Nothing is set in stone, but we have a lot ideas for factorio content that would that would fit nicely in something like an expansion pack or a 1.1 release
Conclusion; no need to DLC. Just update the game regularly and don't be too greedy.

As if there haven't been other forms of marketing in the past... like for example fullscale Addons that expand the game in a larger, more meaningful way that justifies taking several bucks for it.

Broodwar and Throne of bhaal is Expansion, new skin of weapon is DLC.

realm174 wrote:My biggest beef with the constant updates/releases is mostly for the modding community. We've seen it in other popular games (Minecraft comes to mind) where they had so many releases that were breaking mods that modders eventually got fed up. They spent all their time updating their mods to make it "work" with the new weekly release rather than adding new and interesting features. Factorio is not much different. Every time there's been an update that required modders to update their stuff, those of us who play with mods had to either play vanilla for a while, or wait (and complain in some cases) about this or that mod that hasn't been updated yet.

Then again, you could argue that experimental releases are already a form of notice...
