Jorgensen affirmed that it will offer players something entirely new and unique.

We'll be seeing more of Anthem next month in the EA showcase during E3 week.

"There were, understandably, some questions and concerns about story in multiplayer", he said. Multiple maps? Check. Yeah, definitely a new Battlefield. It had been reported recently that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will omit a campaign, possibly replacing it with a battle royale mode, which could cause campaign-focused players to jump ship to the Battlefield franchise. "Anthem represents one way to deliver innovation and new experiences in the spirit of our mission". Anthem will also be designed around player input.

Every dimension of this game will offer something entirely new for our audience of players, from a new universe with unique stories that BioWare is creating, to the cooperative gameplay, to the epic and attractive environment that constantly evolves around the players. This nearly 10 percent growth in business will be driven by the usual slate of sports titles, the next Battlefield game, and BioWare's new live-services-heavy online title Anthem, which EA is aiming to launch in the fourth quarter of FY 2019.

Anthem had been one of the games with female protagonists that we'd been looking forward to this year until EA confirmed that the game had been delayed to 2019 in order to accommodate a busy release schedule. It's expected to launch in March 2019.

The Battlefield community, across current generation consoles and PC HD, now has more than 54 million players life to date. EA also called attention to competitive growth in EA Sports titles, specifically calling out the Federation Internationale de Football Association and Madden franchises. As for Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and Madden NFL, those entries saw almost 18 million people compete in matches, an increase of over 75% year-over-year. He continued to discuss how this will affect the studio's ability to restock retailers, since it is the end of the fiscal year. It also revealed that the net cash provided by its operating activities for Q1 of 2018 was $615 million and a total of $1.692 billion for the entire fiscal year 2018. Therefore, EA will be able to calculate the IP's revenue in their earnings report.

Live services, which accounts for DLC, and other digital only properties, were record $2.2 billion. For more information about the adoption of Topic 606 and information with respect to mobile platform fees, please refer to the FAQ document, dated as of May 8, 2018, posted on our IR website. PC was up 11% to 174 million yoy. Results may be materially different and are affected by many factors detailed in this release and in EA's annual and quarterly SEC filings. Physical sales were flat year over year, with a slight uptick for the full year. The company's revenue shot up from $1.53 billion a year ago to $1.58 billion this year.
