EA has today announced that they will be launching a new EA eSports Division that will be headed up by Peter Moore, providing a competitive gaming division for fans to enjoy for EA games such as FIFA, Madden NFL, Battlefield and more.
EA’s Peter Moore is now moving into his new role as Executive Vice President and Chief Competition Officer for Electronic Arts, and will be leading the new EA Competitive Gaming Division (CGD) that will provide Competition, Community and Entertainment for gamers says EA.
EA explain more about the CGD :
For many of you, the passion for games is defined by competition – a relentless focus on being the best, and leaving your mark on the games you love. It fuels many of the amazing things we see from millions of you playing EA games each day. As this passion continues to grow, we’re committed to creating even more opportunities for you to connect and compete.
There is no one better in our industry to lead this new effort than Peter. He was an early pioneer in championing competitive gaming programs, such as the FIFA Interactive World Cup and the EA SPORTS Challenge Series, and Peter’s personal passions for the player experience, sports and competition, make him a tremendous leader for this new division. Peter’s team will partner with our development studios, marketers and publishing teams to bring this new platform to life.
The formation of the Competitive Gaming Division is a groundbreaking opportunity for Electronic Arts to celebrate your passion for play and competition. I’m excited to see what Peter and the team will share in the months ahead.
