I mean I didn’t say I was gonna buy it, but sure. What I said was that even though publishers don’t need any defending, expecting free content because they finished making it is extremely unrealistic and silly. Seems like you’re misunderstanding how/why DLC is funded and produced to begin with, which may be creating the confusion.
Yeah this.That's not how DLC works. There is no time period after which DLC becomes part of the budgetary limits under which the original game was produced. It is a separate entity produced under a separate budget with separate revenue expectations. Sure, packaged releases with baked-in DLC exist, but these are generally either a second or third release within a given region in an attempt to encourage late adoption, or games with such poor expectations that they don't think they can attract an audience without taking a loss.
