As part of the current annual report, Blake J. Jorgensen of Electronic Arts revisited the subject of download content and may have suggested that Electronic Arts could take a short or long farewell to the Season Pass on selected titles.
Over the course of the night, the US publishing giant presented the annual report 2016/2017, which showed, among other things, that the company generated profits of 889 million dollars in the last fiscal year.
In addition, Blake J. Jorgensen of Electronic Arts discussed the subject of download content at an investor meeting and pointed out that EA assumes that the classic DLC will lose relevance sooner or later. In his statements, Jorgensen related to “Battlefield 1” and the upcoming shooter “Star Wars Battlefront 2“.
Electronic Arts: Farewell to the Season Pass?
As Jorgensen puts it, Electronic Arts is going to provide the new content of a title to as many people as possible, rather than offering it only to players who are willing to invest additional money into new content. What the whole thing ultimately means for the future of DLC from EA, left Jorgensen open.
At the moment it is speculated that with his statements he might have suggested a possible farewell to the season pass – at least for selected titles. Since Jorgensen talks about the fact that EA would like to focus on a kind of event-driven live service gameplay, it is assumed that Electronic Arts could orient itself towards Ubisoft’s approach.
The players of the “Rainbow Six Siege” have the opportunity to release new content such as maps or weapons with real money or in-game currency. A concept that has been exceptionally well received by the community.
