In recent days there has been much talk about the phenomenon of loot boxes, as reported a few days ago for the case Fifa 20 vs France , and on the stage of the annual Says Summit, the CEO of Epic Games Tim Sweeney wanted to have his say on the topic in general:
“We have to ask ourselves, as an industry, what do we want to become? Do we want to be like Las Vegas ... or do we want to be respected as creators of products that buyers can trust? I think in the future, we will see more and more developers abandoning loot boxes, and we developers should be reluctant to create experiences where the outcome can be influenced by the money spent. Loot boxes use all the characteristics of risk, except the possibility of making money win. "
