During EA's most recent earnings call, CFO Blake Jorgensen stated that the company is "interested in experimenting" with free-to-play games. This, of course, follows on from the gigantic success of Fortnite -- a title that was brought up numerous times during the presentation.

Jorgensen was asked whether a game like Battlefield V would ever be taken apart and partially released as a free-to-play title, again, much like Fortnite. The EA boss said that there are no immediate plans for anything like that right now, but as the above quote indicates, it's certainly a possibility for the future.

Fortnite's at a point now where mega publishers like EA simply have to sit up and take notice. We're already seeing battle royale modes pop up in everything from the aforementioned Battlefield V to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but how long will it be before companies like EA and Activision attempt to create their own standalone version of Fortnite?
