EA sees a huge opportunity for Battlefield with Call of Duty exclusivity on Xbox


EA does not seem against Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard.

Although it is still an issue that has to be clarified before or after Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard, Call of Duty could disappear from PlayStation consoles in a few years. This, which has recently become a point of contention between Jim Ryan and Phil Spencer, has turned out to be a unexpected business opportunity for EAwho anticipates that will benefit Battlefield before a hypothetical exclusivity of Call of Duty.

Call of Duty and Battlefield have always rivaled at the top of the AAA competitive multiplayer war FPS, although they are really very different proposals because Battlefield offers large-scale war games and more realism in its mechanics. Still, EA believes that Call of Duty exclusivity could be an opportunity for Battlefield.

Being cross-platform is an advantage for Battlefield

At a Goldman Sachs investment banking group conference last week, Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson admitted that the last two installments of the Battlefield series had not been up to the task of what was expected of them, but he was confident in the future of the franchise.

“We have a lot of work to do,” Wilson said, “but it’s an extraordinary fundamental IP“. He went on to compare Battlefield to Star Wars and how it went from having rocky moments to having great successes again by having “the right creative team“.

A push for that return to success could be a hypothetical Call of Duty exclusivity on Xbox and PC consoles, something that could happen in a few years. “Be completely cross-platform with Battlefield I think it’s a huge opportunity,” Wilson concluded.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will leave one of the players’ favorite game modes

At the moment it is not entirely clear what will happen to call of duty if the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft is closed. Jim Ryan recently assured that Microsoft’s offer was to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation for three more years after the end of the current agreements, which could mean a margin of between 5 and 6 years up to possible exclusivity if no other terms are negotiated beforehand.
