  • EA Apparently Blames Weak Battlefield V Sales on Prioritizing Campaign Over Battle Royale


    Just when you thought the general rabble about Battlefield V was finally quieting down, EA released their Q3 2019 financials to investors today. In doing so, EA's top brass say that Battlefield V sold roughly 1 million units below expectations because development prioritized a single player campaign over getting a battle royale mode ready for launch.

    To its credit, Battlefield V still sold 7.3 million units across all platforms, but it's still considered underperforming according to EA's expectations. This disappointment was conveyed today by EA CEO Andrew Wilson.

    Disney CEO Bob Iger Reportedly Spoke with EA CEO Andrew Wilson Earlier Today

    It has been reported by VentureBeat that Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, had a little chat earlier today with EA's CEO, Andrew Wilson. Like, we're not talking Iger sent a message or had someone else send a message. I'm saying like Iger himself had a chat with Wilson. This went straight to the top of the Mouse's ears.

    According to VentureBeat's "sources familiar with the situation," the two were talking about Star Wars Battlefront II. Huh, I wonder what specifically they were talking about? It's possible it wasn't about anything serious at all. But then again, we live in the real world and the two more than likely...

    Peter Moore Leaving EA to Become CEO of Liverpool FC

    EA's Peter Moore is saying farewell to the gaming industry in a rather unusual way. Liverpool Football Club (Liverpool FC) announced today that Moore will take on the role of CEO for the organization starting this Summer. That's right, the big boss at EA Sports will be going from being "in the game" to actually being in the game.
    The 61-year-old is currently chief competition officer at Electronic Arts, based in the United States, and will move to Liverpool to join the club in the summer. His nearly 10 years at EA have seen him in a number of leadership positions, including chief operating officer and president of EA SPORTS.
    This was completely unexpected. Best of luck to Pet...

    EA and DICE Admit Battlefield 4 Launch was "Unacceptable"

    I know your hearts are probably stopped after reading that headline, but just take a deep breath and try to soldier on through the news story, okay? Yes, EA and DICE have now admitted that Battlefield 4's launch was "unacceptable."

    In speaking with Eurogamer, EA CEO Andrew Wilson and DICE GM Karl-Magnus Troedsson have said that the game suffered due to its ambition. (Note: This is a very, very long interview. I strongly urge you to read through the full Eurogamer article yourself in addition to the cherry-picked quotes I selected below.)

    Alright, let's see where they go with this.
    Andrew Wilson: "Think about what Battlefield 4 was: 64 player multiplayer, giant maps, 1080p, Levolution that was changing the gameplay design in an emergent way. There is a
