Cyberpunk 2077 Will be Single-Player, No Hidden Catches - 'We Leave Greed To Others'

Last week an interview with CD Projekt RED’s studio president Adam Kicinski appeared to suggest Cyberpunk 2077 could be going the multiplayer or games as a service route, although it appears something may have been lost in translation. Now the official Twitter account has stepped in confirmed Cyberpunk 2077 will be a single-player, story-driven RPG with no hidden catches.

For fans of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the good news is that CD Projekt RED plans to deliver nothing less with the follow-up. It’ll be same open-world RPG at its core with a huge, expansive storyline to get lost in. They also found time for what presume is the slyest of digs at EA and its handling of Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Need For Speed Payback’s microtransactions, although it could also apply to Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Forza 7, Call of Duty WWII, or just about any AAA game launching this holiday season.

“Worry not,” proclaims CD Projekt RED. “When thinking CP2077, think nothing less than TW3 — huge single player, open world, story-driven RPG. No hidden catch, you get what you pay for — no bullshit, just honest gaming like with Wild Hunt. We leave greed to others.”

Fret not then, Cyberpunk 2077 sounds like it’s going to be everything we’d been hoping it would be. These comments should assuage plenty of fears that CDPR was dipping its toes into uncharted and controversial territories.

From the sound of things, development of Cyberpunk 2077 is progressing well, despite rumours to the contrary. Despite this, it's looking likely we're still a good chunk of years from the game actually releasing. If I were a betting man, I suspect CDPR may even be holding on for the next console generation. It's been five years since its announcement, what's another couple?

Glad to see Cyberpunk 2077 back on track? When do you think it's finally going to launch? Let us know!

The trailer says "COMING: WHEN IT'S READY". That was 2013 and still waiting. Money ready for it since then.

...So, there will be a "certain Online element" to this, yet it is only Singleplayer?
This back and forth isn't all that comforting, CDPR.

Maybe the online component is similar to Shadow of Mordor? The Vendetta or conquest mission?

hmm I'd say CDPR is going through some internal inconsistency, seen some rumours about game changes, dissatisfied employees etc..
I do believe CDPR is doing their best, making such a huge game with lots of potential must be frustrating at moments, I wouldn't be surprised if dev team would be continuously changing overtime,
yet their mention of "Worry not" is somewhat worrisome, as it somewhat indicates CDPR might be balancing on edges of problems they do not want to breakout public,
best we can do as gamers is to wait and let them finish and give us an awesome game :)

It's easy to be cocky and do so when you have a passive income with GoG and the freaking government... still better than valve that's for sure.

Not controversial to be honest, other companies want passive income too, and they do it in the form of micro-transactions, as much as I hate them, they are there and they do help them, they do soften the blow from releasing a poor game after a successful game with micro-transactions and even a mediocre game with micro-transactions helps them get income. Sad but true. :/


I personally willing to pay more for a pure game with no DLCs and micro-transactions instead(90-100 euro for example), but oh well, it seems to be just me.

They can be cocky cause they earned it. The government didn't give them money for no reason, and GoG they worked hard to make it successful.

Actually the polish government just decided to back them up for no reason, or their reason was "we support video games", which to me is well not much of a logical reason, it's nice reason, but still.

Yeah sure, they just gave a few millions cause they were in a good mood. If u didn't know, even before Witcher 3 they respected that company in Poland, they even gave the former american president the copy of Witcher 2. To them that company does mean something and they are proud of it.

I believe CDPR has pretty much always had the backing of the Polish government.
