GTA Online's Forever Expansion might be a blade in the back, originally designed as GTA V's Online Mode; Constant Content Creation Might Lead to Subscription Fee.
It's possible that if this one does well we might see another version which could have a sub or micro-transactions. Since it's basically an mmo with the constant development they need to continue to make money off it and box sales alone aren't enough generally.
Or they could start selling cosmetic items, like fancy hats. IMO, micro-transactions are much more likely than a subscription. That is the way the industry has been trending.
as long as it's not pay to win then I'm ok with that
I agree. I can see them selling future hats and cosmetic stuff (maybe even weapons) for a small fee with the option to buy packs of things (like LBP does)
It's basically like a free-to-play, no subscription MMO. This is going to be awesome. Except its limited to 16 people lol.
But it's not free-to-play. I assume you need to have a copy of GTAV. I may be wrong. If it doesn't start out that way, I could see it become a free-to-play service with pay scenarios like mentioned above.
Oh right, I don't know why I put free-to-play, but you know what I mean, MMO's are always expanding and since all you need is GTA V, its sort of like a f2p.
