As Firaxis Games, the creator's of Civilization and the modern XCOM series, is owned by Take Two, I find the recent statement from Take Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick to be troubling for the series' futures. https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news...es_with_recurrent_consumer_spending_hooks.php So far, Civilization 6's DLC model has been a pretty standard season pass, even extending the amount of civs given in said pass. But what about Civilization 7 or even a new expansion? Do you think we'll have to worry about microtransactions and virtual currencies in future titles from Firaxis? What would that even look like? I could easy see charging players to bring back from the dead soldiers in XCOM or certain technologies hidden behind a pay wall. But I might be overly paranoid and Take Two just lets Firaxis do it's thing.
