what? theyre not slaughtering anything..it makes perfect sense..the cash cow is in the mtx of ultimate team..not the game itself. with this, they release the same shit every year, no stupid costs into physical versions, no fees, just straight up f2p bullshit with mtx. if anything, it should make them more money.
Because F2P mobile phones make a BILLION in one year, something like Sony Music game Fate/Grand Order that made in one year over one billion and probably passed 5 billion mark right now. More market penetration = more MTX = more money.
