Cyberpunk 2077 Multiplayer Concerns Squashed By CD Projekt – “We Leave Greed To Others”
The past few weeks have been particularly heated for gamers as they wrestle with the idea that full-price games they purchase will have pay-to-play qualities. EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II has been the center of a barrage of heated debate over their use of microtransactions as a means of advancing a player more quickly. Finding it unfair, many players have backed out of the game altogether causing EA to temporarily drop their transaction policy. It is no surprise then that fans might be wary when they hear that the Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer would contain elements online that may ensure success long-term.
The news first came last week when CD Projekt RED CEO, Adam Kiciriski, noted the coming RPG would have these “online elements”. In an interview with Poland’s investment site Strefa Inwestorow, he said that the developer wanted the game to be even more commercially significant than Witcher 3. The meaning behind what a more commercially significant game, especially in terms of Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer, left fans with more than a few concerns.
.@PrettyBadTweets Worry not. When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than TW3 — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. No hidden catch, you get what you pay for — no bullshit, just honest gaming like with Wild Hunt. We leave greed to others.

In response to those concerns, CD Projekt RED made a comment on Twitter that may well put the entire conversation to rest. The tweet noted that the elements of online play would not take anything away from single-player aspects of the game. In essence, the company is focusing on a massive story-driven RPG that will include online elements for Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer games.
The comment lacks any clarification on whether or not Cyberpunk 2077 will contain microtransactions, however, they seem intent on making sure fans continue to be happy with their games. In the end, it would seem that fans definitely have power over how their games are presented and companies are wise to play fair with their consumer base. Will microtransactions ultimately ruin multiplayer games? Join in on the conversation in the comment section below! Don’t forget to follow DFTG on Twitter for live gaming and entertainment news 24/7!
