Many people are suggesting this will be the last DLC, even if it is not, it is highly likely that DLCs will be coming out at a MUCH slower rate.
They need something to keep people incentivized to play, and you do that by making sure they still have things to save up to buy. So lots of expensive shit.
And the slow as heck research thingy. I wouldn't be so pissed about it if it let you some choice instead of being completely random, give missions to unlock it quicker or if the update at least had worthwhile missions to do in the meantime.
Since Jesus is confirmed hacker, this is what a legit player looks like.
