Cyberpunk 2077: About Possible DLCs And The Next-Gen Price

Now the developers of Cyberpunk 2077 have also spoken out about the price of next-gen games.

 

CD Projekt has become famous for paying close attention to their fans. Their free, meaningful upgrades, or the belief that a player would only have to pay for a game once, earned them a very good reputation. And now the studio behind Witcher 3 has announced that the Cyberpunk 2077 will not be more expensive on the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X.

After their meeting with their investors, CD Projekt’s vice president of business development Michal Nowakowski stated that the $ 60 price has been decided for some time and will not change: “We have previously announced that the price of US pre-orders will be $ 59.99 and we do not intend to change that.” He then made a similar statement about Europe.

He gave this answer after being asked about the price of next-gen games, so now we can be sure that the price of the game will remain the same on next-generation consoles. This is especially important because we can hear that they want to increase the price of games, there’s NBA 2K21, for example, which will be more expensive on the new consoles. In addition, Take-Two believes there will be a reason to have the next-gen version of their game be more expensive.

At the same meeting, the president of the Polish company Adam Kicinski confirmed that the game is in the final test phase, so Cyberpunk 2077 will not slip any further. It’s worth keeping in mind that the new CD Projekt game comes with several new features for PS5 and Xbox Series X, and this version will be upgraded in 2021, for free to anyone who already has a PS4 or Xbox One version.

Fans of Cyberpunk 2077 also received a video introducing a new ray-tracing at the unveiling event of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3000 series recently. Still, for the really curious, there are a few more curiosities here that the company has recently shared with the public.

 

 

The first such curiosity concerns the Cyberpunk 2077 DLCs. Well, while earlier CD PROJEKT RED said there would be no less DLC for the game than there was for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, this time CEO Adam Kiciński added to fans (and investors) that even more DLC may come, DLCs they’ve designed like it was for The Witcher. Further details will follow on post-release content.

Yes, you can expect a similar path after release. You can expect more, actually. We’re not going into too many details today, but everything will be clear before release. As we are close to the release, expect the post-release plans to be revealed fairly soon; a series of free DLCs and expansions will be described – as I said, you can expect it fairly soon and then everything will be made clear.

One investor asked how paid content will work in the game’s multiplayer mode (expected by 2022). Can we expect “aggressive” solutions? Kiciński immediately refuted this with great determination. At the same time, he acknowledged that the choice of theme provided a great opportunity to “sell things” in the game, probably thinking about cosmetic things.

[…] well, we’re never aggressive towards our fans! We treat them fairly and we’re friendly. So of course not – we won’t be aggressive – but you can expect great things to be bought. The goal is to design monetization in a way that makes people happy to spend money. I’m not trying to be cynical or hide something; it’s about creating a feeling of value. Same as with our single-player games: we want gamers to be happy while spending money on our products. The same is true for microtransactions: you can expect them, of course, and CP is a great setting for selling things, but it won’t be aggressive; it won’t upset gamers but it’ll make them happy – that’s our goal at least.

Well, it’s better not to spin it all out, after all, CD Projekt RED is famous for its user-friendly approach towards fans. More specifically, in the same question-and-answer meeting one investor asked whether the Polish studio would also follow Take-Two and EA’s solution by increasing the price of their next-gen games. It was said here that they would not.

Finally, it turned out that the newly announced next-gen version of The Witcher 3 is being made by the same Saber Interactive who was also responsible for the Nintendo Switch port.
