CD Projekt Red's financial results conference today featured a pile of number talking but during the Q&A stage managed to squeeze out some Cyberpunk 2077 info from Adam Kiciński. These bits include multiplayer, vertical movement and more.

DISCLAIMER: Cyberpunk questions start past 56th minute in the video above.

Adam Kiciński let slip a few more details about Cyberpunk 2077 during the conference, and one that caught my eye in particular was his mention of ''3D movement'' in the game, which can be seen at 59:44 in the video. Flight is all but confirmed at this point, since flying cars were seen even in the trailer from 2013. There was no mention of vertical movement by the player character alone so there is no evidence of parkour or Batman's grapnel gun yet.

On the topic of player character, Kiciński also mentioned that unlike in the Witcher series, your character will not be ''predefined''. This an actual confirmation that our first few hours with the game will be spent on character creation. Let's just hope it's that good. By extension, this also means that our characters will have different classes.

Kiciński once again made a point to not incorporate microtransactions in Cyberpunk 2077 and confirmed that we will only pay ''once'' for ''many many hours of wonderful gameplay''. When asked about other trends to maximise profits, such as jumping onto the battle royale bandwagon or releasing their current or future games for Nintendo Switch, Kiciński stated none of that is planned.

While unable to confirm whether the game will be available for the new generations of consoles due to them not being announced yet, it is not excluded that Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on platforms other than PC, Xbox One and PS4. Kiciński stated the game is technologically advanced enough to ''interface'' well with the possible future generations of PlayStation and Xbox.

Multiplayer will not be present in the game at launch as CD Projekt Red's focus is on delivering a great single player experience, but online features might be added at a later point.
