Electronic Arts (EA) CEO Andrew Wilson has announced in a public statement that the company’s studios will be realigned under two major organizations: EA Entertainment and EA SPORTS. Key figures and executives overseeing both departments were also announced in the statement.

The first organization, EA Entertainment, will cover “extraordinary owned IP,” among other things:

EA Entertainment encompasses extraordinary owned IP, including some of the world’s most beloved blockbuster franchises, as well as licensed IP through powerful collaborations. We’re building the future of interactive entertainment on a foundation of legendary franchises and innovative new experiences, which represents massive opportunities for growth.

EA Entertainment will be headed by Laura Miele, who will “oversee key studios, empowering them with more creative ownership.”

EA SPORTS, on the other hand, will be the organization that handles all sports-related IPs under EA.

EA SPORTS is home to some of the most valuable properties in all of sports, with an incredible portfolio of IP, massive online communities with hundreds of millions of fans, and more global rights for more sports than anywhere else in interactive entertainment. Cam Weber has been appointed President of EA SPORTS, guiding the organization responsible for our genre-leading EA SPORTS experiences and our entire racing portfolio. With expanded business ownership, he will accelerate the teams’ ambitious growth plans, including building EA SPORTS FC and our American football franchises into connected multi-platform ecosystems. Through Cam’s unparalleled leadership, our EA SPORTS teams are already the best in the business, and we are positioned to lead the future of sports fandom.

The statement concluded with Wilson assuring readers that EA “remains strong,” with the CEO sharing his excitement for the future.
