Just recently, fans had been uneasy over a statement developer CD Projekt RED made in a previous interview with Polish website, Strefalnwestorow, regarding microtransactions in their upcoming sci-fi RPG, Cyberpunk 2077.
Cyberpunk 2077 – Online
The statement the studio specifically mentioned, had to do with an online portion for the open-world game. And due to the recent fiasco with EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront II loot boxes and their alarmingly prevalent presence, people were understandably worried.
“Online is necessary, or very recommended if you wish to achieve a long-term success. At some point, we have mentioned that there will be a certain online element related to Cyberpunk.” said Kiciński, CEO of CD Projekt RED
CD Projekt RED then took to Twitter to address the fears of a microtransaction system in Cyberpunk 2077, explaining that everyone can expect the same level of content from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. And then tying up the message with: “We leave greed to others”.
.@PrettyBadTweets Worry not. When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than TW3 — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. No hidden catch, you get what you pay for — no bullshit, just honest gaming like with Wild Hunt. We leave greed to others.
