EA is one of the largest publishers and developers in the video games industry, selling widely successful games such as the FIFA series.

Rumours have been spreading about the acquisition for weeks, as EA apparently looked for a parent company to make an offer.

Amazon, Disney, and Apple were all rumoured to be interested in the company.

However, it seems that the former is the first to make an offer.

Successful shows based on video games stories such as The Witcher and League of Legends Arcane already available on Netflix.

The rise in popularity of video game based TV shows could point to the reason why Amazon is so interested in the company.

EA owns a number of popular video game properties such as Mass Effect, Dead Space, Dragon Age, and Apex Legends.

The vast worlds of these games would be the perfect location for a TV series.

The rumoured acquisition could also have an implication for Amazon’s popular Prime Gaming benefits.

Subscribers to Amazon Prime are eligible to download a number of gaming goodies and games for free.

September will be a particularly strong month for the service which is offering AAA games.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Assassin’s Creed Origins, and Football Manager 2022 will all be available for subscribers.
