EA Comments On Buying New Studios, But Refuses To Discuss Warner Bros. Rumors

EA对收购新工作室的评论,但拒绝讨论华纳兄弟公司。

关于华纳兄弟互动娱乐(Warner Bros . Interactive Entertainment)即将上市的传言纷至沓来,游戏巨头电子艺术(Electronic Arts)对其收购制片公司的一般做法发表了评论。作为该公司最新盈利简报的一部分, EA 首席财务官集团(EA HNA)控制着该公司的货币版EA的布莱克·约根森(EA HNA Blake Jorgens -)对购买工作室“比以往任何时候都更感兴趣” 。他拒绝就华纳兄弟公司(Warner Bros .)发表具体评论,但他指出,当制片公司上市时,作为行星上最大的游戏公司之一的EA - — —通常是混在一起的。

约尔根森说, “我们很少有机会看到任何可以出售的东西。 ”“你可以想象… …人们打电话给我们,说我们是在考虑出售企业,或者我们是在考虑出卖自己。 ”如果很多人决定出售我们的生意,我们是他们希望作为长期家园来这里的。我们几乎可以看到一切" 。

约尔根森表示,他“无法对任何具体收购置评” ,但他指出, EA过去的收购来自长期合作伙伴关系。EA不一定有兴趣收购工作室,以获得自己的游戏组合— —相反,它希望投资于人才。所有这些肯定听上去像是EA并不追究华纳兄弟公司的责任。

他说, “正如你过去看到的那样,我们做得最好的地方是我们与人有长期关系的地方,我们真的在努力购买优秀的人才和游戏。 ”"我认为Respawn就是一个典型的例子。我们能够让他们参与进来,为他们提供了令人难以置信的支持,所有这些都是由他们拥有不可思议的才能这一事实驱动的。这并不是泰坦法尔对泰坦法尔的冒犯。这是一场精彩的游戏,也许你会看到蒂坦费尔在路上的一段时间。但这其实是团队的事。 ”

EA与Respawn就Titanfall的特许经营权合作多年,之后于2016年斥资数亿美元收购了Respawn 。近年来, Respawn继续表现良好,推出了广受欢迎的战斗皇家游戏Apex Legends和大获成功的星球大战绝地勋章(Star Wars Jedi : Fallen Order)。

展望未来,约尔根森表示, EA将“永远”考虑新成立的创意团队。然而, EA可能不会很快进行任何收购,部分原因是全球大流行病如何导致公司享有巨额财富,销售的可能性可能较小。

但总体而言,约尔根森表示, EA “比以往任何时候都更感兴趣,因为我们看到了人才,建立新的大特许经营权对公司的长期发展至关重要” 。

除EA 、 Take - Two 、 Activision和微软外,据报告它们都对探讨购买WBIE表示了一定程度的兴趣。该公司出版了《蝙蝠侠》(Batman : Arkham Knight , Middle - Earth : Shadow of War)和《 Mortal Kombat 11 》等书。

With rumors swirling that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is up for sale, gaming giant Electronic Arts has commented about its general approach toward buying studios. As part of the company's latest earnings briefing, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen--who controls the company's money--said EA is "more interested than ever" in buying studios. He refused to comment specifically on Warner Bros. but he pointed out that EA--as one of the biggest gaming companies on the planet--is usually in the mix when studios get put up for sale.

"It is very rare that we don't get a chance to look at anything that is up for sale," Jorgensen said. "You can imagine ... people call us and say we're thinking about selling the business or we're thinking about selling ourselves. We are a place that a lot of people want to come as a long-term home if they decide to sell the business. We get to look at almost everything."

Jorgensen said he "can't comment on any specific acquisition," but he pointed out that EA's acquisitions in the past have come from long-standing partnerships. EA isn't necessarily interested in snapping up a studio to get its portfolio of games--instead, it wants to invest in talent. All of this sure sounds like EA is not going after Warner Bros.

"As you've seen in the past, where we've done the best is where we have long-term relationships with people and we're really trying to buy great talent versus games," he said. "I think Respawn is a classic example of that. We were able to bring them into the fold and give them incredible support and it was all driven by the fact that they have incredible talent. It wasn't about Titanfall--no offense to Titanfall. It's an amazing game and maybe you'll see Titanfall some time down the road. But it was really about the team."

EA worked with Respawn for years on the Titanfall franchise before buying the company in 2016 for hundreds of millions of dollars. Respawn has continued to perform well in recent years, releasing the popular battle royale game Apex Legends and the massively successful Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Looking ahead, Jorgensen said EA will "always" look at new creative-led teams to acquire. However, EA may not make any acquisitions soon, due in part to how the global pandemic has led to companies enjoying great fortunes and may be less likely to sell.

But overall, Jorgensen said EA is "more interested than ever because we see talent, and building great new franchises is critical to the long-term growth of the business."

In addition to EA, Take-Two, Activision, and Microsoft have all reportedly expressed some level of interest in exploring a purchase of WBIE. The company publishes titles like Batman: Arkham Knight, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and Mortal Kombat 11, among many others.
