  • Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

EA does not live in a vacuum, however, and was expecting to rake in significantly more revenue for a much bigger profit-in October, the company had forecast $1.375 billion in revenue.

If you're out of the loop: Apex Legends is a bit of a departure from the traditional Titanfall formula, being a free-to-play battle royale game instead of a first-person shooter.

EA CEO Andrew Wilson said the game's battle royale mode, called Firestorm, will launch next month.

"The video game industry continues to grow through a year of intense competition and transformational change". "Q3 was a hard quarter for Electronic Arts and we did not perform to our expectations".

We hoped you'd love it as much as us, but never in our wildest dreams could we have expected the outpouring of support and positivity we've seen.

This would really be a feather in the cap for Apex Legends, introducing the kind of competitive play that multiplayer gamers lust for with leaderboards. We've been the number one views game on Twitch since launch and player sentiment seems to be very, very high right now.

During the same call, EA revealed that Battlefield 5's sales had not met their expectations, since its release in November of past year, sparking curiosity about how the gaming giant was going to be able to have both Apex Legends and Firestorm succeed together - highlighting similarities. EA wanted Battlefield V to sell around 8.3 million units but only ended up around 7.3 million.

"We made the decision to prioritize other features, including a single player experience at launch, over a battle royale mode", Wilson said.

Doing this will make it possible for Steam friends that are playing Apex Legends to appear in the squad menu in the lobby of the game - meaning you won't have to go searching for usernames and whatever else on different platforms.
