Wildstar Pulled from Retailer Shelves Ahead of Its F2P Transition

by on April 15, 2015


According to an EB games employee, the retailer started taking Wildstar off shelves without any notice a few weeks ago. This decision comes in preparation for the MMO’s transition to a free-to-play model, where micro-transactions rule the place.

Wildstar already has in place a system to bypass the monthly subscription by paying with in-game currency, similar to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft Token.

While there’s nothing set in stone, it sure looks like Wildstar will be a F2P game anytime soon. But don’t get your hopes up until the official announcement comes in. Many MMO games benefited from the F2P model, and actually gained a lot more revenue than using the traditional subscription.
