Hartsman Speaks About the Future of MMOs

Forbes is featuring an interview with former Trion Worlds' developer Scott Hartsman. In it, Hartsman speaks about the future of MMOs, in particular the subscription model.

“The subscription model was a great way to keep everything paid when MMOs were a lifestyle choice, a hobby.  MMORPGS had more in common then with a game like golf,” says Hartsman.  “Now players simply aren’t willing to commit to the subscription model as large audiences.   Subscription models aren’t going away, but the fact is we’ve hit the cap on players looking to embrace the subscription model and free-to-play models have really opened up doors to a new audience.  Users don’t stay as long as they used to.”
