The most anticipated cameo in Cyberpunk 2077 long before its release was undoubtedly Cyrilla Fiona Ellen Rhiannon, better known as Ciri.
Rumors that a destination girl would appear in the world of the future were so widespread that the creators of the game asked them not to ask them about it again.
In one of the ” Wild Hunt ” dialogues , a young witch tells Geralt about a world where people have metal in their heads, they fight at a distance, and ” air ships ” replaced horses . Many players were sure that Ciri was describing the world of Cyberpunk 2077. The game came out, Ciri was not in it. Or did we just not notice it?
One of the Cyberpunk 2077 players drew attention to an episode in one of the game’s finals: V wakes up and sees a small bird for several seconds: it looks into the car, then sits on the wall and finally flies away into the distance.
Everything looks like an ordinary lyrical sketch, if not for one detail: the bird that we see here is a barn swallow, the very bird with which Ciri is constantly associated (Zireael means “swallow” in the Elder speech).
This is contrary to what Badovsky initially said about the presence of any easter egg from the Witcher universe in the game.
This is not Kingdom Hearts. We do not connect universes, but I know that many fans, even in the studio, would like to see Ciri in the game. But I am still totally against it.Adam Badovsky
But after the Badovsky’s appeal, the general director of the Polish studio put his hand on his colleague’s shoulder and said: “Maybe you will change your mind.” Then Ivinsky turned and said to the interviewer: ” Hope has not faded yet.”
In favor of the fact that the authors deliberately resorted to such an unobvious Easter egg, it is also evidenced by the fact that in the world of victorious cyberpunk animals are very rare, especially wild ones. The birds were completely exterminated at all in Knight City itself and for thirty kilometers in the district, as one of the records says.
We add that the swallow is a symbol of good news, spring and the revitalization of nature. So the final with her participation can be considered the most optimistic. However, the theory about such an unusual appearance of Ciri in Cyberpunk 2077 has not been officially confirmed.
