Our primary goal is to make triple-A free-to-play games for the world market and transition entirely to that.
A whole new batch of Dust 514 shots were released today. The pictures show off what is available in the game’s beta and the final box art. The free-to-play shooter’s beta is going live for PlayStation Plus members tomorrow. The new beta phase is the first to link itself up with the EVE Online universe on PC, a huge feature in the final game.
Console developers are starting to realise that as well, that unless they make accommodations or think about changing their own business model they’re going to quickly go the way of the dinosaurs.
Commander & Conquer is set to go free-to-play! Here is the debut trailer for the new Commander & Conquer which is set to come out on PC in 2013. The game is one of many on the PC that is following the popular free-to-play model. One of the most exciting bits of this announcement is that it uses the Frostbite 2 engine! The game was originally revealed as Commander & Conquer Generals 2. Register for the beta here.
There’s a place for social and freemium, but it’s not going to replace the business models that are out there.
At least 10 million MAUs indefinitely, with upside to perhaps 50 million.
Right now we are in the transitional phase of our company, transitioning from packaged goods games into an entirely free-to-play experience.
I am totally 100% confident – I will bet large amounts of money – that we will have, in the next few years, a free-to-play equivalent of Skyrim.
