Kicinski notes that Cyberpunk is “a great setting for selling things,” but that the studio’s approach won’t “upset gamers.” The studio’s Twitter account later clarified its position on Twitter in light of Kicinski’s comments, making clear that the game’s single player portion will be entirely microtransaction-free.
Cyberpunk multiplayer/online, which is a separate project, will have some microtransactions, but we said that a year ago already. Like always, expect us treating your money with respect.
