[GC 2018] Battlefield V: Electronic Arts Already Has „A Contingency Plan”

Previously, we wrote about how Battlefield V‘s pre-orders (as well as its YouTube like/dislike ratio) are somewhat bad. Now, even the publisher responds to the situation…

VentureBeat reports that not only the analysts consider Battlefield V‘s performance, but even Electronic Arts itself thinks the World War II FPS is below its expectations, and yet, it still has more pre-orders than EA’s previous flop, namely Titanfall 2.

If Battlefield V has a tough launch, Electronic Arts might initiate its contingency plan. DICE has a ton of post-launch content in development, including the battle royale mode, which was teased (and confirmed) during the EA Play conference. EA might copy Epic Games’ idea, and make the battle royale mode free-to-play…

Battlefield V‘s open beta will be available for pre-orderers, EA Access, Origin Access, and Origin Access Premier subscribers from September 4 – the rest can play from September 6. The game will launch on October 11 (only on PC!) for Origin Access Premier subscribers, followed by a Deluxe Edition launch on October 16, and the proper release on October 19 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, respectively.
