CD Projekt calms fears about Cyberpunk 2077 monetisation

CD Projekt Red, the studio that brought you The Witcher series, continues its tradition of making quite important statements via Twitter, and has responded to concerns that its next game will be a "games as a service" title in the style of Destiny 2 or The Division.

As soon as CD Projekt RED stated they were considering adding an online model to their upcoming title, many people feared the only goal of adding this "games-as-a-service" feature to an RPG game was to maximize their profits. "When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than [The Witcher 3] - huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG". "We leave greed to others". Given the new trend towards the games-as-a-service model, some are wondering if the Polish studio's new game will follow suit.

"We want to experiment in new fields that were not yet explored in the Witcher", Kiciński said, as reported by TechRaptor.

He also stated the following about CD Projekt's card game Gwent: "Multiplayer is strategically important, playing online is strategically important, because we want to have a commercial leg for service type games, games which generate stable income, period to period, which are built".

In an interview earlier this month, CEO Adam Kicinski said that they were "interested in Cyberpunk being commercially even more significant", with online being "very necessary" for it to achieve long-term success. As for what the online aspects will entail for Cyberpunk 2077, that remains to be seen, and hopefully we'll hear something in the near future about it.
