While EA took out all the microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II, it also mentioned that it will be back in some form or another eventually, Well, that might not be happening at all. Speaking at the 37th Nasdaq Investor Conference, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen mentioned that microtransactions might not be coming back to Battlefront II after all.
Clearly we are very focused on listening to the consumer and understanding what the consumer wants and that’s evolving constantly. But we’re working on improving the progression system. We turned the MTX off as an opportunity to work on the progression system inside the game. We’re continuing to do that. I think there’s an update this week and again next week..
Overtime we’ll address how we will want to bring the MTX either into the game or not and what form we will decide to bring it into.
If I had to wager a guess, it’s not really the microtransactions that gamers had an issue with, it’s the fact that progression is affected by it. If EA announced microtransactions into Battlefront II but it was for cosmetics only, I gather a lot of people would be OK with it.
Would you be OK if EA reintroduced microtransactions into Battlefront II but as cosmetics only? Or would you prefer that it’s not brought back at all?
