EA Sports NFT Games To Arrive
According to The Street‘s latest report, Electronic Arts Sports is a gaming company that is late to enter the world of rising NFT titles.

Most digital currencies including Bitcoin, (BTC) Ethereum, (ETH) Ripple (XRP) and Stella (XLM) have seen a dramatic fall in their prices throughout 2018 amid a ‘mass sell-off’.
Although this is the case, EA Sports could still make its NFT games popular since the agency already has around 140 million players and 16 million monthly subscriptions, as reported by Ledger Insights.
On the other hand, its smaller competitors are also planning to do the same thing since NFT-based titles are now proving their worth, which can be seen in the rising games such as “Axie Infinity.”
One of EA’s competitors exploring NFTs for the past few years is Ubisoft, which already published its own blockchain game called “Sorare.”
Would Rumored EA NFT Games Offer Earnings?
As of the moment, EA Sports still doesn’t confirm if their new titles would be play-to-earn NFT sports games. However, some critics explained that this is could happen because of the current trend of non-fungible token-based titles.
For example, “Axie Infinity” allows you to acquire characters or “axies” that could be sold depending on their rarity. Aside from this, the game also has the so-called SLP (Smooth Love Potion), which could be sold as well.
