No microtransactions for Titanfall, says Respawn.
The upcoming Respawn game Titanfall is getting a lot of hype; it may be being published by EA, a company that views games as platforms and likes to monetize everything, but Respawn has flatly put the idea of microtransactions in their upcoming title out of the question.
“I don’t think we’ve really gotten that far,” Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe told VideoGamer. “We’ve been so singularly focussed on creating this game and getting it out. We’re a small team and we just go project by project. It’s something that we’ll have to think about later on. Although for this one, I know we got asked a lot early on, like, will [we] be going near microtransactions, are you going to do that? That’s not us.”
I guess it’s admirable that Respawn isn’t succumbing to crap like that that clearly ruins games; it’s also good EA has given them that kind of creative freedom.
