Hell it’s what makes that “I don’t like going to bat for giant corporations but imma do it here” bit silly because what are we “going to bat” for? Someone saying “this small thing feels weird whatever I’m buying”? Is that how low we set the bar?
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.
