As we approach the Cyberpunk 2077 release, we have new updates from the CD Projekt Red President Admin Kicinski, who had a few words about their upcoming game.
In an earning report, Kiscinki wrote that every micro-transaction from their side will make the users happy. According to him, they “won’t be agressive towards our fans”, and that the monetization will be designed in such a way that users will be happy to spend their money on.
“Well, we’re never aggressive towards our fans!” he said. “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.”
Apart from their multiplayer micro-transaction moto. Kicinski said that in a single-player, their goal remains indifferent. They want to create value, that users can acknowledge and make use of them.
“Same as with our single-player games: we want gamers to be happy while spending money on our products,” Kicinski said. “The same is true for microtransactions: you can expect them, of course, and [Cyberpunk 2077] 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.”
Right now, Cyberpunk’s multiplayer has been delayed. The single-player game is set to release in the coming months, but it’ll take the company some time to release multiplayer content. Kicsinki once again mentioned that there will be a series of free DLCs and expansions.
“You can expect more, actually. We’re not going into too many details today, but everything will be clear before release,” Kicinski said. “As we are close to the release, expect the post-release plans to be revealed fairly soon; a series of free DLCs and expansions will be described–as I said, you can expect it fairly soon and then everything will be made clear.”
