Turbine at work on micro-transaction MMO

Developer says the move will be for an as yet unnamed title

MMO developer Turbine has confirmed it is working on an as yet unannounced title based on the micro-transactions business model.

Earlier this week, the developer behind Lord of the Rings Online posted a job listing for a micro-transaction and e-commerce manager, prompting fears by fans of its games that the model would be applied to existing MMOs - a theory Turbine has attempted to quash.

"We know the recent job listing has caused a bit of a stir, but please be aware that this posting is for an unannounced future project," said a company representative in the Lord of the Rings Online forum post.
