Lol, none of that post is even remotely sensible. ED has been a gold, silver or bronze selling game on steam every single year. ED sold millions of copies. There are no LEPs on xb1 or PS either. LEP/Alpha/beta is less than 2% of the playerbase. Calling that s 'very large proportion' is just mental . They are working on a large new expansion, which is no secret as its financials show.I agree with you. And I will go one step further as to why they’re pushing the transactions tour over actual development.
Yes the transaction store probably generates some reasonable amount of revenue for minimal possible effort. But as to why they’re not providing additional content, I’d say it’s because the number of people that paid for the life extension pass and alpha and beta access is possibly a very large proportion of the actual total player base.
Which means that if they even did develop decent DLC, it would mostly be played by people who had already paid for it, leaving them little incentive to do more than just fulfil their legal obligations when th an MVP.
There is no evil conspiracy, you just can't wait till next year so you make weird stuff up.
