EA Financials

Electronic Arts Reports Q2 FY19 Financial Results with their preliminary report for the period ending September 30th. "It was a strong second quarter, as we entertained players with four high-quality new EA SPORTS games, hundreds of content updates in our live services, and esports programs that reached record viewership," said CEO Andrew Wilson. "We’re incredibly excited to bring innovative new games like Battlefield V and Command & Conquer: Rivals to our players this holiday season, and launch our breakthrough new IP Anthem in February. We’re set to deliver some amazing new ways to play and compete through the rest of this fiscal year and beyond." We're locked and loaded with some bullet points:

That’s not saying much. EA NHL has been horrible for at least the last 5 generations.

Not to mention it's the *only* NHL game on current generation consoles. Being the highest-rated NHL game isn't that impressive when there's no competition.
