EA mobile revenues dip to $158 million as FIFA Mobile scores 113 million downloads

Electronic Arts has released its financials for its Q2 FY18 for the three months ending September 30th 2017.

It posted revenues of $959 million for the quarter, up 6.79% year-on-year. Its net loss for the quarter also decreased by 42.1% year-on-year to a loss of $22 million.

Breaking this down further, its mobile games generated $158 million for the quarter, up 6% year-on-year. However, this does represent a quarter-on-quarter decline of 6.5%.

Holding fast

Madden NFL Mobile and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes were highlighted as key drivers of growth, with the former seeing a "significant" increase in unique players. FIFA Mobile also hit 113 million downloads during the quarter.

"The digital transformation is accelerating across our industry, and we are well-positioned for continued growth with more stunning new titles, thriving event-driven live services including competitive gaming, and continuing innovation for our players on all platforms," said Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson.

EA did not outline any of its future plans for mobile. It currently has The Sims Mobile in soft launch, though there was no indication of when this might launch worldwide.
