Cyberpunk 2077 removes the gender-choosing feature

This elimination of the old preset names doesn't affect the whole character customization progress at all but still manages to satisfy the demands of players from the third gender. That's exactly what the developer is aiming to do.

Freely decide how your character looks and sounds

After choosing what your body type is, you can decide what your character's voice will be. From the words of the creators, you can choose one or two different voice tone for your characters. One will sound like a male, and the other will be more feminine. Furthermore, you can choose to mix or connect them at every ratio you want.
