New Battlefield still on track for Holiday 2016 release.
EA revealed its fiscal year 2015 results for the quarter ending on December 31st 2014 and noted that total net revenue was at $1.13 billion. CEO Andrew Wilson also noted that the next Battlefield – the one after Visceral Games’ Battlefield: Hardline – is still on track for a Holiday 2016 release.
Other noteworthy details included the return of Need for Speed in the publisher’s rotation from the next fiscal year, Star Wars Battlefront out in Holiday 2015 and a new PGA Tour for release by June end. That means we’ll have another E3 press conference where EA wastes time on its sports games. Joy.
Total net revenue for the nine months ending the third quarter was $3.3 billion with net income at $142 million. Net revenue year on year was $808 million, representing a 33 percent gain, as net loss year on year is at $308 million. EA’s Ultimate Team modes have helped with digital revenue with $693 million coming in from digital alone. However, it was Battlefield Premium that represented the bulk of digital revenue.
