Cyberpunk 2077 microtransactions will be limited to the multiplayer

Microtransactions are almost as ubiquitous as they are reviled, so it’s not surprising that the topic comes up a lot in regards to a big game like Cyberpunk 2077. Previously, prospective players were assured that the singleplayer wouldn’t feature them, but some recent comments during a CD Projekt earnings call got the concerns rolling again.

During the call, joint CEO and president Adam Kiciński responded to an investor’s query regarding microtransactions by saying the company wasn’t planning to be aggressive, but that it did have plans for monetisation.

“Well, we are never aggressive towards our fans,” he said. “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 to spend money. I’m not trying to be cynical or hide something; it’s about creating a feeling of value. Same with our single-player games: we want gamers to be happy while spending money on our products. The same is true for microtransactions: you can expect them, of course, and CP is a great setting for selling things, but it won’t be aggressive; it won’t upset gamers but it’ll make them happy—that’s our goal at least.”
