I have more faith in WotC than that.The trouble is that the VTT appears to be designed to create a gacha game not to function as a useful GM tool It doesn't matter when they launch it or how much testing & feedback they get because Zynga's farmville will never be sim earth & their cityville will never be sim city. Simply calling it a VTT won't make it useful in that role if it lacks a competitive featureset.
I think they will try and put out a great product for DMs and players because that’s what their business is. I have no reason to think they would sacrifice a good product for a lousy product that costs more. I really don’t mind paying more for 3d tokens if I can switch it to regular uploadable 2D token mode as well.
Aside from some editorial choices about product in the last two years, I’m pretty supportive of what WotC has done product wise in the last 10 years. I think they’ve been overwhelming trying to make the best game they can. (Even when it’s not been to my taste)
One D&D seems to be trying to continue in the same vein. I don’t have a reason to think they would do differently with their VTT. So because Im a glass half full kind of guy I’m gonna go with that until I can see some actual stuff that says otherwise.
