I don't understand the logic of how "He" "His" "Him" makes it right to think the protagonist is male.
"He" is usually the placeholder for anybody. It's not very often you hear of a hypothetical person called, "she".
Usually we say "he" when we don't know someone's gender as well. For example, it's like when you're talking to a friend about driving and say, "this guy/he cut me off," when really you don't know who the driver in the other car was.
CDProjekt could have used "they" in the singular sense, but then the text would have been confusing.
I think there is going to be a choice of gender. The possible hint for it is at the end of the teaser, show the lady max-tac officer get ready...
Cyberpunk 2077 will be an awesome game about a hero from the streets, from very dangerous streets. Raised from the gutter, he uses ultra-modern technology to stand against large corporations and others who exploit the underprivileged. The lonely rider takes his chopper, tech and the slaughter begins (laughter)
I'm kinda worried about the last fragment:
So, a typical story about noone becoming someone? A hero from nowhere set out to save the world? Not from the archdemon/big-evil this time but from corporations? SRSLY CDPR? You can do better than that.
The game isn't out for another two years. Have a little faith and give the fine ladies and gents at CDPR time to breathe and create before airing concerns. You know nothing about the story besides a little interview blurb that includes "(laughter)"....it really isn't anything to go on at all.
Gamers are so quick to write things off these days before even seeing the whole picture...
The story that unfolds in that world, however, will be entirely of CD Projekt Red's creation — a rise-to-power story about "someone who rises from a filthy gutter to stand against a hostile world."
