‘Fans are hungry for more’
Shortly after the release of The Taken King, rumors started coming out that Bungie would supplement Destiny‘s new content with cosmetic microtransactions, and would refrain from going back to the underwhelming premium paid expansion model. According to Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg, it looks like that has been debunked.
When asked by an analyst regarding Destiny‘s future, he stated, “We had a full year of expansions to the game that have been very well received and sold quite well. More recently, you’ve seen us introduce smaller, in-game purchases that allow people to customize their experience and express themselves; those have been very well received and have sold well also. I think we’ve already shown that DLC and microtransactions can co-exist and that our community is hungry for more great content.”
He stopped short of actually announcing anything, but odds are, Activision is going to to make money by any means. Get ready for some more underwhelming expansions until the beta period is over Destiny 2 drops.
