New games added to EA access are ‘not going to be taken out,’ says Peter Moore

As Electronic Arts’ subscription service EA Access expands its library, the titles added will remain permanently, chief operating officer Peter Moore informed CVG.

“New game additions will be determined by franchise and timing,” Moore told CVG. “We have to make decisions along that way, so there’s no template, like 30 days after a game ships it goes into the Vault.

“I think one of the key things is that once a game goes into the Vault it stays there, it’s not going to be taken out, that’s a commitment we’ve made.”

According to Moore, the EA Access library will also “get its share of triple-A titles,” and “will be substantial.” The subscription service, exclusive to Xbox One and currently in beta, currently contains Battlefield 4, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, and Peggle 2. Subscriptions go for $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. Once the program launches in full later this year, however, new titles added will, unlike PlayStation’s Instant Game Collection, permanently available. Future titles will include Madden NFL 15 and Dragon Age: Inquisition, which subscribers will also gain access to five days before launch.

EA revealed the Access program just last week. Earlier this week, an EA spokesperson confirmed to Polygon that it would not require an Xbox Live Gold membership to use.
