PC To Welcome More Free-To-Play Games, Console To Follow?

By  | 

The PC gaming scene is huge in terms of revenue for game developers and it now looks like making free games will offer more profits than releasing a paid title.

Titles like CS:GO, DOTA 2, League of Legends, Fortnite Battle Royale and many others are all free to play and they are the games that boasts the biggest active number of gamers at a single time.

With volume already in the hands, the developers will then introduce some creative purchasable contents to make money from their free games and this is turning out to be a great financial move.

It was confirmed earlier today that PC F2P microtransactions have doubled in revenue since 2012 and the numbers are climbing at a rapid pace.

At this rate, we can expect more online-focussed PC video games to adopt the F2P setup. The only question here is that will such a technique work out in the console environment?
