Micro transactions in games are nothing new, but have evolved into overpaid models in recent years. Therefore, the tame means of voluntary use of additional real-life cash has become something that many find arrogant and something that is almost forced. Many publishers and developers are aware of this, so when the anticipated game won't show these additional options, they want to be clear and that's what the team behind Crackdown 3 are doing.
"We are not committed to [any post-launch plans] at this time, we are still experimenting with what should be done, "said Joseph Staten of Microsoft in an interview with Windows Central. "We see what people find fun, adjust balance and so on. We also see long-term hooks. We know that we don't want to go with microtransactions. We will not use the concept of stolen chests. There will be things that you can open, things that are getting cooler. Whether based on their rank, or based on the number of matches, we really are still playing with it. We have made hundreds of things to open. We can take it to many places. "

Since then, a massive reaction caused EA and DICE to rethink how this game was set up – removing the pay-to-win model completely and switching back to more voluntary features.
