Battlefield V May Have Cross Platform Play
Cross-platform gameplay is still a hot point of discussion in the gaming industry as it has yet to come to a close. Sony’s been fairly resistant and even back-and-forth on the matter, but Xbox and Nintendo are determined to “survive together.” Valve is right there as well. Since we last reported, Sony promised to look into crossplay possibilities, but that’s the last anyone has heard of it. However, one large corporate developer is keen on creating more crossplay opportunities in their midst, including the likes of Battlefield V.
During an Electronic Arts investor’s call, Vice President of Investor Relations, Chris Evenden, mentioned the prospects of cross-platform gameplay for Battlefield V and other franchises under their belt. Taking into consideration the success Fortnite’s crossplay feature has been, the company may want to learn a lesson or two. Evenden stated:
We’re looking at key franchises in terms of how we can deliver cross-platform play in a similar way that Fortnite has, especially some of our titles that have a broad and diverse player base. The ability to bring PC to mobile or mobile to console can bring family and friends together, and we think that’s an important part of our future development profile. Expect more from us on that front in the future.”
There’s certainly no harm in trying. As the release date for Battlefield V approaches this October, the game offers extensive character customization, a compelling storyline, and exciting new additions to make this one of the best entries in the franchise. In other related news, an open beta has been confirmed for September, but registration has not yet opened. As EA moves forward, with Battlefield V, they intend to learn from past mistakes and move toward a “long-term service plan.”
