The publisher’s third-quarter results are in, and despite some big numbers for games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, FIFA, and Apex Legends, and almost $1 billion banked with microtransactions, its conspicuous omissions are… conspicuous.
EA’s revenue in this 2019 period clocked in at $1.593 billion, according to Gamespot, with its “live services” constituting about $993 million of that – this includes microtransaction sales, mostly via its FIFA, Madden, and NHL sports game franchises. As expected, perhaps, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Apex Legends boosted those income stats too, with Need for Speed Heat and The Sims 4 also credited on the company’s top list.
