Since Diablo Immortal, the fans sought Activision Blizzard to make some changes to their microtransaction acquisitiveness. Seems, though, their wishes were not granted. A recently spotted survey by @Portergauge suggests that a single Overwatch 2 skin could cost as much as $45. As it would seem, Activision Blizzard doesn’t really plan on simmering down the “microtransaction craze.”
The survey contained the question, “How likely would you be to purchase a Mythic Skin at a price of $44.99?” Now, if the common sense wins, the percentage of the people who answer “very unlikely” would be significantly high. It is rather improbable that a single Overwatch 2 skin would cost $45 at launch. Since this is just a survey, the general guess would be that Activision Blizzard wants to know how much of your wallet they can get before you go broke.
Oof, friend of mine got an Overwatch survey for his account, some of these prices they're gauging for OW2 are really expensive.
I hope this is just him getting one of the higher price surveys and not an indication that they're leaning towards this much monetization. pic.twitter.com/RWr7LbwkLB

Activision Blizzard has been changing their plans of how they want to include microtransactions; they confirmed that Overwatch 2 will include a battle pass system accompanied with direct purchases, more or less like Fortnite, coupled with many other battle royale games.
Other prices included: $24.99 for a legendary tier skin, $9.99 for a weapon charm. And others, as shown in the attached tweet. As you could’ve probably guessed, this didn’t receive any sort of acclamation from the community on Reddit. Fans are worried that Overwatch 2‘s microtransactions could go as far as being the second Diablo Immortal, which was a huge disappointment.
