Battlefiled 4 will be released a few hours from now and everyone is gearing up for this new series.
Battlefield is undeniably the top foe of Call of Duty in the FPS gaming scene. It is just obvious that the two companies would clash and bash on each other.
A few weeks before the release date, EA Executive President Patrick Soderlund took a step further and said he won’t stop until he defeats Acivision’s Call of Duty series.
The Battle begins:
Furthermore, Patrick added that Activision is now looking at them as a threat to their popular FPS franchise. As he quoted from an MCV interview:
“But we think about them. Maybe they weren’t thinking about us much when we made Battlefield 3, but I can tell you, they are thinking about us now. They need too. We made a dent in the FPS market and we took share from them. And I am not going to give up until I’m No.1 and I am going to make sure I’m No.1.
“We are spending a tonne of money on this, our teams are killing themselves every year to make great games. I want to give our consumers the best I can. We will strive to be No.1. If I said: ‘No.5 is probably fine,’ it’s hard for people to rally behind that message. But I wouldn’t say we could be No.1 if I didn’t think we could. I think I have the right team, the right product and the right strategy to get there.”
It was clear that last year Battlefied 3 did take a cut off COD’s market share. They sold over 15 million copies of the game but that wasn’t enough to take over Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2.
But this could probably be the reason why EA Executive Patrick Soderlund is hopeful that EA’s FPS franchise could go number 1.
