Chief Studios Officer

With annual “FIFA,” “Madden NFL,” “NHL” and “UFC” releases, EA became the virtual home for sports while the actual industry shut down in the spring, seeing nearly $1.5 billion in revenue for calendar Q2 with over $1 billion coming from live services alone. Thanks to Miele’s wrangling of EA’s studios, they’ve churned out around 250 live service updates since March. October also saw EA release “Star Wars: Squadrons” to positive reception following critical acclaim and strong sales for 2019’s “Jedi: Fallen Order.” After previous backlash toward its “Star Wars” games over the use of microtransactions, EA is now wisely utilizing their “Star Wars” license for players seeking more traditional single-player experiences, a smart move given that 2019’s “Anthem,” a big-budget multiplayer shooter modeled as a live service, resulted in middling sales and poor critical reception.
