Sony Online Entertainment has scrapped its plans to introduce paid-for consumable buffs, named "implants", within massively multiplayer online shooter Planetside 2.
The decision was made after dismayed fans filled several Reddit threads with negative feedback on the suggested feature.
"After reading through your comments we have decided to go back to the drawing board on implants," Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley wrote on Twitter this morning. "They will not be coming with [forthcoming update] GU13."
