In a statement published on IGN, AMD said that a relationship could be made between the two companies due to the fact that AMD hardware is found in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Due to the PC-like architecture in the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the PC version Battlefield 4 will ship optimised for AMD components.
“DICE has a partnership with AMD specifically for Battlefield 4 on PC to showcase and optimize the game for AMD hardware,” an EA spokesperson said. “This does not exclude DICE from working with other partners to ensure players have a great experience across a wide set of PCs for all their titles.”
“It makes sense that game developers would focus on AMD hardware with AMD hardware being the backbone of the next console generation. At this time, though, our relationship with DICE and EA is exclusively focused on Battlefield 4 and its performance optimizations for AMD CPUs, GPUs and APUs,” AMD representatives said. “Additionally, the AMD Gaming Evolved program undertakes no efforts to prevent our competition from optimizing for games before their release.”
