Cyberpunk 2077 Online Element Woes

Cyberpunk 2077 Online Element Woes

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”.

You can check out the interview down below, which has CDPR CEO Kiciński, discuss the prospects of the Witcher  franchise, their current Gwent  and Cyberpunk 2077  projects, as well as the future of the studio.

Cyberpunk 2077  is currently under development with a yet to be announced release date.
