It's nothing but a money grab.
Because, simply, the cost of it would make the base game out of peoples range. As I said before, PC games today are £30 in UK... over a decade ago, PC games were £30. So, prices have not increased in a decade... 10 years, whilst production costs have.
So, either they include the content and charge £50-£60... or they keep the base game price the same and let consumers decide if they want the DLC or not.
