CD Projekt has moved to clarify the nature of microtransactions in Cyberpunk, insisting they’re planned for the multiplayer game only.
“Same as with our base game, our single-player games. We want gamers to be happy while spending money on our products. Same with microtransactions. So you can expect them, of course, and Cyberpunk 2077 is a great setting to sell things, but it won’t be aggressive. So it won’t upset gamers, but it will make them happy. That’s our goal at least.”
Kicinski’s comment sparked something of a kerfuffle among fans worried Cyberpunk would include microtransactions. So CD Projekt stepped in to make it clear that the comment related to Cyberpunk online, which is a “separate project” due out some time after.
“Nothing changed,” CD Projekt said in a tweet. “Cyberpunk 2077 is a single-player game with zero microtransactions. One single purchase. No tricks.
“Cyberpunk multiplayer/online, which is a separate project, will have some microtransactions, but we said that a year ago already. Like always, expect us treating your money with respect.”
Back in January 2020, CD Projekt said Cyberpunk’s previously announced multiplayer, which it’s described as the “the triple-A release we’re working on in parallel with Cyberpunk 2077” – likely won’t arrive until after 2021.
