They turned over almost £100m revenue in the 27 months to Nov 2018. They have a massive profit margin. I think they have like £50m+ cash on hand. NMS is basically printing money for them.Microtransactions?
I'm just wondering, they have to earn money somehow... seeing hub and all these (and past) updates, question comes to mind.
And no, I'm not pointing fingers or anything, just wondering about business side of the project. Hell, if somebody's earned the right to put microtransactions to the game, it's NMS.
I bet when this update hits they'll go back to the top of the Steam sales charts again. At this rate, they can easily justify putting out updates for free and eventually putting NMS on some kind of long term support when whatever their next project is comes out. Maybe in a few years they could put some cosmetic MTX in to break even on whatever running costs they have, but right now they are doing gangbusters.
