Is that official word from Konami?

Likely, the means aren't there yet, as the game isn't released yet. I don't think we'll know for sure until then.

Who cares? You don't need to use coins for anything.

Chances are you get given your first FOB, and have to buy any others with coins.

Konami already stated that you don't NEED the coins for anything. You simply have to be online (which you can't at the moment since servers aren't online) and you can use in-game resources to purchase the stuff the micro transactions do, and all the micros are there for is to erase the "grind" of things. Nothing is locked behind a paywall.

Not true. Robert said in his stream that the first FOB is free. If you want 3 more FOBs you will have to pay real money to buy coins to unlock them. The coins cannot be earned in-game.

But one FOB is enough for the multiplayer aspect. The others are there just if you want more resources/more staff for your mother base. Apart from that, nothing is actually locked and everything can be purchased.

Items also depend on real time when you develop them, but most of them are instant.
