No, Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Kill You With Microtransactions

CD Projekt Red: “Don’t Believe The Clickbait” – Cyberpunk 2077 Won’t Have Microtransactions

Following tons of drama surrounding Cyberpunk 2077 and the possibility of microtransactions, CD Projekt Red has stepped up to the plate to clarify that they won’t be a part of Cyberpunk 2077. To our understanding, there won’t be microtransactions of any kind in Cyberpunk 2077 and, while the stand-alone multiplayer game that is set to launch sometime in 2022 will have microtransactions, they won’t be overly pushy or required to enjoy the game in any way.  

In a recent financial earnings call, CD Projekt boss, Adam Kicinski was very clear about how the company was going to go about microtransactions, stating that the company wants to encourage players to spend money without forcing needless in-game purchases.

“Well, we are never aggressive towards our fans. We treat them fair and we’re friendly. So of course not, we won’t be aggressive. But you can expect great things to be bought. The goal is to design the monetisation in a way that makes people happy spending money. And no, I’m not cynical. I’m not trying to hide something. It’s about giving the feeling of value, always.”

He went to further emphasize that the company expects gamers to be happy to spend money on products and that “Cyberpunk 2077 is a great setting to sell things, but it won’t be aggressive.”

These comments, however, are what led to the rumors that even the single player portion of Cyberpunk 2077 would be littered with microtransactions. This was quickly clarified by Cd Projekt Red on Twitter, in which case it blatantly stated that “Cyberpunk 2077 is a single player game with zero microtransactions.”

So, in other words, don’t worry about the single player portion of Cyberpunk 2077. It will be microtransaction free. Meanwhile, the multiplayer form of the game will have them but should be far from pushy or overwhelming.
