Electronic Arts' president of labels Frank Gibeau revealed in an interview with the New York Times that the company is working on a Battlefield mobile game.
When asked whether he believed that a game like Battlefield could be enjoyed on a smaller screen, Gibeau said that aside from being able to play Battlefield 4 on a tablet in Commander Mode, the studio is already working on a mobile iteration of the series.
"We are working on a mobile game of Battlefield that will be high-end and high performance," Gibeau said. "It's our bet that we can successfully pull that off. But we're embarking on something no one has ever done before — to get these games to inter-operate between platforms. Will it work? It already has in some cases. Will it work for all franchises? Not all franchises will make the transition. Battlefield might be a little harder."
