Snippet -

Electronic Arts and other top publishers have long been gunning for games as a service as opposed to games as a product, mostly because there’s a lot more money in forcing people to pay recurring fees to access games as opposed to only getting people to pay once to own a title. Well, EA’s CEO, Andrew Wilson, further cemented the point home that they really want to take away your ownership rights to your games within the next two to five years.

In a conference call following EA’s earnings being posted, GamesIndustry.biz captured a noteworthy quote from Wilson to investors, where he explained that within the span of two to five years, they want to further pursue streaming and subscription services…

“For many of those things, we actually think the time horizon is about five years-plus, but things like cloud and streaming we believe is in the 2-5 year time frame. When we think about subscription, we’re already seeing return from that and the combination of that with streaming in that 2-5 year time horizon could be very meaningful in terms of revenue addition for us.”
