Last week, we put up a poll asking MMOBomb readers which game(s) they would most like to see go free-to-play. You responded, and the results were pretty evenly spread out among a handful of games. Maybe it was the header image we used for the poll article, or maybe it’s all the coverage we’ve given it, but in the end, Overwatch came out on top, by a narrow margin.
Blizzard’s competitive team shooter launches on May 24, and its long period of uncertainty got many people thinking it would be free-to-play right out of the gate. As a result, it garnered 20% of the vote, narrowly edging out Daum Games’ Black Desert Online (18%), another game that was thought to be a lock for a F2P business model.
A pair of well-established subscription-based MMORPGs, Final Fantasy XIV (13.5%) and World of Warcraft (12.7%), were next, followed by The Elder Scrolls Online, with 10%. No other game received more than 5% of the votes cast. Here are the full results:
So, how did the poll match up with your personal wishes?
