Because of Sony and Microsoft, EA is optimistic about Battlefields' future

Because of Sony and Microsoft, EA is optimistic about Battlefields' future ...

In a separate article, we discussed the situation between Sony and Microsoft two weeks ago. Allow me to give you a quick overview of what is happening. Earlier this year, Microsoft wanted to purchase Activision Blizzard. This would allow Microsoft to purchase various IPs, including Call of Duty. However, Microsoft repeatedly assured the public that this would not be the case.

Wilson's assertion comes in handy. During a Goldman Sachs conference last week, Wilson had this to say:

Being platform agnostic and completely cross-platform with Battlefield, in a world where there may be concerns about Call of Duty's future and what platforms may be on or may not be, I think is a fantastic opportunity.

Although Wilson did not specifically mention Microsoft or Sony, it was quite clear what he was referring to. Battlefield would most likely become the new game's name in cross-platform shooters if Microsoft does not change its mind. Both games have shown no signs of stopping to shape the scales in EA's favor over the recent Battlefield game.
