Xbox exclusive Call of Duty takes advantage of Battlefield, EA says

After Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard began to be reviewed by regulators around the world, Sony tried at all costs to prevent the purchase from being completed, given that Microsoft could make many Xbox franchises, such as Call of Duty, exclusive.

Although Microsoft has already stated that it has no plans to make Call of Duty exclusive anytime soon, many are skeptical. While there are those who fear this possibility, EA believes that if Xbox shuts down Call of Duty on its platforms, it can benefit from the Battlefield franchise.

Electronic Arts is making big changes to the Battlefield franchise to try to bring it back, including removing DICE from control of the franchise and handing creative leadership to Vince Zampella, who after many successes at Respawn is now tasked with saving the success. for the battlefield.

According to Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson, getting Battlefield back on track is more important than ever because Call of Duty’s potential Xbox exclusivity offers a sea of ​​opportunities.

In his pitch to investors, Wilson agreed that the last two DICE games haven’t lived up to expectations, but he knows the Battlefield name has staying power and can fight back. If they can get a good team in place to control the series and shape its future, they know it will keep players enthusiastic in the future.

According to him, the team responsible for Battlefield is very good and talented, able to do what it wants and to inspire its ambition for the first-person action genre. Additionally, he feels that unexpected opportunities are bound to arise with all the confusion surrounding Call of Duty.

In a world where there are questions about the future of Call of Duty and what platforms it may or may not be on, going multi-platform and full cross-play in Battlefield is a huge opportunity for our franchise.

So far, EA has yet to reveal the next Battlefield, but they have confirmed that they are working on a cinematic experience in the universe of the franchise.

And you, do you think Battlefield will be able to surpass the success of Call of Duty?
