Remember that one time
CFO Blake Jorgensen
pissed off the entire internet (except for Beau
) by intimating that the gaming giant would be building microtransactions into all of its upcoming games?
Well, forget that, because apparently that's not what he meant.
"I made a statement in the conference along the lines of 'we'll have microtransactions in our games' and the community read that to mean all our games," Jorgensen told Polygon
. "And that's really not true. All of our mobile games will have microtransactions in them, because almost all of them are going to a world where they are play for free."
Jorgensen goes on to say that EA will likely be putting in-house credit card processing and download support into all of its titles, but that doesn't necessarily mean a mass conversion to the microtransaction model.
