While most Battlefield fans (including this guy) sees Battlefield 5 as a misstep for the franchise, EA seems confident that fans will love what they see from this year’s Battlefield game tentatively titled Battlefield 6.
During EA’s quarterly earnings call, Andrew Wilson refrained from sharing any specific info regarding the upcoming shooter, though did state that this year’s Battlefield title will “usher in a new generation” for Battlefield games, and that this upcoming entry into the franchise will “exactly” be the game that Battlefield fans want.
Michael Ng (Goldman Sachs): With first-person shooters using free-to-play game mode to expand the top funnel, could you talk a little bit about your ambition to do something like that with Battlefield? Is there anything you could share with us about the content road map?
Andrew Wilson (EA CEO): On Battlefield, we don’t have anything more to share with you at this point other than we believe that it’s going to usher in a new generation for Battlefield games and Battlefield fans and we’ll be taking — benefiting from the full power of next-gen platforms. And you should imagine that we’re looking across all forms of the experience to ensure that this is exactly the game that Battlefield fans want to play and the game that we believe will drive growth in the Battlefield franchise. But more on that to come in the month ahead and we’re excited to share more on that at the appropriate time.
If you’re a big of a Battlefield fan as I am, you’re no doubt itching to know more. Thankfully, the wait won’t be long as EA has confirmed that we’ll be seeing the game’s reveal sometime in Spring 2021, and that it’ll feature “more players than ever before,” which leads into this whole “usher in a new generation” quote as well.
