PC and browser made up a fifth of EA net revenue for last quarter

20.5 per cent of publishing giant Electronic Arts' net revenue for the last financial quarter came from PC and browser.

That's according to the company's SEC 10-Q filing for the three months ending June 30th, in which the Redwood-based publisher reported $249m from these platforms, 20.5 per cent of its $1.209bn total net revenue for the quarter.

PC and browser's slice of the revenue pie has grown year-on-year, too. For the same period 12 months prior, these sectors brought in $197m of a total of $1.137bn, 17.3 per cent of EA's total net revenue.

In total, digital spending made up the overwhelming majority of net revenue for the last financial quarter. Full game downloads, live services and mobile brought in a combined $1.049bn, with the remaining $160m coming from physical games.

The digital-physical revenue split is actually pretty consistent year-on-year, with 84 per cent of cash from the three months ending June 30th 2018 coming from the digital side of things.
