Speaking during the publisher’s earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson announced that alongside the publisher’s EA Sports portfolio, the publisher is planning to add “multiple new franchises” in the coming years.
We also have plans to add our core EA SPORTS portfolio with multiple new franchises in the years ahead. In addition to our college esports expansion that we’ve just announced with ING Group, in the weeks ahead we’ll share more about another major new development in our esports program capitalizing on our growing fan base and demand from esports teams, sponsors and broadcasters.
Hopefully, this doesn’t mean that other gaming properties from the publisher will be put to bed to make room for these new franchises.
