REPORT: next Battlefield will only have cosmetic microtransactions

A source indicated that EA does not want to repeat the SW scandal: Battlefront I

After confirming that there is a new Battlefield on the way, which would be inspired by World War II, the information related to the next installment of the series begins to take shape and, to avoid unnecessary controversy on sensitive issues, some details already they are being taken into account.

According to a report by Jason Schreier of Kotaku, some people who are close to the development of the new Battlefield, developed by DICE, informed him that the new release of the franchise will move away from the system of microtransactions and loot boxes that so much harmed Star Wars: Battlefront II. In that sense, the sources assured that Electronic Arts does not want to go through such a situation again and is taking all the necessary precautions to avoid it. In this regard, one of the sources said: "no one will do anything that is pay-to-win anymore. We will not take the controversy with the loot boxes lightly."

As time passes, the information related to the new release of Battlefield gives some clues about what we will see and so far there are details that refer to the name of the title, Battlefield V and its events that will take place in World War II. The report cites a US Gamer publication stating that the next Battlefield will only have cosmetic microtransactions, but according to sources, it is an issue that has not been concluded. However, the same informant confirmed that it is a fact that everything we saw in terms of microtransactions and loot boxes in SW: Battlefront II will be changed.

What do you think about EA's apparent reaction to microtransactions and loot box systems?
