There has been a lot of noise around CDPR since yesterday, mainly due to the recent financial report.
People who closely follow CDPR and Cyberpunk 2077 information will not be surprised by anything that was shown yesterday, or how investors’ questions were answered, who for some reason still see the sense of raising Cyberpunk’s price.
The case of the report is simple and has long been known. More and more people are working on the DLC to Cyberpunk, CDPR is trying to develop Gwent and other brands. Nothing really interesting.
Yet there was something interesting
Much more interesting than the dry information and statistics that everyone has already seen were the questions investors were asking during the stream. There were three or four main issues.
One of them concerned the price of Cyberpunk 2077 and DLCs. One investor was curious when CDPR would raise the price of its game and how much the new content would cost. CDPR bluntly replied that it had no plans to either raise the price or charge money for the extras.
The other questions are a good example of how investors think. In brief:
- Question: Will there be microtransactions, pay2win, or something that will increase profits?
- Answer: No.
- Question: Will there be such discounts as on Black Friday?
- Answer: Every year, CDPR has replied that this is the industry standard
- Question: Any information regarding the release date of the add-ons?
And here is probably the most interesting thing. The developers said they want to release bug-free add-ons, so at the moment they don’t want to provide any dates or submit any declarations. Moreover, the tests will take longer than before.
You can see that the developers understood their mistakes, at least from what they say. Players have a similar approach to the expansion – it’s better to wait and not be disappointed. On the other hand, it’s been said that a year has passed and nothing has been added during that time except a little DLC and a ton of tweaks.
