Electronic Arts may have already own a few titles in the Android marketplace. But sure, they are not as conspicuous on the Android platform as they are on the iOS App Store. With Android gaining a lot of marketshare lately, it looks like EA may have finally woken up to Android. We hear that the popular Madden NFL 11 gaming application shall soon be making its way to the Android market. This comes directly from the company in a tweet posted recently.
Eric Brown, the CFO at Electronic Arts has also indicated that Android shall be the company’s new priority. In a talk at the Deutsche Bank Tech Conference held recently, Brown said,
“So I think there’s a lot to happen in the future in Android, and we’re trying to position our mobile business to take advantage of that trend. I think the next big positive wave to push better growth in mobile will be the deployment of an App Store equivalent for the Android operating system. We think long term … the Android market is going to take its share.”
I think it’s just a matter of time before all the other popular titles from EA make it to the Android marketplace.
