How will Minecraft Earth be profitable? 

Let's face it, with any big game, revenue needs to be seen to continue development. While Mojang has announced that Minecraft Earth will be free-to-play and have no loot boxes, what does that mean? 

How do you think Mojang and Microsoft will see revenue? 

Some speculation on our part: 

  • End-Users Pay: They'll probably sell skins or other cosmetics for us to use! 

  • Sponsor Supported: Permanent or limited-time advertising in the game will promote certain products. Imagine buying a life-sized pixelized Master Chief to display at your pad! 

  • Both: Will it be the best (or worst) of both worlds?
