Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt RED has mocked the iPhone 11's camera design in a post on social media. Apple announced the iPhone 11 line of smartphones earlier this week but the size and the placement of the phones' cameras has received a negative reaction from some.
The Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account has posted a tweet saying that "We have a feeling that this design is going to stick around," with an image of a character from the game with multiple lenses over their eyes. What the tweet is getting at is that the character, seen in the Cyberpunk 2077 announcement trailer, looks like they're wearing two iPhone 11 cameras blocks on their face.
The tweet was a bit of good fun and many fans of the sci-fi RPG seemed to agree with the Cyberpunk 2077 Twitter account. The tweet got more than 2,000 retweets and more than 20,000 likes. It also prompted multiple fans of the game to create Photoshopped versions of the image which placed the real iPhone 11 camera design over the character's face. One of these Photoshopped versions, by Twitter user Mateusz Zdanowicz, got nearly 100 retweets and more than 1,000 likes.
A few others joked that the Cyberpunk 2077 design looks like Widowmaker, the Overwatch character who also wears a huge set of goggles. Some also compared it to Splinter Cell protagonist Sam Fisher. As Ubisoft doesn't have plans to make a main game in the Splinter Cell series, these weird Cyberpunk 2077 spectacles may be the closest thing that fans can get to it.
While the official Cyberpunk 2077 account made the joke about the goggle design, it's unclear whether players will get to dress up like an iPhone 11 when the full game is released. The first Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay video did confirm that players would be able to get some sort of eye upgrade, which will allow them to see more information about their surroundings, but that may not look like an iPhone camera.
CD Projekt RED also hasn't confirmed whether this is the sort of thing which will be available as cosmetic loot. The loot system is one of several questions fans have about Cyberpunk 2077 as the developer hasn't given fans a look at the clothing options they'll be able to purchase or find in Night City, or whether weapons will have rarities. Hopefully it will confirm things soon, though, so fans can start planning to give their Cyberpunk 2077 character the full Apple smartphone look.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on April 16, 2020 on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
