Can EA Learn From Rainbow Six Siege With 25 Million Players

Ubisoft has announced that two years after launch, Rainbow Six Siege has over 25 million registered players. Now entering its third year, Ubisoft has lined-up more content to prolong the life of the game for another season, proving that games-as-a-service can be done properly in the AAA space. When Siege launched at the tail end of 2015, critics took the game to task over its threadbare offerings, which featured a single PvP mode, no campaign, and only a handful of maps, not to mention a litany of...

Is EA Screwing Up The Planned Move To Games As A Service

Every now and then, a major publisher goes through a bit of a rough patch in PR terms; the hits just seem to keep on coming, with company execs and representatives seemingly incapable of opening their mouths without shoving their feet right inside, and every decision being either poorly communicated or simply wrongheaded to begin with. At present it’s EA that can’t seem to put a foot right, from Battlefront 2’s microtransactions to lingering bad feeling over the closure of Visceral;...

Did The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Fiasco Hurt The Franchise

Did The Star Wars Battlefront 2 Fiasco Hurt The Franchise

The run-up to launch for Star Wars: Battlefront II has been, to put it bluntly, a fiasco. I would suggest that it has also provided a model for publishers to follow in the future. When Electronic Arts announced at E3 that it was scrapping the Season Pass model for Battlefront II, the move was met warmly by players. After all, the Season Pass split the player base into people with the DLC and without, preventing them from enjoying new maps and game modes together. At the time, the understanding was...

Belgian’s Decide Star Wars Loot Boxes Is A Form Of Gambling

Last week the gambling authority turned its eye towards the issue and since concluded that loot boxes present a danger to children. VTM News reported that Belgian minister of justice Koen Geens said the gambling commission will take the matter to Europe. The Dutch authorities joined the recent investigation too, and while a decision has yet to be reached,...

Did EA Screw Up SW Battlefront II With Microtransactions

EA has suspended microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II following a furor over loot boxes, hours before the game’s launch earlier today. Loot boxes have been increasingly controversial in recent months but the backlash towards Star Wars Battlefront II has eclipsed the debate. While other developers and publishers have been embroiled in the controversy, EA has taken the brunt due to the imbalance potentially caused by randomized loot in a competitive multiplayer shooter. “We hear...

Can The Nintendo Switch Handle Virtual Reality

The response to Nintendo’s portable/console hybrid has been incredible thus far, with sales almost on track to match that of the original Wii. While the VR market has yet to see mainstream appeal on a level anything close to the Switch, Cloudhead Games CEO Denny Unger does believe that it could benefit from a device that offers similar mobile functionality but when at home can “dock” or tether to a PC to utilize its full power. Moreover, he thinks such a device could help to solve...
