An artificial intelligence (AI) will deliberately tamper with your online gameplay as you scramble for more in-game items to win. The same AI will manipulate your state of mind at every step of your game to guide you towards more micro-transactions. Nothing in-game is truly fixed-rate. The game maps out your home, and cross-references it with your online footprint, to have a socio-economic picture of you, so the best possible revenue model, and anti buyer's remorse strategy can be implemented on you. These, and more, are part of the dystopian nightmare that takes flight if a new AI-powered online game revenue model is implemented in MMO games of the near future.

I really like how they track your password hashes for increased ability to link you to different accounts online... never mind the wifi sonar building a map of your room and using the mic to see when you get distracted and upsell you junk when you're not busy walking the dog...
Anthem, the game that is going to be published by EA?
(refrains for a microsecond to not say that nobody saw that coming)
It is set to be released in late 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Future game and gaming PC purchases will be fundamentally dead.
Hyper inflation due to mining on GPUs, rotating and artificial price gauging due to contrived RAM/SSD/HDD shortages and CPU+ backdoors on the hardware front and continued manipulative day one DLC and the onslaught of microtransactions on the gaming front will have long lasting effects. Let's see what the future will reveal, most likely the consequences will be severe and long lasting.
