Will microtransactions save Destiny 2?

Destiny 2 and its expansions has failed to meet Activision Blizzard’s sales estimates and the company is now scrambling to please its investors. Activision Blizzard recently made the base game free to claim in the battle.net-app for PC players until November 18th, in an attempt to try and boost the player base and potential expansion pack sales. But is that all?

According to Kotaku:

“…the publisher said today on an earnings call, promising investors a faster content model and new forms of monetization for the game.

While this may sound good on paper for the investors, how will gamers react to such news?

Destiny 2 just added its third expansion Forsaken this September, an expansion which has received positive reviews from journalists and somewhat positive reviews from gamers. Destiny fans feel Forsaken is a step in the right direction, in which direction will the next step be?
