BAFTA winning studio, The Chinese Room (Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Dear Esther), has accused CD Projekt RED of making sexist games. It all started with a GameSpot tweet about the Polish studio’s upcoming shooter, Cyberpunk 2077, which came with the following image:

The Chinese Room responded to the tweet, calling The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt a sexist game and remarking that Cyberpunk 2077 looks set to go down the same route:

The tweet sparked quite a debate, with majority of users lamenting The Chinese Room for making a bold statement based solely on an image that GameSpot used, and misunderstanding the premise of The Witcher 3.
CD Projekt RED did not respond.
