Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming open-world RPG first-person shooter game by CD Projekt RED. It is releasing on September 17, 2020 and from the looks of it and its gameplay, it seems like it’s going to be a wild ride in the dystopian Night City.
Quite a bit has been revealed about the game, and a lot is yet to be known. From what is revealed until now, here’s the information we have about the gangs and corporations of Cyberpunk 2077.
Factions in Cyberpunk 2077
If it isn’t already evident from their name, Voodoo Boys are into strange magic rituals, drugs and murder. Killing, torturing and just being sadistic forms their core nature. They don’t follow a pattern in their torture tactics and practices. The only thing they are consistent in, though, is being merciless. Their world of drugs, pain and terror is not for the weak.
Maman Brigitte is the leader of the Voodoo Boys gang. She is mysterious and unnerving, threatening even. She pursues her aims with a dogged, merciless ambition – it’s much better to have her as a friend than a foe. #Cyberpunk2077 pic.twitter.com/iMP6LQNYAC

Placide is the Voodoo Boys second-in-command. He radiates the aura of danger and threat – inspiring fear and respect in people around him. He’s a man of few words, and his smile is terrifying to behold. Or so people say. Luckily he smiles exceedingly rarely. #Cyberpunk2077 pic.twitter.com/cxmYrxnitz

Tyger Claws is a gang that’s brutal, violent and merciless. Bright tattoos, street bikes and Katanas – they’re a deadly combination. This gang is located in Japantown and includes members of Japanese origin. Style and ruthlessness comes easily to this gang.

The Valentinos are one of Night City’s biggest gangs and have a strong foundation of moral code. They follow age-old traditions and honor, justice and brotherhood is serious business for them. Messing with these ideals is not anyone can do in this gang. They have captured the Latino areas of Heywood.

Animals is a hardcore street-fighting gang which does not like to use traditional cyberware. They prefer ultra testosterone and supplements (we’re talking animalistic growth hormones). Immense pride about their gang will make them do anything to protect it. They aren’t called animals for no reason.

They’re animalistic at heart, and dangerously proud of who they are. #Cyberpunk2077 pic.twitter.com/wNPtCRR3kF

Maelstrom is a combat gang which was formed by the remaining members of the Metal warriors who were almost completely destroyed by the Inquisitors. Their gang includes members from the Red Chrome Legion and Ironsights, who are also strongly against the Inquisitors. But the Maelstrom gang doesn’t just attack the Inquisitors, they attack anyone. They are based near the docks in an abandoned building. Although this gang hasn’t committed any groundbreaking crimes, they plan to move towards bigger and more influential targets soon.
6th Street is a gang in Night City and their symbol features a blue skull surrounded by stars. It was founded by veterans of the 4th Corporate War with the intention to serve and protect the people of Vista del Rey. Now, however, things have changed and their core values of bringing justice to the city seem to have lost their way.
Founded by veterans of the 4th Corporate War tired of the helplessness of the NCPD, 6th Street was meant to serve and protect the community of Vista del Rey. Today their interpretation of the law and “bringing justice to the city” is questionable and self-serving. #Cyberpunk2077 pic.twitter.com/vnfz7AsHpu

In Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most influential megacorps is Arasaka Corp., a powerful family firm from Japan. Their areas of business are corporate security, banking and legal services and they are pretty well-known for it. Their weapons and vehicles are highly sought after by the police and security forces, so they are very influential. Underneath the exterior of business as usual, Arasaka Corp uses tactics like blackmail and extortion to make things happen their way.
