Obsidian Promises No Microtransactions or Loot Boxes in Its Next Game
Last week, Fallout: New Vegas and South Park: The Stick of Truth developer Obsidian revealed its working on a new unnamed role-playing game under Take-Two Interactive's new indie publishing unit Private Division. Now, the studio is assuring fans the project won't include any loot boxes or microtransactions.
"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," Obsidian writes in a forum post. "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."
