There is absolutely no money whatsoever behind the game. So all of the assets and source code are freely available. Which means anyone can copy, modify, and redistribute. Since all of Red Eclipse 2 is built on the contributions of volunteers. Right from the engine (which does not trace its heritage to any commercial studio). All the way up to the assets, levels, and modes. Even the user interface and maps. So there is no income from selling skins or lootboxes, etc. The servers and infrastructure are also run and maintained by volunteers.
