As per Gameinfinitus, Larian Studios’ founder and CEO, Swen Vincke, is not entirely pleased with the industry’s potential shift towards subscription-based models. This comes in response to a statement made by Philippe Tremblay, the director of subscriptions at Ubisoft, who suggested that gaming audiences need to “get comfortable” with the idea of not owning their games for subscription services to thrive.

Vincke believes that whatever the future of gaming holds, content will always be the most crucial element. He argues that it will be significantly more challenging to obtain high-quality content if subscription models become the dominant distribution method, as a select group would then control what gets greenlit and released. The Larian Studios CEO maintains that the current model of direct-to-player content delivery is the correct approach, as it allows for the existence of idealism, which he believes can lead to groundbreaking achievements, even if it occasionally results in failures.
