EA Financials - Medal of Honor Getting a "Rest"

Electronic Arts Reports Q3 FY13 Financial Results has the latest preliminary earnings figures for the gaming giant. The losses they report are less than the same period last year, and things are going well according to top brass: "Despite a challenging quarter, we were able to deliver non-GAAP EPS at the high end of our guidance range," said Chief Executive Officer John Riccitiello. "We are investing for the future wave of growth that we foresee in digital and console." VG247 has details from the post earnings conference call, where some of the blame was for the quarter's losses was heaped upon Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which performed "well below expectations" and "didnít deliver," with COO Peter Moore saying the game also deserved better reviews than it received. Word is the military shooter franchise is being "taken out of rotation," and will return after an unspecified "rest."

Yes, pushing developers to make unrealistic release dates is stupid.

EA is dumb for doing this, not evil mind you, just really really dumb.

in a pragmatic approach, they're fucking their own bottom line by not understanding the way games are made, because some suit who's never visited a development studio says: "you know what'll save us money? just have them make the whole game in 1/3rd the normal development time!"

that's dumb, EA is stupid when they push dates like this.

and it's all because they got super butthurt by looking at CoD sales, and the green envy monster just destroyed the MoH franchise.

EA is dumb for doing shit like this, not evil. different. things.

No, they're evil because their motivation is quick returns for minimal output. They know what happens when you shove unfinished games out the door. They're not dumb, just greedy, which makes them evil.

That IP has been flogged like a donkey on the beach on the 4th of July. Same with CoD. Eventually the audience is going to get bored. Even the knuckle draggers.

Maybe it will go on sale steam now. I've wanted to try Warfighter but for some reason it never seems to go on sale. You'd think if it underperformed they'd discount the price put it on steam to push more units

I'm bemused how they're treating game titles as something akin to a prized race horse, as if it somehow needs to rest up between races.

I LOL'd. Well Mr. Moore, I think your company deserves less revenue than it received, but it just ain't happening. Boohoo.

Wow. They make an awful game and blame its performance on the reviewers?
