I can only talk from my own experience, yes, across the board, paid random loot boxes are being phased out. 

See this link for more info

Additionally, there are a number of countries starting to put in to law that loot boxes are considered gambling... so I would say watch this space, it usually takes law makers around 48 to 72 months to catch up and regulate

Heaven forbid people actually use common sense hey? Lucky we have the government to think for us.

Funny thing is they will ban loot boxes in games but are quite happy to leave pokie machines go or have AFL shows like "The Footy Show" sponsored by gambling apps with every second advertisement a gambling one.

I have nothing against paid randomize item (since I'm a fan of Fate/Grand Order)

IMO, they have right to exist in 'free to play' game.

 

but for a full price game... NO!

 

full price game CAN have microtransection in it but must not be random.

(I play Tales of Berseria and very enjoy buying a cute/cool outfit for velvet)

That is because the poker machines and gambling apps pay 100s of millions of $$ in licence fees and taxes. The government gets sweet fanny adams from a $1.60 loot box.
