CD Projekt’s Chief Financial Officer, Piotr Nielubowicz stated he doesn’t want microtransactions in future games.

Piotr Nielubowicz, the Chief Financial Officer of CD Projekt, sat down for an interview with the Polish financial website StockWatch. During the interview, Nielubowicz talked about the company’s future and what the studio is working on. He provided information on the studio’s upcoming projects and revealed that around 403 developers are working on Polaris, the forthcoming title in Witcher.

Nielubowicz was asked if the studio would add microtransactions in future games during the interview. To which he responded,

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.

In the gaming community, microtransactions are considered nothing but shady business by game developers. Furthermore, having microtransactions in single-player titles is even worse in some cases. Recently, Capcom received severe backlash after the release of Dragon’s Dogma 2, where unidentified microtransactions were made public on Steam.

However, microtransactions are pretty common in almost every multiplayer game, as most offer cosmetic items and battle passes to provide some advantages to players. CD Projekt is working on Project Sirius, an upcoming multiplayer title in The Witcher series. The studio stated that the game will offer “multiplayer gameplay on top of a single-player experience.”

Piotr Nielubowicz revealed that every project at CD Projekt is in the pre-production or conceptual phase. The Polish studio will take time to release a new title after it released Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty in September 2023.
