This year, Electronic Arts is breaking with tradition and won't be hosting a press conference at E3 2019.

Apex Legends strategy is failing: Can the game survive?

When it was released in February, Apex Legends impressed pretty much everyone with its explosive popularity. Now, it seems, that popularity may have fallen off significantly.

EA Access finally heads to PS4 this summer

EA Access is a service that has been available on Xbox One for a number of years now - nearly five, to be a little more precise. All this time, PlayStation 4 owners have been left out in the cold.

Apex Legends isn’t pulling punches with cheating bans

Apex Legends isn’t pulling punches with cheating bans

While free-to-play games are great in the sense that they allow you to play without putting any money on the line, that low barrier to entry also means that they're a prime target for cheaters. Nowhere is this more obvious than in competitive games like Apex Legends and Fortnite. In fact, battle royale as a genre seems to attract cheaters, as PUBG has had its own problems with people skirting the rules, despite the fact that it costs $30 through Steam.

Why Electronic Arts just laid off 350 employees

Why Electronic Arts just laid off 350 employees

Electronic Arts has announced a round of layoffs which will see 350 employees lose their jobs. This announcement follows a similar move from Activision-Blizzard, which laid off 8% of its workforce back in February. 350 employees represents about 4% of EA's 9,000 employees, so this round of layoffs isn't quite as bad as the one that hit Activision last month. Still, it's further indication of a shaky period for some of the world's biggest publishers.
