EA Asia boss Jon Niermann has admitted that revenue for the publisher in the region is lower than target, but has pointed to a heavy release schedule of online game to boost funds.
“It’s nowhere where it needs to be. We need to get that growth significantly higher,” Niermann told the AP.
Asian revenues account for 6 percent of EA’s overall tally, the exec said.
Niermann said EA hopes to increase its market share in Asia by launching more online games, with 12 editions of different games expected to roll out this year.
EA has already launched online versions of FIFA, NBA Street and WAR in the region, with Battlefield Heroes to follow. The online version of Need for Speed, which was developed in Singapore, will launch next year.

Speaking to CVG, PES dev boss Shingo ‘Seabass’ Takatsuka has said that not only does he consider the FIFA engine to be “really superb,” but he’d consider using it for the Konami soccer stalwart, given half the chance.
“I would think about it really seriously because I still believe that EA’s engine and animation is really superb, very good,” he said.
“The modelling of the characters is perhaps not really to my taste actually, so I might not take that part, but seriously, I think their engine and their motion style is really great.”
Blimey. Check out the full interview through the link.

“As more and more people come into interactive entertainment, we are ready with the best games in sports, action, casual, horror, simulation, and online. We’ll be bringing more new games to market this year than in our history, and Leipzig is a great European window to showcase those offerings for the broad range of people that love to play them.”
