Star Wars Battlefront II's aggressive push to turn its $60 premium game into a pay-to-win title most typically associated with free games has produced one of the biggest backlashes in gaming history, but the saga is far from over.

Still, the issue of loot crates and premium currency in full priced "AAA" games isn't going away.

CD Projekt RED, the developers of the critically and commercially acclaimed The Witcher series, have reassured their fans that their upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077 will be devoid of any hidden catch. That's because Polish developer CD Projekt RED has managed to build an incredibly strong reputation in the games industry both in terms of quality and trustworthiness with their previous games, the trilogy based on The Witcher. The "honest gaming" claim should put prospective buyers at ease regarding any microtransaction concerns, and we even got a quip about leaving greed to other developers and publishers there at the end.

While the "online elements" part of the interview seems to be true, there was some disagreement about what CD Projekt Red meant in other parts of the discussion.

Cyberpunk 2077 still doesn't have a firm release date, or even a release window, but we can look forward to its eventual launch without wondering if it will be littered with microtransactions. In an interview with Polish investment site Strefa Inwestorow (translation via TechRaptor), he said he wanted the game to be "commercially even more significant" than The Witcher 3, and some fans were anxious about what that meant.

Man, lots of CD Projekt RED news today, right? CD Projekt RED admitted that there have been some departures, however those departures were not endangering its projects.
