Ultimate Team of FIFA 21, Madden NFL21 and NHL 21 is worth 29% of EA's revenue

Ultimate Team of FIFA 21

Ultimate Team is an increasingly important portion of the sports games created by Electronic Arts. The reason is simple: it keeps players glued a disproportionate number of hours, but above all it makes them spend a lot of money. The demonstration comes from EA's latest tax data which indicates that 29% of all revenue of the company comes from FIFA 21 FUT and similar modalities found in Madden NFL21 and NHL 21.

As pointed out by Daniel Ahmad of Niko Partners, EA recorded in fiscal year 2021, which ended in March, 1.62 billion in revenues from Ultimate Team modes alone. Considering that the total revenues were 5.6 billion dollars, it means that these modalities are worth 29% of all the revenues of a giant like Electronic Arts.

Not only that, their weight within the The company's finances are steadily increasing: in 2015 EA was earning "only" $ 587 million from Ultimate Team.

Also for this reason EA is proving very careful and reactive in reacting and modifying its game in order not to run into problems related to the comparison of loot boxes with gambling. As is happening in some countries.

Ultimate Team, in fact, is based on the sale of loot boxes that contain player cards and other items, which players use to build teams and compete with each other online or against the AI. Without loot boxes, Ultimate Team would lose one of its main sources of making money, unless EA finds another way to bypass these limitations.
