Electronic Arts reported a net loss of $308 million in the fiscal third quarter of 2014, a period of three months stretching from October 1, 2013 through the end of December. The company reported a net revenue of $808 million, which compares unfavorably to the $922 million reported during the same quarter last year. It is a 16.3 percent increase from last quarter's reported $695 million earnings, however.

EA reported that 50.7 percent ($410 million) of its earnings came from digital sales, calling out a 60 percent increase in FIFA Ultimate Team, Madden NFL Ultimate Team and NHL Ultimate Team sales on a non-GAAP basis (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). It reported a trailing twelve-month total revenue of $3.66 billion, and projects its revenue for fiscal 2014 (the year ending March 31) to be $3.52 billion, $1.07 billion of which is expected to come in the next quarter.
