What annoys me is that they spent development time that could have been used on making the game better/more polished/less buggy for release and do this instead to try to wring a few more bucks out of people. The more successful this tactic is, the more it encourages developers to spend more time on DLC stuff during the "normal" development cycle. The percentage is going to go nowhere but up.

Of course the pirated version will have everything including the DLC characters available on day one.

Do I need to make a damn website explaining how the final stages of software devlopment, particularly software going on consoles, actually works. People seem to be under this misconception that developers are just tooling away making shit for a game up until they personally hand it off to people at midnight release parties.

Literally months before a game hits the shelves, all new development on a game completely stops. The majority of time spent fixing bugs and making sure a game passes TCR is done by programmers. The majority of designers and artists, the content creators, can continue to develop new content for future DLC, even in some cases having it ready to go on day one.

And that doesn't even appear to be the case here. They're talking about content that will be released months after the game launches.
