EA's FIFA Mobile drives Q3 FY18 mobile revenue growth with 139 million downloads

EA has released its financials for its Q3 FY18 for the three months ending December 31st 2017.

The company posted overall revenues of $1.16 billion for the quarter, up just 0.96% year-on-year. Net loss for the quarter came to $186 million, an increase from its loss of just $1 million in Q3 FY17.

Digital bookings for its mobile division came to $183 million, up 5.17% year-on-year. Actual revenue for the segment came to $166 million, an increase of 12% year-on-year.

Goooooooal

Growth for the quarter was driven mostly by FIFA Mobile, which gained an additional 26 million players during Q3. It had reached 113 million players in Q2 FY18, suggesting its overall downloads now sit at around 139 million.

EA did not have much else to say about its existing mobile games. Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes and The Sims FreePlay were mentioned as games which continue to engage their audiences.

Looking ahead, EA plans to release its currently soft-launched game The Sims Mobile in Q4 FY18. It also has plans for two new mobile games based on "fan-favourite IP" some time in FY19.
