Ex-Blizzard Boss Mike Ybarra Says Players Should Be Able To ‘Tip’ Devs After Completing A Game


Mike Ybarra, the former president of Blizzard Entertainment, has suggested that players should be able to tip developers after completing a game.

When I beat a game, there are some that just leave me in awe of how amazing the experience was. I’ve often thought ‘I wish I could give these folks another $10 or $20 because it was worth more than my initial $70 and they didn’t try to nickel and dime me every second’.

Games like HZD, GoW, RDR2, BG3, Elden Ring, etc. I know $70 is already a lot, but it’s an option at the end of the game I wish I had at times. Some games are that special. I know most will dislike this idea. 🙂 BTW, I realize we are tired of “tipping” in everything else – but I view this different from a pressure to tip type scenario many face and give feedback on.

Ybarra announced his departure from Blizzard back in January amidst a series of major layoffs at Microsoft-owned studios, including Activision Blizzard, which also resulted in the cancellation of Blizzard’s new survival game.
