During the company’s earnings report conference call on Tuesday, Electronic Arts announced that it’s Ultimate Team game mode from its EA Sports franchises raked in an astonishing $380 million for fiscal year 2014.
EA Sports Ultimate Team allows players to buy cards featuring players and stat-boosting properties with either real money or in-game currency. Those cards are then used to build teams, and compete against other players in online matches.
EA also revealed that, while FIFA continued to see success with Ultimate Team, Madden NFL Ultimate Team saw a 90-percent year-over-year growth.
Mike’s Musings: It’s really no surprise that Ultimate Team is bringing in millions of dollars to EA. This mode is a right to print money for the company, and fans seemingly can’t get enough of the ultimate version of fantasy sports.
