  • Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

It's great that EA and other companies are considering jumping aboard the cross-play train.

Following the swift announcement and release of Apex Legends, many fans of Respawn Entertainment were disappointed that the studio isn't making Titanfall 3. During the Q&A portion of a recent earnings call, CEO Andrew Wilson suggested that while their data has found the feature isn't widely used by players, it still plans to utilize it-especially for franchises with big player bases like Federation Internationale de Football Association. EA wanted Battlefield V to sell around 8.3 million units but only ended up around 7.3 million.

"The video game industry continues to grow through a year of intense competition and transformational change", Wilson said. The most significant of these appears to have been the game's specific launch date; a date which saw delays into November of previous year. "Unfortunately, the later release date meant the game launched deeper into a competitive holiday window where heavy price discounting was a big factor". "Q3 was a hard quarter for Electronic Arts and we did not perform to our expectations", Wilson said.

Measles outbreak could easily make its way to Montana
Around the globe, measles infections were responsible for 110,000 deaths in 2017, the most recent statistical year. The outbreak investigation, which is ongoing has identified 49 confirmed cases since January 1.

"We made the decision to prioritize other features, including a single player experience at launch, over a battle royale mode", Wilson said.

For now, EA is only letting players access the game on Origin but any players in the game can invite their friends from Steam to join them in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends launched on Origin, PS4 and Xbox One earlier this week to raucous applause: the game fuses battle royale and hero shooter elements to create something interesting and new in the multiplayer shooting space.
