Console Games Most Lucrative Platform

PC/Browser games generate the next largest revenue and in Q1 FY 2022 recorded $361 mln. Mobile Games generated more than $200 mln in quarterly revenue for the first time in a year after experiencing a 26.75% QoQ growth.

In terms of composition, EA’s Live Services and Other segment generates the largest share of revenue. In Q1 FY 2022, the segment generated more than $1 bln in quarterly revenue for the second quarter in a row, reaching $1.23 bln – a 12.14% QoQ increase. The other compositions also grew, albeit, more modestly.

“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,” explained Rex Pascual, eSports editor at Safe Betting Sites US.

“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.”
