Easy money makes you lazy. EA is only interested in games they can loot-crate-ify, because loot crates are easy money.
And the man who INVENTED them? CEO of EA. Witness!
With no new IP’s, EA shuttering all their innovative studios, and cancelling a Star Wars game by AMY HENNIG, it’s clear the company has bet its future on loot crates. I suspect it’ll prove to be a bad bet.
