[DroidGamer]Electronic Arts working on bringing back their Battlefield franchise to mobile devices

A has plenty of franchises in their catalog of games for a variety of platforms but their main FPS franchise called Battlefield is one that the company has big plans for in the near future. These plans pertain to bringing the franchise to mobile but it isn't just about bringing a port of the game over. It's also about having it 'inter-operate' with the game on other platforms as well, making it a true cross-platform mobile game. This is a trend we have been seeing lately as this is at least the third game in about a week that we've talked about heading our way that will contain cross-platform multiplayer with its PC/console brethren.

Speaking to the New York Times, EA Labels prez Frank Gibeau came out to speak on their Battlefield franchise and the fact the company has some big plans on putting the franchise back onto smaller screens along with integrating real cross-platform gamelay.

We are working on a mobile game of Battlefield that will be high-end and high-performance. 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. - EA Labels prez Frank Gibeau
EA does have some experience in bringing their bigger named franchises to Android and iOS with the appearances of Dead Space and Mass Effect. However trying to bring the next Battlefield game to mobile is a pretty big task for a lot of reasons. While graphics and performance are things to worry about, the real issue will how to allow the game to have cross-platform multiplayer without being completely unbalanced when PC/console gamers go up against mobile gamers. It won't be so bad if the mobile gamers use a controller but for those that don't, they will be at a pretty big disadvantage.

This is, of course, if the 'inter-operation' of Battlefield between the mobile version and its other platforms is actual multiplayer. It could be integrated in some other fashion for all we know. There was a release of Battlefield Bad Company 2 onto Android awhile back but the game has since disappeared from Google Play so this technically wouldn't be the first time EA has attempted this with the franchise.

I don't even like using a controller versus a mouse... but using a phone in online cross-platform multiplayer versus someone with a mouse?!
...

that just sounds... horrendous
