Made $69m in fiscal Q1 2013.
Games giant EA has done a fine job of building up its mobile division alongside its colossal console publishing machine.
But progress has been lumpy. Its most recent quarterly stats show revenues of $69 million dollars, which is down 20.6 per cent over Q4 fiscal 2012, but up 21 per cent year-over-year.
Overall, mobile revenues now account for 21.3 per cent of the total digital haul of $324 million, up slightly on Q4. They bagged 7.2 per cent of the company’s $955 million total sales.
Predictably, the smartphone portion grew again. It leapt 86 per cent year-over-year to $52 million to double the rev from feature phones, which was $27 million.
The figures also demonstrated that EA has bought well. It could be argued that the whole mobile adventure started when EA bought Jamdat (and thereby Tetris) in 2006. And last year it added PopCap, whose game Bejeweled Blitz was the company’s top grossing mobile product.
