In an interview published in PlayStation Official Magazine issue 165, CD Projekt RED’s Story Director Marcin Blacha talked about the game's message.
One trait of the cyberpunk genre is its social commentary and the effects of technology on people and society. When asked if the game carries any particular message regarding technology, Blacha said that Cyberpunk 2077 simply takes the world for what it is. It does occasionally make comments on certain situations, but ultimately it lets players live as they please. He gave an example with body modification, in which the game will show the extremes of the feature but won't say whether it's bad or good. It just is.
He also made a mention of ads for products and movies in the game that players won't be able to interact with, but they introduce concepts to the players for them to think about if they choose to. He compares the feeling to the British science fiction anthology Black Mirror, which explores the unease that can be created by modern technology. Apparently, the E3 demo also had Daemon programs that are able to quickly hack an enemy to make them commit suicide.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on April 16, 2020, but new gameplay is expected at Gamescom, and the E3 2019 demo will be publicly available at PAX West.
