Good for indies like CD Project or small publishers. But if you are a big publisher, you CANNOT afford to make this expensive SP games any longer. And not because you cannot make money anymore with this product, but because your investor DEMANDS that you switch to F2P because there is a chance to make MORE money!
If I was a game publisher, why would I make a single stand alone title like "Watch Dogs" that probably cost 100 million to make when I can have a long term revenue stream like a free to play MMO....Crazy
Well, I'm sure that there are f2p games that have failed to recoup their investment.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
