EA aim to take over Activision With Battlefield 4

EA aim to take over Activision With Battlefield 4

The rivalry for the best military FPS continues. Both the Call of Duty and Battlefield series are neck and neck in the race to be the best. This rivalry proves beneficial for a gamer as it brings out the best of the two and leaves a gamer with two really kick-ass games.

Executive vice president for EA Games, Patrick Sodurlund, added fuel to the flames of the Battlefield-Call of Duty rivalry when he said that EA won’t rest till its shooter is in the number one spot.

“Competition is good,” Sodurlund told MCV. “It brings the best out of people. If there was only Battlefield or only Call of Duty, then the development teams might have been a little bit more content. We don’t look at them necessarily and mimic what they do.”

“Maybe [Activision wasn’t] thinking about us much when we made Battlefield 3, but I can tell you, they are thinking about us now. They need to. 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.”

Sodurlund doesn’t seem to be worried about the loss of the Medal of Honor games, or that Call of Duty franchise tops annual releases, while Battlefield doesn’t quite reach that mark.

“We have other games now,” he said. “We have Titanfall, which we didn’t have when we had Medal of Honor. To me it is about a balanced portfolio.”

Battlefield 4 releases October 29 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; the PlayStation 4 version releases November 12 in North America and November 29 in Europe, while the Xbox One version releases November 19 in North America, or November 22 in Europe. Players can upgrade current gen versions to the new consoles for $9.99.
