He told MCV: We are aligning ourselves with quality whether that comes from internally developed or externally developed teams.
It is our goal to bring the highest quality talent to all platforms. By chasing and being obsessed with quality experiences we can delight customers – and bring them back so that when they see it is an EA game, made by either an internal or external team, they know it is great quality.”
