Q4 was more prosperous for EA than the publisher had predicted, with GAAP revenues of $1.19bn.

Digital accounted for the majority of that number at $614m while physical claimed $571m. That's a reverse on the previous year when digital stood at $491m and physical at $632m.

Full year revenues hit $4.5bn, up from $3.6bn the previous year, with net income of $806m. For the year ahead EA expects revenues of $4.4bn.

The company also confirmed that having missed a year in 2014, a new Need for Speed title will be released for consoles and PC this Q4 alongside DICE's shooter Star Wars: Battlefront. They will be joined in the first quarter of 2016 by Mirror's Edge 2 and a new Plants vs Zombies.

With a clear focus on putting our players first, fiscal-year 2015 was an exceptional year for Electronic Arts,” CEO Andrew Wilson said. We introduced award-winning games, delivered enduring entertainment in our live services, and forged deeper relationships with a growing global audience across consoles, mobile devices, and PC.

"EA continues to sharpen our focus and speed, and in the year ahead we will engage more players on more platforms with new experiences like Star Wars Battlefront, FIFA 16, Minions Paradise and more."
