It seems like we don’t go a week without hearing about a few video game studio acquisitions, and today we could very well hear about a pretty big one.
For victory (FTW) reports that today Amazon will announce its intention to acquire Electronic Arts (EA). EA has been a big hit in the industry for years with games like Apex Legends, mass effect, Battleground, and several sports titles, just to name a few. The company also has its own online distribution platform at Origin and owns several major studios such as BioWare, DICE, and Respawn Entertainment.
Amazon hasn’t been shy about trying to break into the video game market either, and it’s responsible for publishing both New World and Lost Ark, two MMORPGs for PC. You can also get free games through Amazon Prime, and the company also has a cloud gaming platform, Luna.
FTW has reached out to Electronic Arts and Amazon for comment. We will update this article as soon as there is new news.
