In an interview with Kikizo, Kevin O’Hara of SOE announced that the MMO Shooter The Agency will not use a monthly subscription payment model.
He isn’t sure of the exact way the game will bring in revenue but it sounds like it might be a combination of micro-transactions such as premium items and companies paying for in-game advertisements, which are not all bad if they feel part of the games setting.
“We’re acutely aware that shooter players are not used to paying monthly fees, so I doubt we’ll go for an outright $15 a month … So we’re checking out Free Realms to see how they’re going to do with their micro-transactions, and we might incorporate some of that. We’ll definitely have some ad revenue models.”
