Amy Hennig was surprised that EA decided not to include Microtransactions in Jedi: Fallen Order

When Electronic Arts closed the study Visceral Games and canceled the game Star Wars in which they were working in 2017, one of the main reasons was because the executives believed that the games of a player were not profitable. So the announcement that Jedi: Fallen Order will not have microtransactions of any kind, has surprised both locals and strangers, including Amy Hennig who was working on the canceled project.

The game of Visceral Games had the code name of Ragtag and it was planned to be a one-player experience based on history. It is true that much of the modern video game market is based on online experiences, however during 2018 there were several cases that contradicted what was said by EA, as were the cases of God of War, Spider-Man, Dragon Quest XI, Red Dead Redemption II and recently Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Amy Hennig she was the project director Ragtag and left the company shortly after its cancellation. We remember her as one of the creators of the series Uncharted. Last weekend he offered a conference at a developer event called Reboot Develop, where the Eurogamer portal asked him what was his opinion about the recently revealed Jedi: Fallen Order and about its lack of microtransactions. She commented the following:

"It's weird! … I mean, it comes directly from the EA Star Wars account on Twitter, so it's certainly part of the plan, but do not know if you're implicitly referencing previous comments that came up after they killed our game?

There are many changes in the industry all the time. During my time at EA, we went back and forth about how the corporation wanted it to be published. Everyone was trying to find the right path. I also think that the Respawn game benefits in large part because the development started before they were acquired. It's a protected property and Vince [Zampella] he makes sure of that – because he's part of EA's executive team, he can protect Respawn's interests. "

She also commented that she is not sure why EA She changed her mind, because when she worked on the Ragtag project, that would never have been acceptable. So maybe it's the strategy change test in Electronic Arts.

Without a doubt, they are very interesting comments. He closed his interview saying that he expects the game of Respawn Entertainment It's going very well
