Cyberpunk 2077 wont have a companion system but Jackie is still your friend

Cyberpunk 2077 will feature no companion system akin to those known from Fallout: New Vegas or TES V: Skyrim. But such a move has its purpose.

Following The Witcher 3s footsteps, Cyberpunk 2077 will sacrifice a companion system for a more personal experience CD Projekt RED confirmed last Friday. Although Jackie a rather charming Latino sharpshooter featured in Cyberpunk 2077s 48-minute demo gameplay is still Vs friend, he wont accompany the player all the time. CD Projekt RED says such an approach will make the story more cohesive and personal overall:

Like in The Witcher, if the story calls for it, you want to have a companion or two for a mission, but you do not want to be a "companion system" where you're never alone. In some quests you want to be by yourself, in some you want to have one person like Jackie or even a whole group, and in other quests you might be alone or with someone else depending on the choices you made. We really want to have the story, so basically you'll always have someone with you.

Dont worry Jackie is still here with you.

No Boone from Fallout: New Vegas and no Aela from TES V: Skyrim, then. Put even simpler no one there to carry your excess gear, but still many people to have a more or less friendly chat with in-between quests. Additionally, you should be able to bring some friends over to your new apartment (yes, Night City is full of properties you can transform into your pad, and these definitely can be bought), and the gameplay already proved that they were simply designed for one-night stands. Sorry, Jackie, youre not invited youre in the friendzone.
