Cyberpunk 2077 is aiming for accessibility, CD Projekt Red has confirmed via game’s official Twitter account. The developer has shared an in-game screenshot of a character called Kirk, who’s apparently having business with protagonist V.
Kirk says that “Ho, you know me – I’m a man of the biz. So I need to know what I get out of it.”
The subtitle is shown with a light color and small font, making it next to impossible to read. CD Projekt Red has confirmed via Twitter that the accessibility options in Cyberpunk 2077 will allow players to make changes not only to the color but also to the size of the subtitles.
“You’ll be able to adjust those (color/size),” the official Twitter account has replied to fans’ concerns over the topic.
There was no confirmation on whether Cyberpunk 2077 will allow players to add a background to the subtitles, which seems to be the main issue here due to the game being so shiny.
