EA Mobile Q4 Revenues Total $35M
Flat, but still industry-leading...
Electronic Arts today announced its consolidated Q4 results, with EA Mobile generating a total of $35 million, or 3% of EA's total revenue of $1,281 million. Comparisons to EA Mobile revenue in the same period the year previous hold little bearing, as independent mobile publisher Jamdat was acquired by EA and rebranded as EA Mobile in early 2006.
EA's results do show that mobile revenues have experienced little to no growth since the Jamdat acquisition, however. Mobile revenues in Q2 and Q3 totaled $33 million, and $35 million respectively. EA remains optimistic regarding its mobile results, however.
"Our digital revenue hit a record $115 million over the last twelve months and our mobile revenue reached $100 million in the past nine months alone," Chief Financial and Administrative Officer Warren Jenson said in a statement.
According to MocoNews, EA noted in it conference call that it took four of the top five games in both North America and the UK during the quarter, and that it claimed 29% marketshare North America and more than 15% marketshare in Europe.
As a comparison, Gameloft, one of the only other mobile publishers to publicly disclose results, announced $28 million in revenue for the quarter.
