This Tuesday, Cyberpunk 2077 has become a potential epilepsy risk brand in a high-profile PSA article published by Game Informer based on a pre-release copy.
The British charity Epilepsy Action then requested an urgent update of the game accordingly.
Later that day, CD Projekt replied that the game’s EULA text on the website contained seizure warnings, but the game now also has seizure warnings. It seems that it is currently implemented.
In addition to this, CD Projekt said that a more permanent solution that will be implemented as soon as possible is also “currently under investigation”.
