Electronic Arts is dipping its toe into the battle royale space with this year's Battlefield V, but we might see a more fully fledged game in the sector in the near future.
Speaking to investors - as transcribed by Seeking Alpha - CFO Blake Jorgensen said that the company is maybe interested in experimenting with a proper battle royale game. Additionally, the firm also wants this to be a free-to-play experience.
Sure sounds a lot like another big game right now…
"Right now we're focused on – for Battlefield, we're focused on creating as a mode in the game," Jorgensen said.
"No different than the other modes that we have in the game. We may have lots of other things that come out over time for Battlefield. I think we're really focused on how do we continually build live services around all of our games. And you'll see some of that for Battlefield in the comings months and once the game is released.
"I would say we're interested in possibly experimenting with a essentially free-to-play standalone game that might be in a shooter genre or another genre, but I don't think that's how we're looking at the Battlefield stuff right now. But you'll see more to come on that in the coming months and years."
