  • Acting for Two:
    • Neil Newbon does the motion capture and voice work for Elijah Kamski and Gavin Reed.
    • Amelia Rose Blaire did the motion capture for some and voices all the Tracis.
  • Big Name Fan: Taro Yoko has tweeted that he has played the game and enjoyed it.
  • Billing Displacement: Despite her character having the least playable sections and having the least relevance to the android revolution, Valorie Curry, who plays Kara, gets top billing.
  • Casting Gag:
  • Fake American: Neil Newborn is English, but he uses an American accent for both Gavin and Kamski.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
    • Jesse Williams and Minka Kelly, the respective actors of Markus and North, were in a romantic relationship in real life until January of 2018, a few months before the game was released.
    • Advertisement:
    • Bryan Dechart (Connor) and Amelia Rose Blaire (blue-haired Traci) got engaged in June 2017 and wed a month after the game's release.
  • Throw It In!: According to Bryan Dechart, a few of the scenes in Connor's story were ad-libbed, among others Connor's wink and Hank slapping Connor's face when he doesn't pull him up the ledge during the chase scene.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • One of the commercial spots has Connor deactivate his skin, which never happens in the game, though does indicate that it was considered.
    • Originally, the room of pigeons was supposed to be full of sparrows, but Bryan Dechart pointed out that no one hates sparrows.
    • According to David Cage, there was a fourth player character (who he declined to identify) in earlier versions of the game script that had to be cut because he felt it would be impossible to fit them into the game with the level of story branching he had planned.
    • Giving Markus love interests other than North was considered for a time, but due to the amount of hassle it would be to program in it was never implemented.
    • Since androids can communicate nonverbally via wireless connection, an early idea of the game was to have them always communicate this way. However, the team realized that characters "talking" to each other without their faces moving was emotionally stunted and overall just odd.
    • Cage considered giving the player the option of who would lead a revolution out of Kara, Connor, and Markus—Kara would take up the responsibility if Markus and Alice died. However, Alice was established as pivotal to Kara's story, and it overall would have had too many possibilities.
    • Concept art notes for Kara say that she—a "housewife model"—takes care of a single father and his mute child. Notably, Alice is very quiet for her first couple of scenes in the completed game.
  • The Wiki Rule: Here it is.
