I would suspect this monthly pack is a hint at what’s to come. In-game currencies and F2P shite. I bet everyone with an active subscription was well thrilled with this one.
Oh but guys! I hear people say on twitter, they’ve SAID they’re not going to change anything. IGN is totally going to just let humble run autonomously, they’re just going to altruistically “support” humble bundle with no intentions of getting anything out of it.
in theory that would be possible, (without the “not getting anything out of it”), since they could just let humble run their own stuff, and just cash in the profits as their new owners
i think the main issue is, whenever stuff like this happens in the business world, no matter how good a company is, or profitable, prior to purchase, the new overlords never just let things go on with “business as usual”…
people just can’t resist sticking their fingers in other peoples cookie dough
IGN bought the remnants of GameTrailers.com last year. Defy Media shut GameTrailers down and everyone thought all of their content was going to be lost forever. In my opinion, IGN treated the GT property with respect. They uploaded a massive catalog of GT original content onto the YouTube channel for everyone to enjoy and now they upload actual game trailers to it. I’m willing to give IGN a chance because they’ve treated one of my favorite properties well. Obviously I initially wish Humble was not sold to IGN, but I also can’t look into the future with my crystal ball so I’m not going to pretend that I know what’s going to happen.
