It won't even have 1/10 of the playerbase COD WW2 has.
I'd rather these big blockbuster games focus more on crafting a cohesive, lengthy, and challenging singleplayer campaign. you can still have multiplayer, but they rely too much on the online experience which is exactly why modern FPS feel so dumbed-down. they're all the same run-n-gun, bunny hopping, sniper camping, chaotic grindfest. there's nothing to distinguish all these new FPS games from each other except for the name on box.
and the fools will still line up to shell out 70, 80 and 90 dollars for the DIGITAL DELUXE COLLECTOR'S EDITION of this crap. kind of a sad state of affairs. in 3 months there will be a DLC package that they want another 30, 40 dollars for.
Frankly this sounds like its coming from someone who doesn't play many FPS games online, if any. Is Battlefield 1 in any way similar experience to Advanced Warfare? is Advanced Warfare in the same alley as something like 2016's DOOM and is that game in the same vein as Overwatch or Battleborn?
There is a ton of variety on the market especially now. The days of a solitary brand of grey and brown shooters dominating the market are long gone.
