CD Projekt Red has always been a friend to gamers and due to that…gamers have always had their backs.
When someone mentions CD Projekt Red, I immediately associated it with the Witcher series. I can honestly say that my love for role-playing games began from the first instalment of The Witcher. It only continued to expand from there to games like Dragon Age and Mass Effect.
The strange thing is, I can’t recall how the game came into my possession. At the time I knew nothing of ‘The Witcher’ franchise nor anything about the publisher. However, it didn’t stop me from drowning myself into it completely. Everything about it was a new experience, and it opened up my eyes to a new genre of games.
Since then, I’ve been instantly hooked, and I’ve bought every iteration of the game. Enhanced, Collectors, Game of the year, you name it, and I’d probably have a few copies on the PC and consoles.
No, I’m not insane. CD Projekt Red are the guys who taught me about going against Digital rights management (DRM), and I agree with it. Sure, it’s a double-edged sword, but piracy will always be there, and it’s never going to go away.
So instead of fighting with piracy by restricting gamers, CD Projekt Red decided to work with gamers instead. They decided to believe that if you give gamers what they need, they’ll return in kind. And so, I’ve been one of those gamers who have been supporting them by buying their games on any platform.
Thus, gamers have enabled them to create The Witcher game franchise to such an extent with a loyal fanbase.
CD Projekt Red, making its mark.
CD Projekt Red understands the concept of Quid Pro Quo quite well. It was abundantly clear when they decided to give players 16 free DLC content for the Witcher 3 game. Even though the story expansions were paid DLCs, no one can disagree that it was worth the money for the amount of content it provided within.
Fully aware that this method works, Cd Project Red will be providing Cyberpunk 2077 with same free DLC treatment as the Witcher 3. I believe it’s fair to assume that there will be paid story DLCs for Cyberpunk, but their free DLC will be just as fruitful based on what we have seen in the Witcher.
I believe Cyberpunk 2077 will be the next big thing for the newer generation of gamers. It might hopefully spur more developers to create more role-playing games instead of the standard battle royale that seems to dominate the gaming industry currently.
