Game was down 85% in pre-orders, compared to Black Ops 4, then 65% down in sales UK when comparing the first two weeks of battlefield 1 to 5. Target and Best Buy dropped the game's price to $30 just a week after launch. As a result EA's stock is also 40% down compared to E3 time.
This is exactly what happens when you pander to an audience that doesnt even play games.
You'll be clapping if 600 people lose their jobs? Most of whom didn't have a say in the direction of the game? Just to spite some top dog studio heads who will have another job within a week?
Jesus fucking Christ.
