They might leave MMOs altogether. You have a lot of MOBAs that are hugely successful and entirely F2P if you don't need every costume / to unlock every hero. (LoL, SMITE, etc.) You have a lot of survival games that are pay once and then play forever (Minecraft, Ark, Rust, etc.) You also have some other hugely popular buy once play for free titles like PUBG.AriesTiger said:Where will low income gamers game hop to then after this "is done." Serious, legit question. There's not much left for them to hop to. (Imagines a tin of mexican jumping beans lol.)
Based on the Trend MMOs are dying out entirely. New MMOs are very scarce, almost entirely dried up in the west and even the asian ports are getting canceled with greater and greater frequency. That's why sites like MMORPG want to expand the definition to cover things that simply aren't MMOs. If you look at the MMOs list here, Diablo 3 is listed.klash2def said:Based on the trend, the Future of MMO is going to be on the console. Look at whats happening. So many MMOs getting console ports, new ones being developed for console, games having MMO features on the console. We will look back in history one day and say Destiny 1 was the catalyst for all of that. Our grandchildren won't play MMOs on PC. MMO on PC is dead far as we know it. Mobile and Console is the way forward for the Genre. I'm not mad at it as long as they are good games.
I let EQ, SWG, WoW, DAoC etc go long ago. Time to move on.
