Battlefield “Cannot Keep Up” With Call Of Duty, Says Sony

Sony is dragging Battlefield into its fight to stay with Call of Duty.


Ever since Microsoft announced its planned acquisition of Activision Blizzard, Sony has desperately tried to convince investigative regulators that the deal should not go ahead. To do this, he focuses primarily on the Call of Duty franchise, as he believes that Microsoft will make the franchise exclusive to Xbox consoles and have a negative impact on the gaming industry and its player base. He thinks this because Sony believes that no other franchise can compete with Call of Duty in terms of pure sales.


To prove this, Sony threw some shade at Battlefield publisher EA, claiming that the series “can’t keep up” with Call of Duty despite being its biggest rival (thanks). eurogamer). Sony claims that the publisher has “tried for many years” to become a rival to Call of Duty, but has never come close to succeeding, and that “other publishers don’t have the resources or experience to match their success.” The closest he got was with Medal of Honor and we all know how that turned out.

It’s not like Battlefield 2042 was much of an attempt to reignite that rivalry, either, as most fans will agree that it launched in an absolutely lousy state. In fact, its player count is often surpassed by previous games every time they come out, as Battlefield 1 showed earlier this month. Sony is probably right when it says that no one can replicate what Call of Duty does, but it’s not like it doesn’t have plenty of other shooters that could fill a void if Microsoft makes the series exclusive.

Microsoft certainly thinks Sony would be fine without it, at the very least, even going so far as to badmouth its own games to get the message across. Microsoft recently made headlines for admitting that PlayStation exclusives are “better quality” than Xbox exclusives, pointing to best-selling titles like God of War, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us. Microsoft argued that the quality of these titles is something that could easily sustain Sony without Call of Duty, though it’s hard to see Xbox not aiming for a similarly prestigious lineup of exclusives in the near future.
