Titanfall Will See Possibility Of Additional Content Post-Launch
Respawn Entertainment is reiterating their refusal to “nickle and dime” customers with microtransactions.
Heppe clarified that at the moment, the studio is working on getting the game out before considering where they might bring it in the future. Heppe mentioned the possibility of additional content later in the game’s lifespan, but maintained that these would not be delivered in the form of microtransactions.
“I don’t know specifically what is in the Battlepacks, sadly,” she says, asked if Respawn could adopt a similar model to Battlefield 4′s use of microtransactions. “It’s not out of the question that we would have follow-up content but I don’t know that we would do it the same as they [DICE] do it.”
It’s good news for anyone following developments at Gamescom, where Battlefield 4, Ryse: Son of Rome, and The Elder Scrolls Online were all confirmed to feature some form of microtransaction system.
Titanfall is out for the PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360 in Spring 2014.
