The Game Times: EA’s New CEO, FIFA 14 Soundtrack, and Grand Theft Auto V Already Parodied
A week’s worth of video game news and trailers, all in convenient digest form.
Ex-FIFA Executive Named EA CEO
Yesterday, Electronic Arts confirmed the appointment of Andrew Wilson to the lofty position of company CEO.
Wilson has been with EA for years, most recently overseeing EA SPORTS and the publisher’s online distribution platform, Origin, after previously serving as Executive Producer of the FIFA franchise.
Dust has yet to settle around the power transfer, and neither Wilson nor EA’s board of directors have commented on the immediate implications of the change. Given the rapid encroachment of the next console generation, however, we can expect one or two surprises from EA in the coming months.
- Achievement lists for F1 2013 and WWE 2K14 have hit the web.
- NCAA Football 14 just got a bit more customizable thanks to this $1 Uniform Pack.
- Remember FIFA Online? What about FIFA Online 2? Well, their maker is being bought out.
- Football Manager 2014 coming October 31—oh, and it loves Vitas.

FIFA 14‘s Soundtrack Is Even More Diverse Than Its Roster
Through its ever expanding line of feature and teaser trailers, FIFA 14 has proven that it’s not enough to be an immersive, realistic sports gaming experience–you’ve got to have good music too. And the game’s official soundtrack doesn’t disappoint, featuring everything from Nine Inch Nails to The Naked And Famous to the recent hit from The Royal Concept, “On Our Way.” From electronic and pop to classic rock, FIFA 14′s 37-artist lineup, hailing from 13 countries, has memorable football anthems in spades.
