The last thing you expect to see in Cyberpunk 2077’s futuristic world filled with hovering cars, a helluva lot of neon signs, and implants in your eyeholes is an ashen-haired woman outfitted in fantasy gear. Carrying a sword. But pay enough attention to a particular quote in The Witcher 3 and suggestions dropped by none other than Geralt’s voice actor and there’s a strong case for Ciri (briefly) appearing in Cyberpunk 2077. 

BE WARNED: if you haven’t finished The Witcher 3, or have a strong desire to delve into the books, don’t read any further. You have been warned. 

Ciri, the interdimensional traveller

See, *deep breath* Ciri is otherwise known as the Lady of Space and Time, a title which gives you a fairly strong hint about the kinds of powers she has. As a Source, she was born with innate magical prowess that’s incredibly hard to control. Plus she has the Elder Blood, an Elven gene (or curse, depending on how you look at it) that imbues her with even more magical power. So much, in fact, that she’s one of the few beings who can open interdimensional gateways created for the sole purpose of invading other realms by the Wild Hunt elves. That means that during the events of The Witcher 3 she’s being pursued by the Wild Hunt so they can use her as a living key to other worlds. Nasty.  

These gateways can go anywhere, to any time. In the books they sent Ciri to medieval Europe, where she accidentally kickstarted started the Bubonic Plague. But a brief speech of hers in the Witcher implies that she’s already visited the world of Cyberpunk 2077 once…so there’s a chance that she could have a cameo in CD Projekt Red’s futuristic RPG.
