Electronic Arts, also widely known as EA, has reportedly been entertaining conversations with major companies surrounding a potential merger or acquisition.

The report: EA executives may be looking to cash out.

  • A report from Puck states that EA's CEO Andrew Wilson held negotiations with NBCUniversal regarding a potential merger for the two companies, though it didn't work out.
  • The potential merger would have given NBCUniversal a major presentence in gaming and enabled opportunities for crossovers between the company's sports rights and EA's sports-based franchises, such as Madden.
  • The report later states that Wilson entertained conversations with major companies like Apple, Amazon, and Disney regarding a potential sale. Some sources claim that the company is "persistent in pursuing a sale" while others say that the games company is largely interested in a merger instead.

EA SPORTS FC is the new name of the company's popular franchise following the loss of its license with FIFA.

A wider lens: EA's desire to sell or merge with another company makes a lot of sense considering the current games landscape.
