CYBERPUNK 2077 Developers Are Not A Fan Of Microtransactions
Gamers are waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 impatiently in their chairs, so every new information is exciting. In an interview with GameSpot, CD Projekt Red’s John Mamais unveiled a lot about the upcoming game. But one major question that he might have answered included microtransactions. The money-grabbing feature that comes into many new AAA games has disappointed players, and it’s a debatable topic in the video game industry. But it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 apparently won’t have them at all. Mamais is the head of the Krakow office, which made a large chunk of the game’s development.
And he said:
I think it’s a wrong idea to add microtransactions after you release a game. It seems like it’s very lucrative, though. It’s probably a hard decision for the guy that runs the business to determine if we should include it or not. But if everyone don’t like it, why would we do something like that and lose the loyalty of our customers?
That doesn’t seem like CD Projekt Red plans to combine microtransactions into the upcoming game. Which is a welcome relief. Games are becoming more and more costly, with season passes, DLCS, all sorts of editions, and all of the other trappings that gaming companies have designed to increase more profit. The absence of microtransactions in Cyberpunk 2077 is a welcoming change.
