CD Projekt RED stated in the past that Cyberpunk 2077 wouldn’t have any micro-transactions or in-game purchases. Thus, a lot of gamers felt betrayed earlier today when it was revealed that there will be micro-transactions. However, these micro-transactions will be only available in the upcoming multiplayer mode. The single-player campaign, that will release in November, won’t have any micro-transactions at all.
Basically, CD Projekt RED has been advertising the single-player campaign of Cyberpunk 2077 as a complete package. After all, Cyberpunk 2077’s multiplayer wasn’t known to the public when the company made its “no MTX” statement. So, technically speaking, CDPR never really lied to its customers.
According to CDPR’s CEO, Adam Kicinski, the MP micro-transactions won’t be aggressive.
“Well, we’re never aggressive towards our fans. We treat them fairly 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 monetization in a way that makes people happy to spend money. I’m not trying to be cynical or hide something; it’s about creating a feeling of value.”
So, there you have it. No MTX in the single-player campaign but the multi-player mode will have some of them. Furthermore, the game will receive free DLCs and big expansions similar to those of The Witcher 3.
Cyberpunk 2077 releases on November 19th!
