Most Cyberpunk 2077 gangs are not bound by territories like in the real world. The gangs are formed also on the basis of special interests that have an effect on the manner in which V’s missions will unravel once the game is released in the fall.
Cyberpunk 2077 gang: Maelstrom gang
One of the first Cyberpunk 2077 gangs that has been announced is named Maelstrom, which means turmoil. However, the gang’s purpose seems much more nuanced rather than just causing troubles in the streets of Night City.
Based on a brief description of Maelstrom provided by the developers, they have factories in Night City’s Watson area. Having factories is on-brand for Maelstrom given that their primary interest lies in improvement of human fresh using cybertechnology.
Voodoo Boys, an enigmatic gang from Pacifica, aren’t just netrunners devoted to uncovering the secrets of the Old Net and behind the Blackwall. They're also edgerunners: breaking every rule there is to break, and programming viruses that can freeze neural networks. #Cyberpunk2077 pic.twitter.com/Q1ckqAf5we

Cyberpunk 2077 fans might recall that the developers had previously expressed that V’s abilities can be enhanced subject to the cybernetic enhancements that the gamers would get for V’s character. It will not be inappropriate to presume that every once in a while, V would run into Maelstrom factories.
Cyberpunk 2077 gang: Animals gang
In contrast to Maelstrom, is another Cyberpunk 2077 gang called the Animals gang. Members of Animals gang have been described as aggressive and are said to be fond of street fights. However, they deliberately stay away from cyberware. However, that is not to say they are not beneficiary to some artificial help which boosts their physical capability.

CD Projekt Red disclosed that Animals use “ultra testosterone and animal supplements.” Since this is Cyberpunk 2077, the substances are unlikely to have the same level of effect as those of the ones available in the marketplace. Gamers can only anticipate as to what effects these hormones will have on the members of the gang and what it will be like to be on their bad side.
Cyberpunk 2077 Release Date
Cyberpunk 2077 will release on November 19, 2020. The official twitter handle rolled out this tweet delaying the release from the earlier announced date of September 17 as we write this.
