Starbreeze Vows Never To Do A Free-To-Play Title

Everyone is talking about free-to-play games these days, and Crysis developer Crytek even says that it's dedicating its whole future to the business model. Not for Starbreeze.

Although the company is currently working on a game called Cold Mercury (which is apparently not free-to-play, but "cheap-to-play"), CEO Mikael Nermark told Edge, "We're never going to do free-to-play, because then you have to cater to everyone out there – that's costly and it's hard. We're probably going to go down the road of cheap to play. Would we go all out? No, I don't think I'm going to bet on just one business model."

Nermark has also previously re-iterated the company's commitment to triple-A game titles as well.
