CD Projeckt Red: Cyberpunk 2077 Has 'No Hidden Catch, You Get What You Pay For' - News

Developer CD Projeckt Red on Twitter has told its fans not to worry about Cyberpunk 2077 following concerns that it will use a games-as-a-service model. 

The developer says there is "no hidden catch, you get what you pay for." 

The statement from the developer was released after an interview with CEO Adam Kiciński. He spoke about the possible inclusion of new models in the game.

"We want to experiment in new fields that were not yet explored in the Witcher," Kiciński said in the interview translated by TechRaptor. "I can’t say much about Cyberpunk, although our ambitions are set really high because that is our style of work. We want to go even higher, and especially seeing how we’re having a business chat, we’re interested in Cyberpunk being commercially even more significant.

"Online is necessary, or very recommended if you wish to achieve a long-term success. At some point, we have mentioned that there will be a certain online element related to Cyberpunk."

Cyberpunk 2077 is in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Sad that this has to even be said. Good on them though.

They had me a bit worried when they made that GaaS statement. Glad to hear they're still committed to delivering a huge singleplayer campaign with no gimmicks. I don't mind them doing a separate multiplayer mode to drive long term money, just as long as the singleplayer isn't held back by GaaS bullshit.

Wow, he just ROASTED EA, Activision-Blizzard, and Ubisoft. Major props for calling the Games as Service BS for what it is: naked greed. Also, Pretty Good Gaming just got annihilated. Check your sources next time :P

Noice... though Cyberpunk looks like it could do well with some multiplayer.

I'd hope that means no downgrades and focus on GaaS then.

"We leave greed to others." The same way they leave good RPG development for others...
