Bank Of America: Buy Activision Blizzard Over Electronic Arts

Justin Post, research analyst at Bank of America issued a research note on Thursday in which he favors Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) over Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA) on the belief that Activision will have more “title excitement” over the next few months. (Blizzard, Destiny, EA, Industry, TitanFall)

Titan Fall looks amazing but Destiny is where it is at for me IMO. Don't really care for EA a whole lot but I do like the developers they have under them. Most notably Bioware/PoPcap.

After the horrible release of BF4 POS edition and Sim City yes... Popcap over Dice.

EA is nothing but garbage. pushing out shoveware with only a title here or there that shines. Only cause the developer has a little clout...

Destiny, Skylander, and COD, there is the money train. Also do not forget that Blizzard is part of Activision.

True that adds the Diablo 3 expansion and next gen launch and the WoW expansion.

Yup. Activision is going to have an amazing year.

EA will probably put out a half-ass Battlefield spin-off this year just to try and compete. Let's just hope it doesn't go the way of Medal of Honor...

I know they pulled people to work on BF 4 but was the new Star Wars game due late this year or next? I thought it was due next year around the launch of Episode VII.

EA has a cop/criminal themed FPS game from Visceral set to launch this year. Code named Havannah. E3 or GDC Debut is going to happen.

Also. Battlefront is coming in 2015. They delayed it to match up with the Movie season for Episode 7's release around May 2015. They also have a couple other projects under wraps.

If what your saying is true DeadlyFire than EA may be the way to go for making a quick buck. Things that are already announced and analyzed are already accounted for in the stock value with slight increases for exceeding sales expectations and such. Investing when expecting surprise announcements by these company's is where the money is at. I'm sure BOA is probably right, if you're looking for something to add to your portfolio for the long haul

I really REALLY dislike EA. They always end up ruining potentially great games by forcing the developers to rush the game and make it more 'appealing' to a wider audience. I think that gamers will eventually get tired of this crap and start funding projects themselves. Star Citizen is a great example of this.

Very well said...

EA is nothing but Shovelware when they can rush or push developers. IF EA has too much say then the games chances of being good are minimal.
