In this period the streamers of Twitch are dealing with the DMCAs of the major record companies. Broadcasting one or more copyrighted songs will condemn users to be banned from the platform, a risk they would often face with video games.
CD Projekt RED is alongside the players and demonstrates this by introducing a Cyberpunk 2077 which allows users to stream without worries.
Cyberpunk 2077: CD Projekt RED will protect you from DMCAs
On the occasion of the last appointment of Night City Wire, Hollie Bennet of CD Projekt RED stated that the game will integrate a mode thanks to which it will be possible to remove the licensed songs and, eventually, replace them with unreleased songs, therefore exempt from copyright.
It will be the developer himself who owns the rights to the music that you will listen to, as confirmed by the same Twitter account of Cyberpunk 2077. Specifically we are talking about songs produced specifically for the game and which bear the signatures of Grimes, Rat Boy and other famous artists. The soundtrack was instead composed by Marcin Przybyłowicz (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt), PT Adamczyk (Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales) e Paul Leonard-Morgan (Limitless, Battlefield: Hardline).
We’ll share more details in the near future. What’s good though: our soundtrack has been created from the scratch – this includes all tracks from the numerous artist we work with. Their music has been made specifically for our game making this a bit smoother hopefully.

This is excellent news for all content creators who want to dedicate their live coverage to the highly anticipated RPG of the Polish studio. We remind you, moreover, that many streamers have suffered the ‘punishment’ of Twitch, after having violated – often accidentally – the regulation of the platform regarding third-party music
Cyberpunk 2077 will finally see the light on December 10, 2020, the day it will be available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia. The game can also be played on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility, with a next-gen version scheduled for 2021.
