We don’t need to hide it — one of the most exciting features of an RPG is romance, especially when our potential suitors have some story and personality to them. Cyberpunk 2077 most certainly offers complex characters with special preferences and places in the world as romance options for you to get heavily invested in. If someone romanceable in the game catches your attention with attractive looks and personality, you can certainly expect to be taken on a dramatic, intimate adventure.
But will that character be interested in you? Can you make your relationship last? Cyberpunk 2077‘s characters will have preferences towards a body type, and there will certainly be character aspects and actions that will turn them off. That’s why we compiled all of the available information to guide you towards and through your romantic journey.
Warning: This guide is based on the in-progress information available before the official release of the game. The guide will be updated as more information becomes available.
In this guide we will discuss some basics of the romance system, and if you would rather explore your romantic interest’s story on your own you can stop reading after the “Romance in Cyberpunk 2077” section. After all, we don’t want to ruin the intended impression of these characters as real people and the fun that comes from it.
Still, if you want to know all of your options and make sure to take the correct steps with your chosen character, read on!
Romance in Cyberpunk 2077
Not much is known about the Romance System in Cyberpunk 2077 as of yet. We will update this section as soon as more information becomes available.
Here is what we know, with a little bit of community speculation: CD Projekt Red aimed to make the Romance system as realistic as possible, with little to no exact feedback on romance “points” your actions are scoring with a particular character as your relationship progresses.
Based on former interviews with the developers, each character will come with a story and/or a complication for you to resolve in order to become closer with them. Your Life Path, other quest choices, and Stats could influence the outcomes. On top of all that remember that each character will have a body (sex) type: in other worlds they could be a lesbian, a bi, a gay, or even have an nonstandard preference in that regard.
Characters You Can Romance
Do you remember a corporate agent that ruthlessly knocks you onto the ground in one of the earlier gameplay demos? “Thought you could blackmail me, bitch?!” Yes, that’s her.
Our feisty lady is a higher-up corporate who certainly learned how to earn her place and how to keep it. She is not about to gently hold hands with you — in fact, she will probably use you towards her end goal and get rid of you as soon as possible. Based on community speculations, it probably will be easier to approach her from the angle of the Corporate Life Path, since you might have an option to call her behavior out and generally start on a more equal footing.
If cold and ruthless perks your interest, Meredith is definitely going to be an interesting character to pursue.

We don’t know that much about Evelyn, her tastes, and her story at this point. You will meet her inside the Lizzie’s bar and attempt to relive her experiences through a Braindance session.
She is clearly an intelligent lady and her aspirations often put her into interesting situations. Her deal with Dexter DeShawn within the same heist you are assigned to becomes the reason for you to meet her, and Evelyn immediately gives you an opportunity to turn the mission around by leaving Dexter out of the deal. Her affiliation with the Mox gang (based on the Lizzie’s bar) will complicate the matters even further.
If you are all about mystery and intrigue, Evelyn will certainly have something to offer you… and much more.
Judy will be the lady you will meet at Lizzie’s bar as one of the prominent members of the Mox and in charge of the Braindance suite. She is known for her expertise around illicit BDs and she will show you how to get the information you need out of such footage.
She will sound clearly excited about the scenes you will be exploring and her expertise in the matter will immediately shine through. Yet, when the experience gets a little too much for you she will remain patient and understanding of your reaction. This, combined with Judy’s attractive looks, could make you interested in her very early into your story.
However, what we know about the game from those who got a chance to test it implies that Judy might have an exclusive preference for female sex (only a female character was able to flirt with her successfully). This information has not been confirmed.
