Cyberpunk 2077's sci-fi world may share little with the high fantasy stylings of the Witcher universe, but there are still a few nods to Geralt's adventure to be found.

Cyberpunk 2077 Ciri: Where To Find Reference To Witcher 3 Character

As spotted by Nintendo Smash, you'll want to keep an eye out for the endgame quest 'All Along The Watchtower'.


The quest begins with V waking up and seeing a bird, specifically a barn swallow.

In the Witcher universe, Swallow is an Elvish-English translation of 'Zireal' - the name of Ciri's silver sword, as well as the word that her name is derived from.

Ok, so it's a bird. But did you wonder why there aren't more of them out and about in Night City? The answer, it seems, can be found in a piece of in-game lore called "Avian Extermination Act".

"In the face of increasingly frequent and deadly zoonotic disease outbreaks, the City Council has decided that the most effective method for reducing the risk of infection among residents is via the extermination of all avian life within 18 miles of city limits."
