This sets the precedent that unknown issues have cost them a chance to release the title prior to Call of Duty. This has clearly put Activision in a significantly better position and the streamers offered their thoughts. Doc seemed extremely disappointed with the delay, while Tim feels it will favor Activision greatly.

Dr Disrespect feels it will put too much pressure on Activision

The 39-year-old streamer had a different opinion about this update than his counterparts. He feels, if the game fails to have a positive impact on the community, then it will bring more eyes to Battlefield than before. Activision will have to come up with a solid product that can stand on its own feet in order to best EA.

The streamer predicts that Battlefield is going to feature a Battle Royale mode of its own, despite the reports suggesting otherwise. Naturally, if Call of Duty fails to impress, then the community will jump ship to Battlefield, which could affect the sales.

“I don’t know man, it actually puts a little pressure on Call of Duty. Now, Call of Duty’s like, they’ve gotta meet a certain level of expectation or else’s it’s gonna get boring real fast and then boom Battlefield comes out then boom, boom, boom, Battle Royale.”
