Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games of this generation. With developer CD Projekt RED incorporating consumer-friendly practices such as no microtransactions or loot boxes into the game’s marketing. With the multiplayer still a cryptic enigma CD Projekt RED discussed monetization within the mode.

In a report from PlayStation Lifestyle, CD Projekt Red stated:

“As far as the monetization of multiplayer for Cyberpunk is concerned, we believe right now it’s definitely too early to share any details on that or give guidance; the project is in a relatively early stage,” says Adam Kicinski, CD Projekt Red’s Chief Executive Officer during an earnings call. “We keep experimenting – that’s our first multiplayer game. We check various options and possibilities, and it’s definitely not the time to point you in a specific direction on that. Of course, you can expect that we won’t change our general policy towards ‘deals with gamers’ so I expect wise monetization and – always – value for money.”

It should be noted that the multiplayer part of Cyberpunk 2077 won’t launch with the game. It’ll be added at a later date.

This will alarm many gamers as publishers have been over-monetizing games with loot boxes, microtransactions, time savers, and subscription services (Fallout 1st) and hoped CD Projekt RED wouldn’t succumb to this. But according to the call, CD Projekt RED was talking about monetization and not microtransactions.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches on April 16 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It’ll come to Google Stadia at a later date.
