In response to the investor's query, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that; "While they sit inside the battle royale genre, they are two very different type of experiences", although he did go on to state that; "On some level, there may also be some crossover".
EA launched two big titles past year, Battlefield V and the mobile game Command & Conquer Rivals.
However, he admitted that this the competition they had to face was partially EA's own fault, noting that with the delayed release of Battlefield V from October to November, "the combination of a poor start in our marketing campaign with a longer development cycle that put us in a more competitive window", as quoted by Ars Technica. We think about franchises with tremendously large communities like Federation Internationale de Football Association, and we think that they would absolutely benefit from cross-play and cross-progress, as more and more people come into these big communities.

Mike Ng: It seems that in fiscal 2020 Respawn will now be operating or launching three titles between that one, Apex, and Star Wars, could you just talk about Respawn capacity for that?
McCoy says they tried to figure out a more balanced version of mechs in Apex Legends, but "when we tried Titans that weren't as powerful, or had "gotchas" to them, it really ruined that power fantasy of what a Titan is and should be".
If you're out of the loop: Apex Legends is a bit of a departure from the traditional Titanfall formula, being a free-to-play battle royale game instead of a first-person shooter. Given how EA has repeatedly said that this is a "premium" game, that rules out this being a small, indie-ish title. Based on the wording, it may not be a mainline Titanfall game, like we'd expect. It's still set in the same universe, but it's not Titanfall 3. The decision to prioritise single-player over battle royale was cited by EA during the call as a factor in Battlefield 5 failing to meet its sales expectations. Color us intrigued! With Respawn's pedigree, it's understandable to be excited, and we can't wait to hear more about this new Titanfall game.
