Cyberpunk 2077 will have an option to broadcast it on Twitch without closing the stream for the music

In view of the problem of streams closing due to using music licensed on Twitch, Cyberpunk 2077 will allow changing the soundtrack. It's an option that other games have been doing for years.

Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to be released in December, after many years of waiting and several delays. It will come as no surprise that heading into its release Cyberpunk2 077 will be one of the most played games on Twitch. But there is the shadow of the closure of streaming that has been plaguing the platform for years, and has intensified weeks ago.

Music without rights to broadcast your adventures in Night City

By broadcasting a game on Twitch, we are using third-party material for what could be a commercial use, and counting on the developer or producer not wanting to file claims. But they do not count on the fact that the music of a video game is usually collected under a license that does not allow its use on streaming platforms. And Cyberpunk 2077 is in the spotlight due to the high number of guest artists it has for its soundtrack.

Grimes, Rat Boy, Run the Jewels and Nine Inch Nails are avrios of the artists that will be in the soundtrack of Cyberpunk 2077. And just by those names we already imagine that it will be a legal nightmare for streamers or YouTubers. But they have thought about it so that streamers or youtubers do not have to put the game on silence.

It's an option that has been around in numerous games for years: an option that makes music streamer friendly. That is, it will not put music that will cause copyrights problems either because it is free or because CD Projekt RED has taken care of the musical rights. You just have to go to the Cyberpunk 2077 options before starting the game, activate that option and we can broadcast the game or record gameplays on Twitch without fear of being knocked down instantly or within several months because of the music.
