MultiVersus Developers Says Selling Players Extra Lives Was A "Bug"

In MultiVersus, players progressing through the game’s story mode were met with microtransactions upon death, offering the option to refill their lives. While this practice was clearly a greedy move by the developers, the situation worsened when they attempted to deflect criticism by claiming the microtransactions were a “bug.”

MultiVersus “bug”

The bug was first brought to light by players on Reddit who were lamenting the future of gaming – and who can blame them, with microtransactions appearing even in single-player story modes.

The Reddit post was met with widespread agreement, condemning the developers’ move as predatory. Shortly thereafter, the developers took to Twitter/X, claiming that the microtransactions were not an intended feature of the game

I and almost everyone else can see through this. Microtransactions with text and buttons don’t just appear; someone has to manually put them in. It’s reasons like this that make me doubt the game will last very long, even after the developers took a year to fix it.
