“EA jumping above the rest…”
The richer get richer, especially in EA’s case. EA have reported a whopping revenue of $1.08bn for its most recent quarter mathing industry expectations.
FIFA 13 has certainly helped shifting 7.4million units in four weeks making it the strongest sports game launch ever. Oh, and Madden sales are also up 9%.
“EA is performing well, once again beating street consensus in fiscal Q2,” CEO John Riccitiello stated. “We delivered yet another quarter of sharp digital growth, with digital revenue up 40 per cent compared to the same period last year, reflecting our strength across multiple brands and channels.”
“Record numbers of players have engaged in the online features and content downloads for FIFA 13, Madden NFL 13, and Battlefield,” EA President Frank Gibeau added.
“On the strength of our digital extensions, FIFA and Battlefield are the two biggest revenue events in our company’s history. Both are well on their way to becoming billion dollar annual franchises.”
Must be nice to be EA. They do have some cracking games in their locker though. Have you contributed to the sales? Thoughts in a comment below.
