EA announced that Peter Moore is moving into a new role as Executive Vice President and Chief Competition Officer for Electronic Arts, leading the EA Competitive Gaming Division (CGD). As the latest step in Ea’s journey to put players first, this group will enable global eSports competitions in the biggest franchises including FIFA, Madden NFL, Battlefield and more.
Competition – To create highly-engaging competitive experiences with games, officially supported by Electronic Arts.
· Community – To celebrate, connect and grow community of players across all levels of expertise.
· Entertainment – To develop live events and broadcasting that bring the spectacle of competition to millions of people around the world.
This announcement should solve the long lasting hunger for regional and national Madden game play. It would be awesome if Ea reached out to some of the guys who have already been successfully throwing Madden tournaments to host Ea Challenges in their regions. Non the less more exciting news and surprised from EA.
What will they do next ?
