    Default Microsoft to reveal EA partnership at Next Xbox event



    As the industry prepares for a highly anticipated Microsoft press conference in which it will showcase a new console for the first time in eight years, publisher Electronic Arts is preparing to step on stage to announce a key exclusivity agreement.

    CVG has learned that EA has secured a partnership with the Xbox firm, according to accounts from two sources who wished to remain anonymous. However, neither person was certain of what EA will show, nor what the terms of the exclusivity partnership will be.

    Due to the necessities of multiplatform development and publishing, it is likely that such a partnership will not extend beyond exclusive downloadable content, or staggered release dates. An outright exclusive EA game on the Next Xbox would be unlikely, and certainly a major coup for Microsoft if such a deal were to be secured.

    Last Wednesday, rival publisher Activision announced a key partnership with Sony which will result in - among other business obligations - exclusive add-on content for the PS4 edition of Destiny.

    While other major publishers, from Ubisoft to Square Enix to Capcom, also spoke at Sony's PS4 showcase, EA did not participate.

    Given the timing, it could be something to do with Battlefield 4. Will Battlefield 4 DLC arrive on the next Xbox first?

    Sony and EA struck a similar deal for Battlefield 3 DLC, which arrived on PS3 a week before everywhere else. If Microsoft has wrestled this deal to Xbox for Battlefield 4 - and the Call of Duty DLC deal continues - then Microsoft may have the big shooter market sewn up.

    However, EA's chief financial officer hinted at such a deal on Tuesday.

    I'd say, between now and E3, you are going to see a lot of stuff, and we are going to chose with our marketing teams when to announce.
