You are able to have a look at the figures (in thousand dollars) from the table below. The writer registered a net reduction during the quarter of 186 million dollars.
Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson followed the media release with a statement.
“Players enjoyed hundreds of millions of hours in our games around console, cellular and PC during the holiday quarter, and we’re thrilled to see our titles driving excitement for more fans around the world, We’re expanding the range of our leading franchises across more geographies our competitions are increasing in involvement and viewership, and we’re continuing to cultivate our network with more amazing games and content coming this quarter and past.”
A second statement was also provided by Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen.

The press release also included several highlights underlining key accomplishments for the market from the past quarter. Electronic Arts boasts a 18% growth of overall earnings (net bookings) from the past twelve months, 42 million players around the FIFA franchise on consoles, and 25 million unique players to Battlefield 1 as launching.
There isn’t far for Star Wars: Battlefront II, besides the mention that “nearly” 70% of players tried from the single-player campaign. The conspicuous lack of any mention of sales likely means there isn’t much to discuss in regard to positive data, but we’ll perhaps hear more from the subsequent earnings call that will be hosted after today.
Earlier this past year, Electronics removed microtransactions in the game but said it would not have any effect on its fiscal outlook.
- Digital net bookings for the trailing twelve months has been a record $3.375 billion, up 18%, and represents 67% of total internet reservations for the same period.
- FIFA Mobile added 26 million players into its whole player base in this quarter.
- Battlefield™ 1 now has more than 25 million unique players life up to now.
- The Madden Challenge entertainment particular on The CW Network was the #1 esports television broadcast at the U.S. to get 2017.
We also get a look at the prognosis for the whole fiscal year, which will end on March 31st, 2018.
