Destiny to feature new 'monetization model' according to Activision CV

Evidence of possible micro-transactions

An Activision Senior Director working on Destiny has listed 'monetization modeling' as a current project on his LinkedIn profile.


The listing, which was unearthed by SuperAnnuation, suggests that micro-transactions may appear in Destiny, which will release for current and next-gen consoles in 2014.

The LinkedIn page belongs to Senior Director of Product Management for Activision, Ryan Wener.

While the term 'monetization modeling' is too vague to safely draw conclusions, Activision has recently introduced micro-transactions to Black Ops II. Meanwhile, the case for micro-transactions is frequently defended by industry spokespeople including Cliff Bleszinski and an EA executive.

A new batch of concept art for Destiny was released earlier this week.
