Cyberpunk 2077 sequel update confirms the one thing we've been waiting to hear

We can rest easy, gamers – CD Projekt Red has given us the best news it could have regarding the Cyberpunk 2077 sequel and The Witcher 4.

Although many will be concerned about how successful a sequel to the once trashed Cyberpunk 2077 will develop, most CD Projekt Red players are concerned with The Witcher 4. After all, that’ll be the next big game from the publisher to launch.

Thankfully, we don’t have to be unduly worried. Not only did the creators deliver an important development update that’s put minds at ease regarding artistic direction, but we’ve also learnt that microtransactions won’t factor into the game. In fact, microtransactions will have no place in the next Cyberpunk instalment either.

During a Q&A with investors, CDPR said “We do not 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.”

Currently, there are several projects CDPR is working on. However, only one of those – a Witcher spin-off – has been confirmed as multiplayer, and thus will likely include microtransactions. That being said, given the fact that both The Witcher 4 and the next Cyberpunk are still in those early developmental stages, although The Witcher 4 is further along, multiplayer could eventually be a feature.

Microtransactions have recently stirred up a lot of trouble for Capcom, after Dragon’s Dogma 2 was review bombed due to its inclusion. These microtransactions, while annoying to many, are optional, and for items you can get later on in the game. Nevertheless, the backlash was swift and harsh for the hotly anticipated RPG.

Consequently, learning that The Witcher 4, and future Cyberpunk 2077 outings will be spared from such controversy is a welcome relief.
