Younger Audiences don’t know about WW1 according to EA | Battlefield 1


Kids not knowing about World War 1 almost shut down production of Battlefield 1.

Did World War 1 ever happen? According to EA, some people don’t even know about it. While discussing the upcoming Battlefield game which takes place in World War 1, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said that the company was worried that younger audiences wouldn’t know if World War 1 actually happened. This led to some disrupt inside the studio on whether World War 1 would be the setting for the new entry in the Battlefield series.

He later went on to say, “we were worried that many of the younger consumers out there didn’t know that there was a World War 2 or Vietnam, so World War 1…”

Apparently there were plenty of things EA worried about when discussing World War 1. One reason was that they didn’t know if trench warfare would be fun. The team then presented more ideas for Battlefield 1 and then it got green lit.

Jorgensen said that World War 1 was a time for technological change in warfare; and that “People started the war on horseback and ended the war with airplanes and tanks and battleships and submarines. And that’s a huge opportunity for us to be able to do a video game around.”

We will find out on October 21, 2016 if World War 1 turns out to be a great location for the new Battlefield and if it could take the shooter crown away from Call of Duty.

    I’m afraid your probably right. If this were 120hz, I’d buy it in a heartbeat. Would pretty much be the perfect monitor.

    Games like Warframe, Hawken and Marvel Heroes (2015) do show that F2P ain’t half bad; great even.nAs for mobile fare, Puzzle & Drago1 and Brave Frontier are doing better jobs at being mobile JRPGs than Square Enix’s past mobile efforts with FF.
