Why EA Isn't Going Down Any Time Soon

Roxanne: Everyone’s heard of the Star Wars Battlefront 2 AMA, and EA pulling microtransactions from the game not long thereafter.

They still might lose the Star Wars license if they piss Disney off some more. So far they have made a right hash of it and Disney are quick to give things the chop if they are not working out.

I doubt it the game is still selling and Disney hasn't ever shown a strong interest in gaming I don't think that's going to change even now that the have more popular licenses. I'm willing to bet they will finish out whatever contract they have with EA. If Disney wanted in the gaming market they could of made there own studio decades ago they have the talent for animators in spades and money for programmers. I wouldn't be surprised if they stuck with EA or went to Activi$ion. Disney see games as just another revenue stream nothing more nothing less.

Awwe, and here I was hoping for an article titled "Why EA Is Going Down.... ByeBye EA."

Maybe some day in the near future. One can only hope.

I doubt anyone wants EA to shut down out right, just a change in financial and creative direction for their games.
