The American video game company has revealed it pulled in a revenue of $5.15 - up 6.2 per cent from last year - from March 2017 through to March 2018 - making an impressive profile $1.04 million, despite the controversy it faced last year.

EA CEO Andrew Wilson told Games Spot: "Fiscal 2018 was a year of strong growth and continued transformation for Electronic Arts, as we expanded the reach of our leading franchises like 'FIFA', 'Battlefield', and 'The Sims' to more players across more platforms and geographies.

"In the year ahead, we will expand the world of play with amazing new experiences and new IP, more competition, and industry-leading subscription programmes. There has never been a more exciting time to be engaging and entertaining global communities."

EA CFO Blake Jorgensen added: "Our success is driven by the way we have changed, and continue to change, our relationship with players. They want more depth in their favourite games, and fresh content that can hold their attention year-round.

"This has made our business much more stable and enabled us to deliver a dependable and growing cash flow to investors."
