    EA sees games as living organisms with regular content Moore

    EAs COO Peter Moore has discussed the companys approach to game life-spans and how regular updated content and streams of larger add-ons keep a title alive well after launch is now the foundation of how it approaches new releases. Moore stressed that this is no longer about a new core title releasing every few years, but that games are now like living organisms.


    In a video interview with
    Engadget, Moore said around the 03:15 mark that EA sees FIFA Ultimate Tea as a gold standard for how it views regular content. He stressed that this new wave of games shouldnt be viewed as a service, but that the disc or initial download is now considered a client and that regular content is then piled on top of it over a span of time.He said that in the old days the disc or client would release then the studio would take a holiday before working on the next release. But now, EA has content teams working constantly to add new value to titles, making them living, breathing organisms that thrive until the new client releases.
    Moore added that depending on where you live in the world, there are free-play-play editions of FIFA and Battlefield. He stressed, The ability for you to interact with those franchises on a free-to-play basis is going to be part and parcel of every franchise that we do.
    That last quote is interesting, as it suggests more EA franchises will be going free to play in future.

    I hate free-to-play, so let's hope not. This is just marketing bull$#@! anyway.
