At our core, Electronic Arts is a game maker that connects hundreds of millions of players from around the globe to some of the world’s greatest games. The EAX team is driving the strategy and implementation of important initiatives for EA’s community of players to connect them to one another and to the games they love to play. These initiatives include: EA Play, our cross-platform subscription currently on Origin, PS4, Xbox One and Steam, with more to come in the future, EA’s gaming service on PC; and a host of other consumer experiences and strategies to connect friends across platforms and within our games.
