Ultimate Team is 29% of EA’s revenue, made $1.62 billion last year

If you have ever wondered why companies keep pushing microtransactions in their games, it is because they work. EA’s latest SEC filings show that Ultimate Team made $1.62 billion for the fiscal year 2021.

That is 29% of EA’s net revenue that year, and the amount EA makes from Ultimate Team grows every year. Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad details Ultimate Team’s revenue since 2015 when it was sitting at $587 million.

Governments around the world are interested in regulating or possibly a ban of loot boxes. So what will EA do to protect what has become a pretty substantial part of its income?

We even have football players involved in awareness campaigns so that parent’s don’t get caught out by surprise credit card bills.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
