EA’s loot boxes aren’t going anywhere

It's a fairly turbulent time for games publishers looking for a little post-launch monetization in the form of loot boxes, but that isn't stopping Electronic Arts.

This was true for both Battlefield and Call of Duty, but in recent years, we've seen both series move away from World War II as a backdrop. That all changed last year, when Activision took everyone by surprise in announcing Call of Duty: WWII, which went on to become the 2017's best-selling game.
