then roughly this would I feel be a bad thing.

                            And if people really want Ciri to make an appearance in the game, then make her when you create your character... and I am sure a lot of people (who have played the Witcher games) will do this (and make Geralt to for that matter)... I would be surpriced if no Youtuber made a CP2077 series about Ciri's or Geralt's adventures in Cyberpunk 2077. And while that could be a bit fun to watch for a bit, after one self has finished the game that is (would not watch something like that, or any youtube playthrough at all of CP2077, untill after I had finished it my self), and especially if the Youtuber did a really good job with playing the character... even though that... I just don't want her, or anyone else from the Witcher universe, to be an actual official character that was part of the CP2020/2077 world. If they where, that would break the immersion and illusion of the game way to much... because there is no, and never have been, any kind of magic in CP2020 (atleast from as far as I have understood it).

                              I'd bet on it if the character creation editor permits you to create something close, or if you can import character models from Witcher into CP2077.

                                And if not, then people will try and mod it so that they could either create them, or import them. I guess it depends on how mod-friendly CP2077 might end up being.
