EA will bring back Mircotransactions, Star Wars Battlefront 2 is under performing

Wall Street reporter, Sarah E Needleman is reporting that because EA's Star Wars Battlefront 2 only sold 9M copies of the game (1M fewer then they forecasted).

Gamespot is reporting:
Additionally, Jorgensen told WSJ that Battlefront II will re-introduce microtransactions "in the next few months." EA removed microtransactions from Battlefront II just before the game's public release in the wake of significant blowback from the community.

"Going forward, we believe that live services that include optional digital monetization, when done right, provide a very important element of choice that can extend and enhance the experience in our games," EA said. "We're committed to continually working with our players to deliver the right experience in each of our games and live services."

Personally I think the reason Battlefront 2 didn't sell well (if 9M is not enough) is because of microtransaction. But hey I'm only the customer. EA will show us that bringing back microtransacton, "When done right" will get more people to buy their game(s) [sic]
