GaaS Subnautica 2 This Year?

GameWatcher translates details from Krafton's financial reporting on plans for Subnautica 2, the upcoming submerged action sequel from Unknown Worlds. A report last year said this should be expected in 2025, but this latest update says the game will launch this year with co-op support as one of those games as a service that everyone loves so much:
Subnautica 2 is being developed with Unreal Engine 5, adopting a Game as a Service model. Players will explore an "oceanic world in stunning stylized graphics.".

The report indicates that the game will feature a single-player mode, or players can team up with friends for a 4-player co-op session to "uncover the mysteries on an entirely new alien planet."

Subnautica 2 is scheduled for release in 2024. Currently, details are scarce, with no screenshots or gameplay footage available yet.

Hah I am curious how they wanna GaaSify a game like this. It will be pretty funny to see.

Quite easy. You can only dive to a depth of 1000 meters with the base game. You need to buy the 'Dive Deeper' DLC to be able to dive beyond 1000 meters and the 'Dive Even Deeper' DLC to dive beyond 2000m and finally the 'Mariana DLC' to be able to dive all the way to the deepest depths of the ocean.

And if you want to be able to pick up anything of value at depth then you need to also buy the 'Grab shit at depth' DLC and the 'Floodlight DLC' to be able to even see shit. You also need the 'Exotic Fishies' DLC if you want to see more than just blackness at depth.

Dude... I would monetize the shit out of this game if it was GaaS. So many possibilities for milking, it's not even funny. You could have hundreds of DLCs for fishies alone and every level of depth could require its own DLCs to unlock the next depth level. And we haven't even started on DLCs for submarine mods, tuning, skins, tools, weapons/harpoons or anything of that kind.
