No micro-transactions in Titanfall, studio claims it’s “not us”
One of the most awaited exclusive game for Xbox One, Ryse: Son of Rome, has included micro-transactions the developers confirmed yesterday. This thing upset a couple of hardcore people who are frustrated by noobies advancing in several games using real currency.
We wondered if those micro-transaction will be present in other games too, and today we got the answer. Respawn, Titanfall’s developer, revealed today that they will not include any tipe of micro-transactions in their new game and that this method doesn’t represent them.
“I don’t think we’ve really gotten that far,” Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe said.
“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.
“This has been such a journey that I think we’re just like, ‘Okay, get this one out the door and then we’ll worry about everything else’.”
“I don’t know specifically what is in the Battlepacks, sadly,” she says, asked if Respawn could adopt a similar model. “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.”
Titanfall will be releasing next spring on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC and will not have any kind of micro-transactions. Yey!
