Sea of Thieves is getting microtransaction pets a few months after launch
It's just the right spirit for what Sea of Thieves is. "What I will confirm is there are no microtransactions for launch". Neate continued to state that his job was to oversee the game not just at launch, but further than that - as a business.

Rhee In-jong, former executive vice president at Samsung Electronics and creator of the Bixby artificial intelligence system, has recently joined Google to lead the U.S. tech giant's Internet of Things business. Rhee said in his LinkedIn post that he is now Entrepreneur-In-Residence at Google, leading their IoT business and will report to Google Cloud CEO and Alphabet (Google's parent company) board member, Diane Greene.

He left Samsung in December a year ago for personal reasons despite generous offers. Samsung is a business which has been searching for future relevance and losing a senior executive is never a good sign for a business. This is not to say the mobile is not making money, more that Apple has done an excellent job in monopolizing smartphone profits. During that time, he has effectively coordinated a series of milestone projects such as Samsung Knox, the company's enterprise security platform; Samsung Pay, its mobile payment system, and Bixby, the company's digital assistant. This division is responsible for selling software and hardware to other businesses. He has now been hired by Google.
