Rex Pascual, eSports editor at Safe betting Sites Australia, commented:
“EA’s impressive start to its 2022 FY can be attributed to strong performances in releases of its marquee titles such as Battlefield 2042 as well as the strength of their live services segment. The gaming industry is going through a paradigm shift in that business models are now transitioning from the full single game model to a subscription-based model, which paints a rosy picture for the coming years, not just for EA but for the entire gaming industry.”
