Latest EA Earnings Call Confirms Anthem March 2019 Release

Multiple maps? Check. Yeah, definitely a new Battlefield. There were no mentions of the "new mode" in the upcoming Battlefield title being a battle royale. It would make sense if Wilson was subtly hinting at a beta, as something like that is specifically created to allow players to provide feedback after they participate in the testing.

CEO Andrew Wilson then lays on the hype, adding that EA are "deeply excited to launch this brand new franchise" calling the game "stunning and ambitious", a "fundamentally social experience", with an "epic and attractive environment that constantly evolves around players".

BioWare's new game, "Anthem", is quickly turning into one of the more eagerly anticipated titles of next year for a variety of reasons.

"We're deeply excited to launch this brand new franchise, and equally excited to work with our players to make Anthem a game they can't wait to play and share with their friends for years to come". There isn't a lot known about the game apart from its an RPG that has multiplayer, it looks to be released next year in March and, if we really want to be honest here, has a look that's similar to Bungie's Destiny.

According to the company's earnings release, the Battlefield community across current gen consoles and PC has hit more than 54 million players to date. EA also called attention to competitive growth in EA Sports titles, specifically calling out the Federation Internationale de Football Association and Madden franchises.

EA also predicted that the Nintendo Switch would be on 30 million sales by the end of this year, which will be almost twice it's current figure of around 17 million.

EA has announced a new two-year program to repurchase up to $2.4 billion of EA's common stock.

Fiscal year 2017-18 was a good year for The Sims too: there are now over 80 million Sims players across PC and mobile as of fiscal year end. It also revealed that the net cash provided by its operating activities for Q1 of 2018 was $615 million and a total of $1.692 billion for the entire fiscal year 2018. Much of this revenue comes from digital downloads and live services. For the full year, EA reported revenue of $5.15 billion (up from $4.85 billion in FY 2017) and net revenue of $1.04 billion (up from $967 million in 2017), making FY 2018 the publisher's biggest ever.
