Battlefield V Underperforms and EA Blames Single Player For It

The WWII shooter sold 7.3 million units during Q3, around 1 million less than EA had initially anticipated, and Wilson has lamented the fact that development changes pushed its launch into a more hard window.

Apex Legends swaps out Titanfall's rapid wall-traversal and giant mech fights for a battle royale experience reminiscent of Fortnite, leaving its connection to the original games rather tenuous.

Expected to replace the Titanfall franchise, Apex Legends reportedly shares a number of close similarities with Fortnite.

You can hear more from the EA CEO by checking out the full earnings call transcript right here. More to come on that in the months ahead.

Holder Suspended For Slow Over Rate, to Miss Final Test Against England
Holder said his West Indies team had played to honour Joseph's late mother."We all rallied around one and other", he said. West Indies won the second Test by 10 wickets in Antigua , taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-Test series.

Mike Ng: It seems that in fiscal 2020 Respawn will now be operating or launching three titles between that one, Apex, and Star Wars, could you just talk about Respawn capacity for that? "From all of us at Respawn, thank you for giving us and Apex Legends a chance", said Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella in a statement released alongside the player totals. Respawn is no stranger to spin-offs having launched real-time strategy game Titanfall Assault in 2017, however the mobile game was shut down just past year. A new Titanfall first-person shooter but one that's directly Titanfall 3 but will be set in the same universe? What our information would suggest to us is that there isn't a tremendous amount of play across devices, but that overall liquidity in any gaming community is a good and positive thing, even if it's only a few people or a small portion of the community that utilizes that.

Alongside lukewarm reviews for Battlefield V, the game is thought to have been less popular than it could have been as it launched without its Battle Royale option (Firestorm is due to arrive in spring, as a free update).

If you're going to survive the Apex Games, you have to think fast.
