EA's Three Priorities For Game Development

by Joe Juba on Oct 29, 2013 at 11:31 AM

In his first quarterly financial call since becoming EA's CEO, Andrew Wilson outlined his goals for the company's game development business.

Speaking to investors, Wilson clarified his vision for EA's future, identifying three priorities the company will focus on in creating its products. First, he wants to deliver amazing games and services. Second, he wants to emphasize people and strategies, including bringing games to a variety of platforms and geographies (though maybe not the Wii U). Lastly, he wants to make games profitably.

Those all seem like admirable goals. Now we have to see if EA has the follow-through to attain them. 


Our Take
Setting goals is not difficult, but meeting them can be a challenge. Those three priorities can often be in conflict with each other; creating amazing games isn't cheap, and neither is bringing them to various regions around the world. Even though it's easier said than done, EA might be able to pull it off. The company did just report some impressive financial results, after all.
