Last week’s announcement that Perfect World Entertainment would sign on as a publisher for Gigantic was good news for fans of the MOBA, but it also leads to plenty of questions. What will change with the game’s new publisher, especially in terms of monetization? Staff for both Motiga and Perfect World Entertainment recently took to Reddit to answer questions about the transition, so you don’t need to wonder about it too much.
Monetization is something that still doesn’t seem to be finalized, but it isn’t meant to be predatory or overbearing, with player retention serving as a first goal for the game’s development.
Our focus as PWE is to help bring Gigantic to market and make it accessible to the players. To pull back to the curtain some more, our goal with Gigantic and the launch is very strongly focused on fun. Let’s partner with Motiga to continue the development of something that we as gamers in the company would be proud of and want to play. Monetization will make sense for the game. Our goal is to not have that be predatory to the core values of the game.
There’s also no need to worry if you’ve been enjoying the game on Xbox One instead, as the partnership with Microsoft remains intact. Players and fans can look forward to more open testing on the title planned for later in summer.
