EA Releases Strong Q2 Financial Report, Did Better Than Predicted
EA has officially released its second quarter financial report, and it is looking great.
Due to a number of game releases, including Madden NFL 15, FIFA 15, and NHL 15, EA actually did better than expected. The company projected it would bring in around $965 million, but ended up reeling in a whopping $990 million, leading the publisher to raise its end of the year projections.
A large part of its revenue for the second quarter came in through digital purchases. On consoles alone, digital purchases increased by 95 percent from previous quarters, largely due to the Ultimate Team in-game transactions. On PC, digital purchases only went up by around six percent, and mobile devices only increased their digital purchases by 11 percent.
EA is still set to publish a few other games this year, including the RPG title Dragon Age: Inquisition, which is set to come out on November 18. Which EA games do you play? Are you surprised to see the company doing so well?
