Sports game juggernaut Electronic Arts has doubled it’s stock over the last year according the last week’s market. Sitting at $72.07, the stock is at its highest value to date. After plummeting to shares under $12 dollars in 2008, EA stock is, according to CNBC, “one of the best performing stocks in the S&P 500.”
Much of the credit should go to CEO Andrew Wilson, who took the reigns from John Riccitello in 2013. Record digital sales played a big part in EA’s success with much of its revenue coming from Ultimate Team and mobile games.
Besides EA’s stellar roster of sports games, fans can expect a highly regarded Battlefront game as well as new installments of Need For Speed and Mirror’s Edge.
