Obsidian Denounces Loot Boxes and Microtransactions

Obsidian announces that their upcoming RPG will not contain any sort of loot boxes or microtransactions, taking a proactive approach to decrying these features that have a attracted a lot of negative attention and controversy lately (thanks DSOGaming). So now we know more about what the game won't have than what it will. What we do know is that it will be an RPG, it will have a title, it will be published through Take-Two's new label Private Division, and that development is being led by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky. Here's word:

We’re extremely excited about our upcoming RPG, and we know you are too. We wish we could tell you all about it right now… but we’re going to hold off until the time is right. What we did want to talk about was a question a lot of you have been raising: “Will this upcoming game feature any lootboxes or other microtransactions?”

The answer is simply: “no.” No microtransactions, of any kind, in our game.

We also wanted to say a word about our partnership with Private Division, our publisher on this title. Far from “pushing” us to put anything -- microtransactions or otherwise -- into our game, Private Division has been incredibly supportive of our vision, our creative freedom, and the process by which we work to make RPGs. They have been fantastic partners, and we are extremely excited to work with them through release, to put what we know is going to be an amazing game into as many hands as possible.

As always, thank you so much for your support. We know we couldn’t do what we do without our fans, and we want you to know that we put you guys first in every decision we make.

I agree with the sentiment! But I hope this doesn't hurt their pitches when they go for their next contract... or is all that behind them now? Or maybe that kind of contract isn't one worth taking.
