It's certainly hard to imagine that publishers aren't tempted to plan development of these new expensive games with DLC in mind - with the result being a game that's nowhere near as "complete" or wholesome as it would have been without DLC as the accepted standard.
I'm not saying they all do that - but from my point of view, it's naive to think it's not common practice by now. I don't think the actual developers have much say in this either.
It's kinda like advertising… For many, many years - consumers have accepted being lied to and deceived through marketing. It's completely ok to deceive in the name of profit.
