And it'll be headed up by Peter Moore, who's job title will be changing ever so slightly from Chief Operating Officer to Chief Competition Officer. This new division, called the EA Competitive Gaming Division, will, "enable global eSports competitions in our biggest franchises including FIFA, Madden NFL, Battlefield and more." Here's hoping they somehow find a way to fit The Sims in there.

The announcement came via a press release filled with so much market-speak as to almost read like a parody.
The Comepetitive Gaming Division will be built around three core pillars:
  • Competition – To create highly-engaging competitive experiences with our games, officially supported by Electronic Arts.
  • Community – To celebrate, connect and grow our community of players across all levels of expertise.
  • Entertainment – To develop live events and broadcasting that bring the spectacle of competition to millions of people around the world.


  • Actually, this is good news for the company and the industry. Which is slowly but surely embracing eSports, and with this announcement from EA we're one step closer to eSports going mainstream. Like footing ball, soccering circle, and that one Aussies love. Cricketing Bat.

    I can't really get behind Sports Games being eSport titles. Why watch someone play a video game of Football when you can watch the real thing?

    Cars with rockets playing football though, "That" should be eSports :)

    Yeah for EA to run an eSports competition, they would first require games that aren't huge piles of s***.
    The sports games for sure will be decent, but running competitive BF4 or other EA shooters just won't work with the real lack of strategy and teamwork in the map designs.
    Plus can you really get 32 pro players on one team?

    this will never work, ea brings out a game every year. which also means its hard to be competitive with a game that only last 6months. It took me a long time not to fall for their hipe in games but i am totally against them now.
