The mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas was a devastating tragedy. Amidst the debates about gun control, terrorism, and the shooter’s motive, there is another unresolved issue: In addition to dozens of bands and musical acts, the three-day country music concert was staffed by hundreds of employees: Live Nation organizers, event producers, production crew, instrument technicians, hair and makeup artists, ticket takers, merchandise vendors, security guards, bartenders and more.

Watch out Warzone and Fortnite: Ubisoft is coming after free-to-play

Article | May 17, 2021

Ubisoft announced last week that it is adding specific focus on free-to-play, alongside its AAA catalogue.

The focus on in-game spending and particularly on the cosmetic, rather than the progress-related, parts will be the key revenue component. As games become less finite and more perpetual (consumer goal is less about ‘finishing them’ and more and ‘playing/spending time in them’), the opportunity to monetise needs that stem from this perpetual engagement (e.g. socialising or expression) starts to outweigh the mere monetisation of access to a packaged product. Simultaneously, free-to-play games also act as a powerful marketing driver for AAA releases as they come out, as well as streamability and word of mouth for the franchise.
