Epic Games VP Mark Rein revealed that both Sony and Microsoft will be going the free-to-play way with their next generation consoles.
Speaking at the Game Horizon conference today, Rein said:
The next-gen consoles are going to be fully embracing the free-to-play and these IAP-type business models. So in case you don’t know that I’m putting that out there. Sony and Microsoft are both going heavily in that area.
When pressed on the matter, with Sony and Microsoft giving little examples of how they’ve embraced the model, Rein added:
Well, I’m telling you. I’m telling you what they’re telling developers.
I guess we’ll learn more at E3. Thanks JoyStiq.
