Can You Skip Cutscenes in Cyberpunk 2077?

Let's skip right to the point.

With the release of Cyberpunk 2077’s Update 2.0 comes questions in regards to things like the length of the game and whether you can skip cutscenes. If you’re uninterested in getting to know more about V or the inner workings of Night City and want to skip past cutscenes and dialogue, you’ll be happy to know that, yes, you can do this. Here’s how to skip cutscenes in Cyberpunk 2077.

Should You Skip Cutscenes in Cyberpunk 2077?

We don’t recommend skipping cutscenes or dialogue in Cyberpunk 2077, as you’ll miss out on core elements of the game’s story. That said, by skipping through, you can reduce the total amount of time it takes to beat the game. If you’ve started a new game instead of going straight to the Phantom Liberty DLC, you may want to skip cutscenes and dialogue to reach the DLC faster, as it unlocks partway through Act 2.

If getting to the end as quickly as possible is important to you, skipping cutscenes and dialogue can be extremely helpful. It’s one of those things that varies from person to person – do what feels right for you!
