How many endings are there?
Cyberpunk 2077 has five main endings and they differ significantly.
The game also has two hidden endings. Unlocking them is not obvious. Also, getting the "good" secret ending is a very big challenge.
Here is a list of all main endings of Cyberpunk 2077:
Getting all endings – is playing the game several times necessary?
Theoretically not, although you have to pay attention to two very important things:
- You have to complete all available series of main quests, specifically those related to Panam and Rogue. If you ignore these quests, you will have fewer endings to choose from.
- You have to make a save before reaching the point of no return, i.e. before you meet certain characters during the main storyline and advance to the finale. After that, you won't be able to go back to other quests.
To sum up - Try to complete all the main quests and then proceed to the game's finale. Create a manual save before the finale and do not delete it. This will allow you to load it, go back in the story, and start unlocking another ending. If you do this, you will see all the endings without replaying the game from the beginning.
Choosing the ending – when does it happen?
This is the point of no return, which leads to the finale – you won't be able to explore Night City or do other quests.
The point of no return starts when you go to Embers restaurant to meet with Hanako. Do not enter the restaurant until you are prepared for the finale.
V's life path – does it affect the ending?
No. The available main and hidden endings are always the same. The choice of the protagonist's life path does not affect the end of the adventure.
Romances – do they affect the ending?
Yes, but minimal, and only if you make additional efforts. The most important thing is to be in a relationship with someone when you reach the final events of the campaign (see the Romances chapter to check the available characters). V's significant other will act differently depending on the chosen ending. Regardless of which ending you got, the game will take into account that you are in a relationship with someone. Each of these endings will differ from an identical ending for V who is a single.
Play time – how soon can I watch the ending?
If you want to finish the game as soon as possible, you should be able to watch the ending after about 20 hours. However, you must be aware that you won't be able to choose between all endings – only those that do not require additional preparation.
If you want to be able to choose between all the endings, you will have to spend about 35-40 hours with the game. This is a recommended way to beat the game, as it will allow you to see the available endings without repeating the whole campaign.
The above time is for a playthrough in which you focus on the main quests and ignore the majority of the additional content. If you want to finish Cyberpunk 2077 in 100%, this time will be significantly extended. It is highly probable that you will spend over 100 hours with the game.

List of Cyberpunk 2077 endings – SPOILERS
The choice is made shortly after reaching Embers restaurant and talking to Hanako. V must then return to Victor's clinic. You will have an important conversation with Misty. You choose the ending during the meeting with Misty. Below you will find information about the different endings:
The main ending 1 – V allies with Arasaka Corporation.
You can unlock it without doing any other story quests. The hero accepts Hanako's proposal and sides with the corporation.
The main ending 2 – V commits suicide.
This is of course the most pessimistic ending and does not require any prior preparation. After meeting with Misty in the finale, the hero can destroy the pills and thus commit suicide. It is also the quickest ending, as it does not contain any additional scenes.
The main ending 3 – V leaves Night City with Nomads but without Silverhand.
You can unlock this ending if you complete all of Panam's or Rogue's quests or if you meet the requirements to unlock the secret endings. V leaves the city with Nomads and Johnny remains in cyberspace.
The main ending 4 – V stays in Night City without Silverhand.
You can unlock this ending if you complete all of Panam's or Rogue's quests or if you meet the requirements to unlock the secret endings. V stays in the city and Johnny remains in cyberspace.
The main ending 5 – V let's Silverhand overtake the body and remains in cyberspace.
You can unlock this ending if you complete all of Panam's or Rogue's quests or if you meet the requirements to unlock the secret endings. Johnny takes control of the hero's body, while V remains in cyberspace.
Hidden ending 1 and 2 – Attack the Arasaka Tower alone
Hidden endings can be unlocked if you will wait long with making a decision after talking to Misty. Johnny will talk to you and share his plan of attacking the Arasaka Tower without any support. This can lead to two different endings:
- V manages to attack Arasaka Tower – You will see the good hidden ending. It is worth noting that winning all the fights in the tower is very difficult.
- V dies during the attack on the Arasaka Tower - You will see the bad hidden ending. It will happen if your V dies during any of the fights. The game does not allow you to load any checkpoint from the tower attack. You can, however, make a manual save just before Johnny presents you with his plan.
