EA commits $80 million on next-gen consoles

Posted on Wednesday, May 09 2012 @ 21:24:39 CEST by

GamesIndustry reports EA has set aside $80 million to invest in the creation of games for next-generation consoles. EA didn't go into the details, but with current top AAA titles already exceeding $80 million in overall development costs we aren't sure what to think of this.
Electronic Arts made it clear in its earnings call today that it intends to compete in the next-gen console space, promising an $80 million investment in next-generation consoles over their 2013 fiscal year (which covers the period from April 1 2012 to March 31 2013). "We intend to invest $80 million in gen-4 console development in fiscal 2013," said EA CEO John Riccitiello in his prepared remarks. "We are strong believers that console will return to strong growth, representing great opportunity, one that is in lockstep with our digital plan."

This commitment comes despite the admission that packaged good sales have dropped seven percent in the last year for EA, and they expect to see another single-digit decline in packaged goods in FY 2013. This will be more than offset by the 40 percent growth they expect in digital revenue for the year, though. Overall, EA sees their comprehensive platform strategy as the way to get further growth from their console titles, and this extends to the next-gen consoles as well.
