At Microsoft’s press conference at E3 2013, it was announced that the Battlefield 4 Second Assault DLC would be a timed exclusive on the Xbox One. Regarding this announcement, we have finally stumbled across a statement explaining why the assistance of this timed exclusive deal is present.
EA Games Label Executive Vice President Patrick Soderlund has provided the following statement in regards to the Battlefield 4 Second Assault timed exclusive deal.
“For the release of “Second Assault”, maintaining the cooperation with Microsoft is one of the reasons [it’s released there first], but it’s also partly because the multiplayer of BF3 has been strongly supported by the Xbox community, and we’re showing gratitude for that support.”
DICE has previously announced that this downloadable content for Battlefield 4 will include four map remakes from Battlefield 3.
