i know many will still remain pessimistic towards Spencer, but its good to hear him reiterate his stance on keeping CoD coming out to other platforms and with no more special treatment.

blackblades134d ago

So you trust every word he says, got it and noted in history

Tacoboto134d ago

Aww. Did you note it in your little N4G Burn Book?

spicelicka134d ago

"Noted in history" lmao damn dude is patrolling N4G your only hobby?

Lightning77134d ago

Yeah, no more beta privileges. Sony will not longer lock out COD gamers from guns, skins, perks, double XP events, and/or any other in-game advantages or benefits!

Under Xbox All COD players will be treated fairly, away from Sony´s scumbag practices!

derek134d ago

@Obscure, you're ridiculous, you act as if Microsoft has saved you from the great game oppressor Playstation, lol. Power of propaganda on display.

Markdn133d ago

Obscure... You need help if you think this is good for anyone. Under Xbox COD will be a dead franchise in 2 years, that's there proven track record. And I only play on xbox so don't call me a Sony fan boy. I'M more concerned on how much game pass will cost by this time next year.

"you're ridiculous, you act as if Microsoft has saved you from the great game oppressor Playstation"

It has nothing to do with MS good, Sony bad, dude.

You people simply fail to see the big picture regarding big acquisitions. You won´t see nothing beyond what´s negative. There´s huge positives as well.

Sony used to pay Bungie for Destiny 2 exclusive in-game content the same way they used to do with COD.

Now as a Playstation first party studio, Sony is treating ALL of the Destiny 2 players equally and fairly! No exclusive advantages for any platform!

MS has no other choice but to play ball and follow suit.

Botton line: Gamers are and will be getting more benefits from both Bungie and ABK as first party studios rather what they´d used to get when those companies were independent.

@Markdn

"Under Xbox COD will be a dead franchise in 2 years, that's there proven track record."

Yeah, like Minecraft. /S

"And I only play on xbox so don't call me a Sony fan boy."

Dude, I don´t care where you play, after your fallacious comment regarding COD dead in 2 years, after Minecraft´s success under Xbox for almost 10 freaking years, I know for a fact that you don´t sh!t about Xbox. You brought me whatever your crystal ball told you. I brought you facts. Don´t even bother and reply back to me.

derek133d ago

@Obscure, your words really came off as you seeing yourself and others as some sort of victims of Sony's exclusives early access agreement, lol. How can you rationally argue for the benefits of Microsoft acquisitions while being so against minor deals Sony reached with 3rd parties.

Markdn132d ago

So you cite one franchise lol one, how many have they ruined, that's right, all the rest. Don't tell me weather I can reply or not, it's you that knows nothing and your low intellect means you need to resort to vulgar language to make it seem like you know what your on about. The only facts you brought is your butt hurt and can't listen to the facts.

@darth, Spencer is proven liar based on his public statements vs what he says in private communications. His pronouncements are worthless and it's a testament to how gullible the public can be to take Spencers comments seriously.

darthv72133d ago

So you dont trust every word he says, got it and noted in history

derek133d ago

@darth, trust? I don't trust any of these executives especially that phony liar Phil Spencer.

gold_drake133d ago

ugh hes such a fame wh*re.

we've never seen ceo's on so many podcasts or interviews before him.

Futureshark133d ago

I wonder if the inevitable Master Chief CoD skin will find it's way to the PlayStation store then...

A note from Laura Miele, President of EA Entertainment and Technology

Laura Miele writes:

"[Re: Respawn] ... we have decided to pivot away from early development on a Star Wars FPS Action game to focus our efforts on new projects based on our owned brands while providing support for existing games."

"[Re: Battlefield Studios] ... we immediately appointed leadership at Criterion to oversee our single-player work. As part of this change, we'll be winding down Ridgeline as a standalone studio in Seattle, with some team members joining Ripple Effect. They'll continue to work with teams across DICE, Ripple, and Criterion as they build the next Battlefield experience."

"[Re Mobile] ... we have brought together the mobile and HD franchise teams under singular leadership across EA SPORTS FC, Madden NFL, and The Sims. The next step is setting up our standalone mobile portfolio for growth. Over the past few weeks, we have announced we are sunsetting Kim Kardashian Hollywood, Lord of the Rings, Tap Sports Baseball, and F1 Mobile."

SimpleSlave7h ago

If true, then VERY smart move by EA. No one wanted this game. No one at all. I mean, a possibly First Person Titanfall like game starting the Mandalorian??? PFFT!!! As if...MID!!!

EA Sports - There is no Game!

Tacoboto7h ago

And just a week ago we were excited for a Mandalorian FPS. And more job losses - 1500 industry workers in just Sony and EA alone this week so far. Terrible news after terrible news.

RaidenBlack7h ago

WTF?!?!
They cancelled the most anticipated EA game from Respawn devs?
Are you ******* kidding me ?!
