Amazon rumoured to announce purchase of EA TODAY | The Sun

AMAZON is rumoured to have had an offer accepted to purchase EA, which could point to more gaming-based shows on Amazon Prime. 

According to GLHF sources, Amazon will announce its offer to purchase the major video games publisher later today.

EA is one of the largest publishers and developers in the video games industry, selling widely successful games such as the FIFA series.

Rumours have been spreading about the acquisition for weeks, as EA apparently looked for a parent company to make an offer.

Amazon, Disney, and Apple were all rumoured to be interested in the company.

However, it seems that the former is the first to make an offer.

The rise in popularity of video game based TV shows could point to the reason why Amazon is so interested in the company.

EA owns a number of popular video game properties such as Mass Effect, Dead Space, Dragon Age, and Apex Legends.

The vast worlds of these games would be the perfect location for a TV series.
