EA and DICE are really taking the promotion of Battlefield 1 serious. They gained a lot of positive momentum based on a lot of the negative community feedback directed at Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. So as long as they don’t do anything stupid with microtransactions or some other anti-consumer practice, it’s possible they could have a huge hit on their hands come October 21st.
