Battlefield Remasters Not Coming Anytime Soon
Though EA could make one if demand is high enough.
While remasters are becoming a way of life in the video game industry, it doesn’t appear Electronic Arts is joining the party with any kind of gusto. Despite the fact that we’re finally getting a Call of Duty remaster, EA doesn’t appear to be following suit with Battlefield remasters.
EA’s Patrick Sunderland recently talked about his company’s plans when it comes to remasters, especially for Battlefield, to IBT saying, “I wouldn’t say never. We’re not doing it right now, we’re focused on Battlefield 1 – but if we think the fans want that I see no reason we couldn’t.”
Considering EA is already sort of rebooting it’s entire Battlefield franchise, there doesn’t appear to be a need for a remaster. Considering they’ve actually named this Battlefield 1, it seems they might go down the road of remasters, by putting out new games set in or around the time where some of their more popular earlier games were set.
