EA continued to set the pace as the most successful creators of sports games in the fiscal year 2015. EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen was “happy to announce” that EA had “exceeded our goals a full year ahead of schedule”.
Given the exponential growth of the gaming industry, especially in terms of in-game transactions, this is hardly a surprise but some of the figures are astonishing. In the fiscal year 2015, they had a net revenue of over $4 billion, of which over $2 billion was digital revenue. Also, between January and March 2015, over 13 billion hours of Fifa were played – that’s about 1.4 million years for anyone who was wondering, or the equivalent of 130 million people playing one hour per day. And that’s just Fifa.
So with EA having such a successful 2014-15, hopefully we will see some of these profits reinvested into the games to ensure they continue to satisfy the ever growing demand.
