The upcoming Obsidian RPG called Fantasy which is currently developed by Private Division Indie Label a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive will have no microtransactions. It was confirmed in a forum post by Obsidian (who are licensing the creation of the RPG) that confirmed that there will be “no microtransactions, of any kind, in our game”. They also added (talking about Private Division studios) “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. 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”.
This is big news as the RPG has the potential to be very popular and the fact that there is going to be no microtransactions is a big thing in 2018 where microtransactions are present in pretty much all video games and if this announcement works to boost the sales of the game other game developers may start to remove microtransactions from their games too. Obsidian is likely to be complete sometime in 2019 despite rumors it will be released in 2018.
