The games have microtransactions. All we know.
Zenimax Media, who currently own Bethesda Softworks and id Software, also has a studio devoted entirely to making free to play games in Austin, Texas. Battlecry Studios is in fact their newest studio – so new in fact, that they’re trying to fill out as many positions as possible for working on upcoming AAA free to play titles.
Currently, Battlecry is looking for an Environmental Artist, Senior/Lead Environmental Artist, VFX Artist, Character Artist, Senior Technical Designer, Senior Systems Designer, Systems Designer, Associate Multiplayer Level Designer, Tools Engineer, Gameplay Engineer, Senior Server Database Engineer, Senior Server Engineer, Senior Network and Systems Administrator, Senior Concept Artist and Monetization/Systems Designer.
You know, among other positions of course.
Those interested can always head over the Battlecry’s jobs page to apply. The last position indicates that micro-transactions will indeed play a role in their upcoming titles. With Rich Vogel, who worked on Ultima Online and Star Wars Galaxies on board, heading the studio it will be interesting to see what shape it takes.
