CD Projekt considering foreign tongued NPCs in Cyberpunk 2077

While it's strictly a spitball idea right now, Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt RED could have NPCs speaking a variety of languages that the gamer, unless multi-linguistic, couldn't understand what was being said.

That is until you get yourself a fancy translator implant, of course, which would give "better or worse translation" depending on its sophistication. Will this idea survive the cutting floor? (Cyberpunk 2077, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Ohhh, I like that idea.

Would add an interesting element to gameplay. Assuming some will be languages and others fictional languages. If you knew the language you would not need the implant. Leading to different quest and opportunities

You could also be challenged to learn what is being said on your own.
This sounds awsome..

Well if they don't, maybe Bioware will do it for the next ME.

Oh, who am I kidding...

That's gonna be sick. Its cool to always add real world elements to a game. Adds more depth. Sheeit I wish I had a translater chip, nowadays can't understand anyone do you speake de engiles.

Yes please. I'd much prefer to have subtitles over crappy dubbing in film, would prefer my games this way too. Sleeping Dogs is so annoying, where everyone in Hong Kong speaks American as their first language.

Multi-culturalism plays right into the cyberpunk aesthetic too, the language translator idea sounds cool too.

Go for it! That's sounds VERY interesting. Having to need to implant a translator on the character the talk to certain NPCs will only enrich the experience.

I'm all for that idea. I'm also hoping we see Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4.

I may end up getting a copy for PC and a next gen console. Console depends on if it's worth getting one.

Anyways, excited for this and The Witcher 3.
