Gambling company EA has announced another pay to win mobile title set to release in 2022, and every feature is again locked on a lootbox system, and that game is Battlefield for mobile.
Digital Illusions CE, developer of the ‘Battlefield’ franchise who sold their souls to the devil, has partnered with Industrial Toys to make the title happen.
“Make no mistake, this is a standalone game,” Oskar Gabrielson, the general manager of DICE, said in a blog post. “A completely different game from the one we’re making for console and PC, designed specifically for the mobile platform. It’s being built from the ground up by iToys to make Battlefield-on-the-go a reality and you can expect a fully-fledged, skill-based experience.”
We can understand why DICE has partnered up with Industrial Toys. It’s technically EA playing with itself, as Industrial Toys is also owned by EA. The company has been focusing on mobile titles and was established in 2015. Their most prominent game is called Midnight Star and is available for download on iOS.
The reason for this move is probably because of the growing mobile gaming scene, with many high-end titles like Genshin Impact and PUBG hitting the scene, as well as its prime competitor, Call of Duty. It is expected that Battlefield Mobile will compete with Call of Duty Mobile, as the two have been long rivals since their inception, starting with Call of Duty 1 and Battlefield 1942.
But really, EA is only doing it to get that sweet sweet microtransaction money. Why else would they ruin franchises like Plants Vs Zombies?
