CD Projekt Red Responds to Cyberpunk 2077 multiplayer/"games as a service" concerns

In a recent interview, CD Projekt's Strefa Investors was quoted as saying (Translated) that the company wanted to make their upcoming RPG, Cyberpunk 2077, "commercially even more significant" than The Witcher 3 and that  “Online is necessary, or very recommended if you wish to achieve a long-term success”.

This has left many gamers concerned that Cyberpunk 2077 will turn into a multiplayer RPG and that making the game "more commercially significant" could mean that microtransactions or loot boxes are coming to the title.  

CD Project Red has responded to these concerns, stating that they Cyberpunk 2077 will be a huge single-player, open world, story-driven RPG and that players should not expect anything less than The Witcher 3 in terms of quality. The company stated that they will "leave the greed to others", an obvious dig at EA after the recent Star Wars Battlefront II loot box controversy.

I love it more by the fact that it was Disney who stepped in to stop EA transactions. Ok, it was still a greed move from Disney considering their new movie is soon, but I find it enjoyable seeing EA have to do what their told for once.Quote

Awesome. I like the sound of this game too. Single player open world is the only style of game I'm interested in ATM.Quote

EA are a corporation. Corporations have no feeling, no morals, and no understanding of right from wrong. They are entirely mechanical, and just roll on regardless.

Bethesda used to be my favourite dev house. Then they were bought up by Zenimax, and since then they have pulled some truly appalling stuff. TESV was so broken for a friend of mine out in the USA that he sued them (100% straight up). He had contacted technical support a number of times but they just gave him generic replies.

You can't complain to a corporation as there is no one to complain to.

So EA won't change a thing.Quote
