Micropayments in single-player games are poison to the industry. The Polish studio CD Projekt RED has no intention of introducing them


Micropayments in single-player games are poison for the industry.  The Polish studio CD Projekt RED has no intention of introducing themMicropayments have become the nightmare of today’s gamers, and recently producers are increasingly willing to add them even to video games that are aimed at a single player. While in online titles, which are often free, such actions are commonplace and usually do not interfere with the gameplay, single-player games are a “different pair of shoes”. However, the Polish studio CD Projekt RED will not follow the mainstream, which should be praised.

Most creators today are focused solely on profit from video games, and yet the quality of production itself leaves much to be desired. Studios such as Capcom have already shown that earnings are more important than player satisfaction. Against this background, CD Projekt RED stands out and has no intention of doing so.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 – a new game from Capcom shows that the studio’s greed has no limits. A tragic premiere with a wave of criticism

Currently, most multiplayer games include the above-mentioned micropayments. However, in titles like League of Legends they are not that harmful. The player can pay to change the character’s appearance or buy a hero, although he can get the same things without spending any money – he just needs to spend his time. So optional payments don’t make someone suddenly better than others. The situation is completely different when you have to pay an additional fee for what may seem to be basic functions, even in a single-player production. Capcom studio took such actions with the latest title Dragon’s Dogma 2. This game, costing almost PLN 300, introduced micropayments that allowed the player, for example, to use fast travel. The manufacturer’s greed has been widely reported in the industry, but the game is already regaining a good reputation, which only proves that most players have no problem with such “games” from the creators.

Mobile games bring huge profits to developers. Micropayments seem to be eating away at the industry more and more

CD Projekt RED approaches the matter differently. On recent meeting, which took place on March 29, 2024, you could talk to the representative of the management board – Piotr Nielubowicz. When asked whether the Polish manufacturer intends to use microtransactions in its games, he replied: “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.” Players can therefore rest assured that future productions such as The Witcher 4 (Project Polaris) will be free of the above-mentioned inconveniences. This is a commendable approach, and very different from today’s distorted gaming market.
