If there is any gaming company that has control of the sports world, it is EA. Yes, there are definitely other great standout sports games not made by them, even if half of them have Mario in them. It is hard to deny EA though, from Madden and FIFA titles alone. Could they be extending their reach on the sports games market even more?
In an interview with Game Informer, Matt Bilbey and Cam Weber, both Vice Presidents and General Managers of their respective EA headquarters, stated some changes that could come from high demand. What changes were they discussing? Well, the subject came up of bringing more of their sports titles to PC. Right now the only one on that particular market is the FIFA series.
“PC is literally based on demand,” Bilbey stated. “There’s still the high demand for FIFA on the PC globally because of the global appetite for the game. I think that’s less so with Madden, but I think if that changes and an opportunity presents itself, I think we would definitely leverage the opportunity.”
They also mentioned the fact that EA has moved over to the Frostbite Engine, which was originally designed for PC. This would make the transition much easier. Would you like to see Madden, UFC, and other hit titles on PC?
