Colorful MMO Wildstar looks like it’s going to go free-to-play. I could have written that headline months ago, when the game first launched, but one supposes it had to get to this point on its own. An anonymous developer recently wrote on SteamDB about NCsoft’s plan to take the game free-to-play in August ahead of a release in China. And while nothing’s confirmed, none of this should come as a remote surprise, either: not only have Wildstar’s numbers been less than stellar, this is the same story we’ve seen with every other major subscription MMO in recent years. Whether Star Wars: The Old Republic, The Elder Scrolls Online or Wildstar, the subscription-based MMO just continues to look unsustainable.
