CD Projekt Red have announced that Cyberpunk 2077 has a content creator-friendly feature that lets them disable copyrighted music. No worries - there's plenty more music to be played.
"As always, we encourage everyone to create videos using content from our games and we love to see you stream them. With the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, we are incredibly excited to see your streams, playthroughs, Let’s Play videos, achievement guides, hell, maybe even speedruns of our upcoming RPG", the dev wrote.
With that in mind, the studio came up with a dedicated feature "Disable Copyrighted Music" feature. It is a simple toggle feature found in the game's settings, and should go a long way towards preventing your videos from being demonetised or taken down.
Just make sure that you turn it on before you start streaming Cyberpunk 2077, although the more forgetful kind of streamers would probably do well to keep it on at all times, just to prevent any unnecessary surprises.
That said, you need not worry about the feature resulting in a repetitive soundtrack, because Cyberpunk 2077's copyrighted music is way less than a tip of the proverbial iceberg. Packing a lengthy, "beautiful, robust original score" that was made by in-house composers, Cyberpunk also features more than 150 songs created by all sorts of artists, in all sorts of genres.
Now, CDPR didn't say exactly how many of these tracks will be disabled with the above feature, but they did say it's "a small portion". Being the good-guy-Gregs they are, though, they encouraged anyone who encounters copyright strikes with the feature on to contact them as soon as possible, so they can fix it.
