Cyberpunk 2077 uses advanced AI named JALI for facial animations instead of traditional motion capture. With this tech, the game will have full lip sync for all ten dubbed languages.
This means that if you decide to play the game in German, you’ll get to see respective lip sync on the in-game characters. This is certainly a great addition since if you were playing in a different language, the over-dubbing can get somewhat awkward.
CD Projekt Red confirmed that in order to achieve this, they did not use traditional facial motion capture. Instead, they picked an alternative option named JALI, which is an AI program that procedurally analyses and animates lip sync animations.
Cyberpunk 2077 is officially coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. The release date is set for November 19, 2020, if there is no delays again (please don’t let there be more delays.)
