Cyberpunk 2077 - multiplayer mode will have micropayments
During the latest financial conference call from CD Projekt, it was revealed that the multiplayer mode in Cyberpunk 2077 is at an early stage of creation. We also learned that it is planned to implement a well thought-out micropayment system.
We could read a few months ago that the new production of the Polish studio CD Projekt - Cyberpunku 2077 - should appear several months ago. Then the creators did not give any particulars about it. They only assured that multiplayer gameplay would not be available during the release of the game. A few days ago, during a financial teleconference, CD Projekt's Vice President of Finance, Piotr Nielubowicz, confirmed that the multiplayer mode is already at an early stage of production.
"What can be seen on the balance sheet comes mainly from Cyberpunk - single and multi-person, with the latter being a smaller project that is just beginning. We also have a few other things at an early stage, but as I said, the vast majority of expenses are related to the Cyberpunk universe."
And although we still do not have accurate information on what the multiplayer mode will look like, we have learned that there will be micropayments in it. The CEO, Adam Kiciński, assures, however, that they will be done in a thoughtful way and in accordance with the company's policy - they will offer the right value for money. It is worth remembering that this whole project (multiplayer and micropayment mode) is still at an early stage of development, and the developers plan to add it to the game only some time after its release.
During the conference call, the creators of Cyberpunk 2077 also referred to whether their production will appear on the new generation consoles. Once again, no details were given, although it was assured that the company was keeping an eye on what was happening on the market. Sooner or later developers will do something in this direction, however, no specific actions should be expected during the premiere of new Sony and Microsoft devices.
During the talks there was also a question about virtual reality and the recently announced new production of Valve - Half-Life: Alyx. According to the creators of Cyberpunk 2077, this is a very niche product targeted at a specific group of recipients. The Polish studio has not heard of anyone in the industry building a solid business based on such a system, although it does not exclude that it may change in a few years. Currently, however, CD Projekt does not even think about VR technology.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released on April 16, 2020 on personal computers and on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. The title will be available in the full Polish language version (dubbing and subtitles).
