Cyberpunk 2077 Dev: There's No Place For Microtransactions In Our Single-Player Games

We've seen a bit of controversy cropping up about microtransactions in single-player games recently, and Cyberpunk 2077 / Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red has chimed in to confirm it sees "no place" for them in future SP titles.

Speaking as part of a recent Investor Chat (via, CD Projekt's Chief Financial Officer Piotr Nielubowicz advised that if the company were to ever implement microtransactions, it would only be in multiplayer games.

Piotr Nielubowicz: "We don't see a place for microtransactions in the case of single-player games, but we do not rule out that we will use this solution in the future in the case of multiplayer projects."

Ultimately, this doesn't come as much of a surprise from the team who previously confirmed Cyberpunk 2077 would only feature microtransactions as part of its multiplayer component - something that was eventually scrapped anyway.

For the studios who do add microtransactions in their single-player games though, it'll be interesting to see if the recent grumbles around the likes of Dragon's Dogma 2 will encourage a change of strategy in the months and years ahead.
