The rivalry between the two series of military shooters from Activision (Call of Duty) and Electronic Arts (Battlefield) was sketched out early in the last decade and continues to this day with varying degrees of success, but there’s an obvious favorite in the confrontation.

Sony, facing the risk of losing access to Call of Duty due to the transfer of Activision Blizzard with its assets to Microsoft, is trying to prove to the CMA that no game can compete with the Activision franchise or replicate its success.

“Other publishers don’t have the resources or experience to achieve the same level of success. For example, Electronic Arts (one of the largest third-party developers after Activision) has been trying to turn their Battlefield into a Call of Duty competitor for many years.Say Sony lawyers.

Despite the similarities between the two series and EA’s success with other AAA franchises (Sony mentions FIFA, Mass Effect, NFS, and DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront), Battlefield can’t match Call of Duty: 88.7 million copies vs 400 million (August 2021).

Sony doesn’t believe in itself either: “Even if SIE has the ability and resources to develop an equally successful franchise, it would take years and billions of dollars to create a Call of Duty competitor – as EA’s Battlefield shows, such attempts are more than likely to fail.” sentenced.”.

Because of its size ($68.7 billion), the deal between Activision Blizzard and Microsoft should get the green light from a number of regulators, including the CMA. The US Federal Trade Commission is also involved in the process and may try to block the takeover.
