Throughout Cyberpunk 2077′s growth, Elon Musk begged developer CD Projekt Crimson to present him a cameo by interrupting ex-girlfriend (and mom of at the very least three of Musk’s at the very least 11 youngsters) Grimes’ voice appearing periods with a gun, Walter Isaac’s new biography Elon Musk reveals.

Grimes was recording strains for Lizzy Wizzy, a bioengineered pop star and homicide bot within the action-adventure role-playing sport, Isaacson writes, earlier than Musk “confirmed up on the studio wielding a two-hundred-year-old gun.” I’d guess that this classic gun is the duplicate flintlock pistol Musk retains on his bedside desk, however I wouldn’t put it previous him to have as many two-hundred-year-old weapons as he has youngsters.

“The studio guys have been like sweating,” Grimes instructed Isaacson. Nevertheless, finally, CD Projekt Crimson rewarded Musk with a small cameo.

“I instructed them that I used to be armed however not harmful,” Musk mentioned to Isaacson concerning the incident.

The biography suggests Musk fixated on Cyberpunk partly as a result of the sport’s prevalent cybernetic implants reminded him of his firm Neuralink, which is devoted to brain-computer interfaces (and was just lately FDA-approved for human trials), and partly as a result of he thought the sport appeared “like the long run.”

Whereas discussing designs for the unreleased Tesla Cybertruck, first introduced in 2019, Musk routinely referenced the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer, alongside “the automotive from the online game Halo,” and Blade Runner (1982).

“His son Saxon […] had just lately requested an offbeat query that resonated: ‘Why doesn’t the long run appear like the long run?’” Isaacson writes. “Musk would quote Saxon’s query repeatedly.”

“He’s not good at studying the room,” Grimes mentioned. “My favourite model of E is the one who’s down for Burning Man and can sleep on a sofa, eat canned soup, and be chill.” Put the gun down, man.
