Rumor: Will Nexon Make EA Fire EA?

Here comes the “pink slip express” with Trump spinners saying “you’re fired”. But a Korean woman, Juri, whispers like a mob boss, “I’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse”… EA: Hey, I’m a married man! I’m not falling for that like the Secret Service… JURI: I want EA like I want DLC… EA: How high do I have to jump again, Nexon? True Story.

If Nexon does buy ea i hope bioware buy themselves out before it happens, otherwise incoming chibi mass effect mmo with 90's gfx and pay to win combat.

Even ea doesnt deserve this they brought alot of new ip's to the table, but then they fill em with dlc if they quit that maybe they wouldnt be the most hated gaming company together with actirehash.

zeal0us4441d ago

That would be the mass effect mmo I would hate to see.

EA won't let themselves be brought by Nexon.
Nexon should go after some other companies, Aeria would be a good one.

dcbronco4441d ago

It's not like they could stop it. They are publicly traded. The stockholders will take an offer if it is high enough. Nexon could buy all of the available stock and become the biggest holder and force the issue from the inside. This is what poor management does to public companies. EA isn't really the worse company in the world. But they have weakened themselves by being greed and now have to suffer for it.

NYC_Gamer4441d ago (Edited 4441d ago )

EA couldn't stop Nexon or any other company from buying up the shares....EA=public not private....That's why Valve is private for that very soon because there can be no hostile takeover..

GamingPerson4441d ago

You know free 2 play games are serious business when you can buy EA. wow.

raytraceme4441d ago

F* nexon. They are worse than activision when it comes to shooters and f2p games are way too overpriced if you want to have fun or have ocd. I hope google can come in and take ea into their hands.

a Korean/Japanese company merge with EA? Very nice, so everything wrong with video game developing will be put together for us it's easier to dodge.

MOFOs going to burn. Ea better not fall for their BS.

EA Hiring Ex-Military Personnel to Help Build Next Battlefield Game via "Hiring Our Heroes" Program

EA has hired ex-military personnel in order to help shape the next Battlefield game as part of the Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) program.

OtterX9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

Why don't you Hire Your Old Dev Team who brought us the brilliance of Battlefield Bad Company 2 while you're at it. It was more exciting than anything recent in the Battlefield series. It just needs to be updated to reach modern times, but it was so great at its core.

just_looken9d ago

This would be nice but that team has tossed out the finals and has arc raiders on the back burner

20 thousand still play the final's

Why get slapped around by ea when you already have something going on.

What the next battlefield needs is a step back simple functional not a live service and smaller player servers than 2042. Just make it like battlefiled 3 with bad company destruction just something simple

But they already killed off ridgeline games that had ex halo/cod devs so no singleplayer unless they make another dev team for it.

It's what made zipper and slant six awesome. They had military vets working for them, no just as consultants, but as developers as well. I wish Sony never closed them, MAG 2 or an update to MAG and a new socom is much needed.

just_looken9d ago

Older ps3 battlefield titles did the same even went to the range to get sound files.

But all these titles we are talking about were on the ps3 a console so powerful it offered free mp and games did not need 4 levels of payment plans even more crazy was the player size of mag's games.

TheColbertinator8d ago

A return to the golden age of Battlefield seems so far away now

Str8Chaos748d ago

Sadly I think you are correct. They just don’t get it. They will do their live service game with its Battle Royale and fail at both.I hate being so negative, but I have little faith in EA at this point.

There are no "thoughtful" ads in video games, EA

I think the only type of games that can gets away with it would be sport games, having those sponsors ads on the side like on real life.

But don't put freaking Doritos ads in Star Wars or something, it breaks the immersion. If it is a pop-up ads, then big no.

Hofstaderman38d ago

EA can thoughtfully eff themselves.

EA coming back for the crown of being perceived as the worst company in gaming.

Chocoburger37d ago (Edited 37d ago )

One of my favorite series is the THPS franchise, and it was packed with ads, but it didn't bother me. Posters for skateboard companies, JEEP, and Nokia phones. It did sort of fit in with the game world, but that was the past, these days ad would be intentionally intrusive or unskippable loading screen type of imagery. Ugh, I know EA would do it in a horrible fashion. Screw them.

Too bad for the best fps there is atm...

Sgt_Slaughter41d ago

The market for games like this is too over saturated to make a dent in other established games' player counts. Trying to start all over with a whole new multiplayer meta and grinding to get better is not feasible when there's already a ton of similar games that have come out before it.
