It’s nice to know that we’ll have a good amount of freedom in how we explore the six main districts of Night City, and even the Badlands that surround the city. It’s hasn’t been verified whether you can save the cars that you steal, but at least we know we’ll be able to commandeer any vehicle that catches our fancy during our time in the game.

However, it is important to note that Cyberpunk 2077 is not Grand Theft Auto. While stealing cars is possible, this isn’t a game where you’re going to find a load of different cars to make use of.

We'll update this article if we learn otherwise.
