The spicy ESRB rating published today for Cyberpunk 2077 included a mention of “in-game purchases” which may have raised some eyebrows.
Considering that CD Projekt RED always expressed a firm stance against microtransactions in the game, the mention certainly sounds off, so Twinfinite reached out to the studio directly to seek clarification on the issue.
A CD Projekt RED representative explained that the “in-game purchases” descriptor is now required for games that may receive expansions in the future.
Since we already know that the game will receive expansions after its launch, as mentioned in the latest investor conference call, this solves the mystery.
CD Projekt RED is planning a reveal event in June, so it’s likely that we’ll see more about the game then.
