Carbine's Gaffney on Monetization

WildStar executive producer says players can "pay how they want to pay."

Last week, Carbine Executive Producer Jeremy Gaffney took some time to meet with several members of the UK WildStar fan site community--our own Gareth "Gazimoff" Harmer being one of them. You can check out Part 1 of Gaz's write-up posted earlier today right here, and stay right on the edge of your seat for Part 2 tomorrow!

But that's not the only reason Gaffney was in Brighton. He was there to take part in Develop - an industry conference for game developers. As part of the conference, Jeremy spoke with Develop13 in the video above about monetization.

Quite an interesting topic, considering that his own studios' game, WildStar, hasn't yet revealed its business model. 

Gaffney has talked about it being a "hybrid" previously, and in this interview remarked that fans can look forward to hearing about their plans in the "next month or so." Similar to Carbine's mantra of "play how you want to play," Gaffney says that players will also be able to "pay how they want to pay."

If you're even the least bit interested in WildStar, watch the 5 minute video and see if you can read anything between the tea leaves. Let us know what you find!
