EA earnings 2022: taking “a long view” on Battlefield 2042 updates

            In EA's latest earnings call, the publisher says it’s going to “take a long view” on <a href="https://www.pcgamesn.com/battlefield-2042" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Battlefield 2042</a> updates and the franchise as a whole. The <a href="https://www.pcgamesn.com/15-best-pc-first-person-shooters" target="_blank" rel="noopener">FPS game</a> has been plagued with issues since its release, but fans can seemingly rest assured that EA isn't about to abandon it.

When questioned by investors on whether the publisher has changed its view on “invest[ing] more” in Battlefield 2042 for the long term given “the lack of resurgence from the last update,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said: “No… We take a long view here. This is one of the great franchises in our industry, built by one of the great teams in our industry. And our expectation is that we’ll continue to grow and be a really important part of our portfolio for many, many years to come.”

Wilson cited the change in leadership within the Battlefield team, referring to former Respawn head and Infinity Ward co-founder Vince Zampella’s appointment late last year. Wilson says the team is “rethinking the development process from the ground up,” with a focus on “getting the core game right.”
