EA SPORTSAnnual FIFA games could be a thing of the past

Even casual gamers likely have noticed the industry's shift away from physical releases and toward digital releases in recent years.
In a new interview with Bloomberg, Wilson talks about the possibility of making EA's sports games a little more long-lasting. Regardless of how you feel, Electronic Arts chief Andrew Wilson envisions a future where his company may drop yearly Madden and Federation Internationale de Football Association releases. Wilson compared the new subscription model like a "365-day, live service".
But in Korea or China, the service doesn't quite work the same way and EA instead releases a "big new code drop" every four years or so in order to offer incremental change over time. EA Access is the company's $5 per month service that lets players access a library of games that they can download and play on their Xbox One consoles.
"The greatest disruptor to the consumption of entertainment media in the last five years has been the combination of streaming plus subscription", Wilson told Chang. It also allows gamers to ensure they get copies of games the days they're released and avoid the headaches of empty shelves.
Wilson didn't lay out a road map for how this change might be implemented, but I'm sure many sports fans would be interested in purchasing a full-priced game once and adding to it with roster updates and Story Mode expansions in future seasons.
Although we now receive new installments of popular sports series such as Madden, FIFA, and National Hockey League on a yearly basis, new comments from EA suggest that this business model might not continue to be the norm in the future. The user base has continued to grow, Wilson said.
The world of mobile and free-to-play gaming is, typically, based on the idea of a constantly updating game, where changes come regularly as small updates whenever you come online.
"When we design a game that lives in a true streaming world, we have to think about screen size and session time. How does that manifest on your 60-inch TV, an hour at a time".
