In an investor meeting, EA CEO John Riccitiello was at his confident best. Simply put, he thinks Battlefield 3 will be a flat out superior title to Call of Duty.
“We know we have a big competitor. But head-to-head with Call of Duty in Q3, we have the superior game engine, a superior development studio, and a flat out superior game. Our goal is to significantly gain share in the huge FPS category and to put the other team on defense.”
Bold words indeed. He also thinks that Battlefield 3 is been developed to take Call of Duty down and calls it the battle of the holiday season.
“This game is designed to take that game down. If you’re looking for a battle of the titans – Red Sox vs Yankees… Microsoft or Google and what the tip-off point is for this holiday season, this is it.”
We will know for sure if that will happen, but beating out Call of Duty Black Ops sales record will be a pretty humongous task. If EA are looking at that level, then they have their task cut out.
