Diablo 4 may be getting cosmetic microtransactions according to lead designer Joe Shely. The question came up as part of a larger conversation regarding Diablo 4’s monetization plans.
During BlizzCon 2019, Twitch streamer Quin69 spoke with Shely following the Diablo 4 reveal at Blizzard’s annual fan event (via PCGamesN). During their lengthy conversation, Quin brought up the question of how Blizzard will monetize Diablo 4.
“Diablo 4 will be available as a base game, and… we’re going to have expansions. You also will be able to acquire cosmetics in the game.”
