Andrew Wilson Confirms EA Star Wars’ Success
Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson recently confirmed during a quarterly earnings call that EA’s Star Wars games during the company’s exclusivity deal with Disney reached $3 billion in revenue to date. This figure includes all EA Star Wars titles released since 2015’s Star Wars: Battlefront. The most recently released EA Star Wars title is Star Wars: Squadrons, which is available right now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
While Andrew Wilson didn’t specifically mention all of the Star Wars titles EA has released since the Disney exclusivity deal began, the $3 billion figure includes Star Wars: Battlefront (2015), Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (2017) Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Star Wars: Squadrons, and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Galaxy of Heroes alone brought in $1 billion despite being a free-to-play mobile game. A lot of scorned Star Wars fans may be concerned with how much revenue EA has brought in with the license, but it looks like they were mostly a success.
During the recent quarterly earnings call, Andrew Wilson was asked about EA producing fewer Star Wars titles due to the loss of exclusivity to which he said, “I don’t think you should imagine that the fact that some other people will build some Star Wars games is going to change our commitment to that IP or our ability to build the appropriate number of games.” While some players may be looking forward to the upcoming Ubisoft Star Wars title, it looks like EA is still far from done with the license.
