Electronic Arts is seeing increased revenue from digital, including $115 from digital FIFA titles like FIFA Online 2 and FIFA World Class Soccer that combined for over $50 million. Mobile titles saw a 60 percent increase in mobile revenue and the Battlefield 3 Premium service has now sold over 2 million subscriptions to date.
“EA is performing well, once again beating street consensus in fiscal Q2,” said CEO John Riccitiello. “We delivered yet another quarter of sharp digital growth, with digital revenue up 40 percent compared to the same period last year, reflecting our strength across multiple brands and channels.”
The number of digital registered users increased from 140 million last year to 250 million, though social game users dropped from 101 million MAU last year to 42 million MAU. Origin has over 30 million users, including 13 million mobile users, and EA has signed agreements with 71 independent companies for the online retailer.
