EA Access is ‘surpassing expectations’

Users signing up to EA Access have exceeded expectation, according to EA.

Speaking at EA’s Q2 2015 Earnings Call last night (Tuesday, October 28th, 2014), CEO Andrew Wilson said: “EA Access membership has grown well beyond our early expectations and we anticipate continued momentum in the months ahead.”

EA Access is an Xbox One exclusive service which gives users access to a range of titles, including FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, Peggle 2 and Need for Speed: Rivals.

COO Peter Moore continued: “We’re seeing both empirical and anecdotal data that people now who are members of Access and of course, have access to games like FIFA and Madden, who’ve said that ordinarily they wouldn’t have gone out and bought them, are now experiencing them and enjoying them and our belief is the next time around when the games are launched, they will actually buy them.

“It’s turning into an incredible sampling program for us if you will, and obviously the value for money is there.”

When asked whether EA Access would ever arrive on the PlayStation 4, Peter Moore said that there was “nothing to talk about right now”, adding: “EA Access is surpassing all of our internal expectations with regard to subscriber numbers and it’s delivering exactly what we thought which would be a great way for gamers to get great value and experience more games.”
