At least their keeping the MTX out of their real games and instead milking a different, much more stupid audience of gamers. Still bad for the industry overall tho.
More of a reason for publishers to stop making real games, and instead invest a few dollars (& ultimately man power) into a '"Free2play" game that makes 10x as much profit as a traditional AAA title. It's why we got the atrocity known as "Gears Funko pop". Instead of focusing all your investment and man power onto Gears 5, they decided to throw in a mobile game that has the potential to outprofit Gears 5.
Mobile market needs to die quick, otherwise we're going to run out of good games.
