Federation Internationale de Football Association and Madden could move to subscription-based services

"The short answer is yes", Wilson told Bloomberg when asked if EA will ever stop releasing new titles for one of its franchises.

There are a few video games that you can count on being released every single year, and probably top of that list are EA Sports' behemoths Madden and Federation Internationale de Football Association.

If these games simple moved to one release every three years, with yearly updates in between, it would allow developers time to really overhaul the game from the ground up and change the experience through new game engines, modes and truly overhaul the graphics in a way they haven't been able to in the past. Instead, these games could switch to a digital "live service" or subscription model, with incremental updates throughout the year.

"When we design a game that lives in a true streaming world, we have to think about screen size and session time", Wilson said. Now, however, it seems like EA might finally be moving away from this model and looking at Madden and Federation Internationale de Football Association as ongoing platforms rather than annual isolated releases, according to an interview with Bloomberg. But with DLC, it would not cost the same price as a full game, rather than just update it at the end of each year or throughout with updated player transfers and how well they have done during that league game.

What will be interesting to see is how far EA will take its subscription-based model should the publisher go through with its plans.

"How does a Madden game that exists in the cloud manifest on your mobile phone, one minute at a time?" This also includes selling additional content, which usually involves new gear, campaigns, levels, accessories and other in-game purchases. "How does that manifest on your 60-inch TV, an hour at a time". He argues that it has already changed the way people watch television, listen to music and even read books.
