Question of the week: I'm tired of companies making programs that are copying steam when they could save resources and time, by simply making deal with steam. Instead they release half baked often broken copies that cost peoples patience and time, when games their suppose to have on do not work because of the program malfunctioning.

Halo's going to Russia as F2P because Russia is really tolerant of lazy P2W models while still firmly being region that loves and is into Western games.

China/Asia isn't as big on Western franchises, so it would be harder to get traction for the IP.

NA/EU isn't as tolerant of P2W models, so they have fewer monetization options and less "pain points" to drive sales.

It's not at all surprising to see them release it in Russia only.
