CD Projekt Red, the studio that brought you The Witcher series, continues its tradition of making quite important statements via Twitter, and has responded to concerns that its next game will be a 'games as a service' title in the style of Destiny 2 or The Division.
CD Projekt is currently working on Cyberpunk 2077, which is being developed with the same approach your mum had to making dinner i.e. you'll get it when it's good and ready and not before. Concerns were raised after the CEO Adam Kiciński gave an interview where he talked about Cyberpunk.
Kiciński used phrases, partly in reference to CD Projekt's business model, like 'we're interested in Cyberpunk being commercially even more significant' and 'online is necessary or very recommended if you wish to achieve a long-term success.'
When people started talking on social media, the official CD Projekt Red account responded, saying '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.'
This has the triple-threat effect of making it look like some side-eye is being thrown in EA's direction over all the Battlefront 2 lootcrate issues, making everyone excited for Cyberpunk 2077, and making everyone forget that CD Projekt may in fact take a bullshit approach when it comes to the treatment of its staff based on company reviews on Glassdoor citing 'unnecessary crunch' and 'bullying'.
That Tweet doesn't actually say anywhere there won't be any online stuff though...
Anyway, here's that cool Cyberpunk trailer from literally years ago.
