Battlefield-serien har ikke haft det alt for let de sidste par år. Jo, Battlefield 1 klarede sig fortrinligt, men det seneste kapitel, Battlefield V, var ikke den succes EA havde håbet på, og heller ej fik introduktionen af en Battle Royale-del gang i spillerne. Nu arbejder DICE på Battlefield 6, men analytiker Michael Pachter spår at det ikke vil gå så godt som man måske tror.
Og hvorfor så? Jo, primært fordi han har kigget på tallene, og efter al sandsynlighed skal Battlefield 6 op imod et nyt Call of Duty, og bliver der taget godt imod det spil, jamen så er Battlefield i problemer, for sådan har det været de sidste par gange. Han siger følgende til GamingBolt.
"The two Battlefield games that did super well were 4 and 1, and they came out against the two lowest rated Call of Duty games. So both of those Battlefield games did super well. Then the next Battlefield game came out against Black Ops 4, which was one of the best received games in the Call of Duty franchise, and it didn't do that well. I mean it still sold 8 million units, but the others have done 15 million. So I think that EA has a problem with Battlefield because it is so close to Call of Duty, it plays and looks the same. And obviously there are fans of each IP for different reasons, but they are both military FPSes."
"So I think that the odds of Battlefield going up against another well received Call of Duty are pretty high, so I would say Battlefield will sell worse than people expect, because it will be up against a tough competitor. But hey, if they make a great game, market it well, and have a good launch window, maybe they'll fare better next time."
