It will be interesting to see how this plays out as it could change the gaming industry.

For the better, hopefully.

My guess is they will just start charging more for games or make them shorter and do season pass stuff with new content and cosmetics.

Rather than loot boxes they could just go for something like battle passes or smaller packs of proper DLC. There are plenty of ways to monetize a game that don't negatively impact the design of the game like loot boxes do.

Loot boxes themselves aren't really a problem, they have been around for years now. The problem is monetised loot boxes. Paying real money for less than a 1% chance to win something is why I hate them.

The old Dragon Ball Z Budokai games used to have loot boxes, all I had to do was play the game, earn in game money, and buy capsules to unlock new moves, stages and costumes. This was actually fun and exciting, what we have now is the complete opposite. These days I have to either pay for loot boxes or grind for hours upon hours just to buy one of them with in game money.
