Whereas self-driving automobiles exist inside the lore of CD Projekt Crimson’s Cyberpunk 2077, they’re functionally absent from the participant’s expertise. Elon Musk tweeted his criticism of the sport’s automobiles, responding to an older tweet concerning the delayed Patch 1.2, including that the sport’s automobiles must also be electrical by 2077.
Delamain AI cabs ought to have the ability to drive themselves once you’re in them & be electrical by 2077

Whereas the sport’s Delamain AI cabs are purported to be self-driving, catching a journey within the sport ends in V having to take the wheel as quickly as they get inside. Contemplating what number of points the sport’s car and visitors programs have, with dangerous parking jobs causing endless traffic jams and automobiles spinning off down the street on the lightest contact, it is most likely for the very best that the AI cannot management a car whereas V is inside.
As for Musk’s different criticism, it isn’t truly clear whether or not automobiles in Cyberpunk 2077 are powered by electrical energy or by liquid fuels, with the sport not making it clear both manner. Whereas Musk has mentioned that he recognized some of his current work with Neuralink in Cyberpunk’s brain-machine-interface know-how, it is clear he would not see his work with Tesla mirrored within the sport’s imaginative and prescient of the future–despite rumors Tesla’s Cybertruck would make a cameo.
The sport’s large 1.2 update has been postponed, with the devs citing a recent data breach and the scope of the patch as causes for the delay. It is unlikely an issue as large as Cyberpunk’s driving AI will probably be labored out this quickly, but it surely’s potential that V could possibly hitch a journey in a self-driving automobile because of future patches on Cyberpunk 2077.
