For EA CEO Andrew Wilson, the general uncertainty that has arisen about the future of Call of Duty may, on the contrary, represent a great opportunity for Battlefield, arguing that the issue of exclusivity can be decisive.
Wilson’s comparison is focused precisely on the possibility that Call of Duty could become an Xbox exclusive with the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, although this hypothesis continues to be disproved by Microsoft.
In practice, the fact that the Activision series may be tied to some specific platforms could put it at a disadvantage compared to Battlefield’s cross-platform approach, according to EA’s CEO.
In the same communication in which Wilson admitted that the last two chapters of Battlefield were lower than expected, the CEO of EA also referred to the direct competitor on the market, claiming to want to exploit the climate of uncertainty about the future of the series that has been came to be created with the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft.
“In a world where we see so many questions about the future of Call of Duty and what platforms they might or may not have it on, being platform independent and completely cross-platform I think is a fantastic opportunity for Battlefield,” said Andrew Wilson. .
Obviously, it is a question of pushing above all on the characteristics of your title and on the advantages of choosing the fact of being a multi-platform and cross-platform game, but the direct reference to the vicissitudes of the competition is curious, seen as a positive element for the success of the game. own game.
The reference is obviously to the question of the possible exclusive of Call of Duty on Xbox and PC, which is animating a bit the whole videogame market since it is at the center of Sony’s grievances against the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft. , despite even recently Phil Spencer reported that he has no intention of removing the game from the competing platform.
