Borderlands 3: Penny-Pinching 2K Won’t Be In Practice?

By  | 

The past few years have witnessed a number of game developers losing their credibility for forcing microtransactions on gamers worldwide. The worst bit about it is that loot boxes were enforced on AAA titles hence ruining the entire experience for the average gamers.

With that in mind, it is completely understandable why many are fearful that Borderlands 3 may become a nest of loot boxes and microtransactions. It doesn’t help with 2K being all quiet in regards to Borderland 3.

The game itself is pending to turn into a production title but the fears are loud and clear. We personally share the same worry but when scoping more into it, there are fewer chances for Borderlands 3 to get ruined by microtransactions.

Think about it. Borderlands really is Gearbox’s only real success in the last few years hence they are unlikely to risk everything just to earn an extra dime through microtransactions in Borderlands 3. The best outcome is the push for payable DLCs and nothing more than that.

    Given they never “sold” keys and that Randy Pitchford said ” I am generally very much against predatory monetization schemes in F2P games for consumable goods and even more so against them in premium games. I tend to oppose such techniques both as an artist and creator and also as a customer and a gamer.”
    It think its safe to say they aren’t fans of the microtransactions.
