EA took to Twitter to share the exciting collaboration between the two companies. The acquisition will help to strengthen EA’s sports label, as they have recently announced a new PGA game, as well as a college football title. Metalhead Software is not the only developer EA have acquired, as they have taken on Codemasters also, the studio behind the F1 racing series.
Weber continued to say ‘EA Sports continues to expand, and we’re deeply excited to create more unique and interactive experiences that blur the lines between sports and entertainment.’
