Apparently they’ve have learnt from their mistake with Star Wars: Battlefront 2.
EA discussed their monetization plans and more regarding Battlefield V during their financial conference call for investors and analysts. It looks like the company has learnt from their mistakes with Star Wars: Battlefront II.
The aim with Battlefield V has been to deliver a big and spectacular game that players would continue to engage with over time, similar to Star Wars: Battlefront II. However, the company has re-evaluated their use of progression systems and monetization practices and are using a completely new kind of progression system with Battlefield V.
Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgenson also stated that EA is looking at the purchasing intent, pre-orders and other elements surrounding the game and they’re quite happy with the results. We can expect the game to be a massive success then- at least based on what EA is saying. Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson stated that there will be a long term service plan so as to continue delivering content to players and to keep them engaged for a long period.
Battlefield V is set to release for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 19.
