To clarify, Oneal specifically stated “Everything that you see at launch is going to be unlocked with gameplay. We’re not planning on having monetization at launch.” Here, monetization applies to any type of additional purchases including future DLC.

The remasters are meant to capture the 90s nostalgia and will be a “complete package” at launch. However, Oneal did not reject future content altogether. According to Oneal, post launch content is subject to fan feedback.
