Michael Pachter, Wedbush analyst told that “I think investors thought that shelter-in-place would trigger even more growth than they guided to,”. “Expectations were too high, and the company is probably being a wee bit conservative.”

Electronic Arts, same as their rivals Activision Blizzard and Take-Two Interactive Software, has a record of guiding conservatively at the start of the year. The revenue collected from live services in the first quarter was $832 million, up about 17% from a year ago.
