Electronic Arts put out its official release of its Q3 2022 earnings results via its investor relations website on February 2, 2022. The company boasted several highlights of the previous quarter.

“Q3 was the largest quarter in the company’s history for net bookings, underlying profitability and cash generation,” claimed CFO Blake Jorgensen.

In addition, the company shared that it had a record number of active account users playing EA games across its entire ecosystem - an estimated total of 540 million accounts overall. However, it couldn’t overcome Wall Street revenue expectations at all. Against an expected value of $2.68 billion USD, Electronic Arts was only able to put up around $2.577 billion for the quarter. As a result, in its guidance, EA stated that its estimated net bookings forecast for its 2022 fiscal year is expected to be $7.525 billion, down from its estimated $7.625 billion reported in its Q2 2022 earnings results. Despite this, some metric forecasts are up. Electronic Arts is currently expecting a net income on the fiscal year to be around $694 million (compared to $583 million in Q2 2022) and diluted earnings-per-share (EPS) to be around $2.43 per share (compared to $2.03).
