Tens of millions of new players dove into EA games during the pandemic
Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson said in an earnings call with analysts today that tens of millions of new players have joined the company’s games since April. Tens of millions of new players have come into our games, and we also have many players returning to our franchises after some time away. Seven million new FIFA players joined during the quarter, and FIFA Online 4 has now reached nearly 30 million players to date. “Looking forward, we’re also seeing strong engagement” in the second fiscal quarter, Wilson said. In the third fiscal quarter, EA expects bookings of $875 million.
