  • Peter Moore Steps Down as EA COO to Lead New Competitive Gaming Division

    Peter Moore is stepping down as the COO of Electronic Arts in order to be the new "Chief Competition Officer" for EA's new push into eSports. EA is organizing a group that will focus solely on eSports. They're calling it the EA Competitive Gaming Division (CGD).

    Andrew Wilson made some public statements today concerning the CGD.
    "As the latest step in our journey to put our players first, this group will enable global eSports competitions in our biggest franchises including FIFA, Madden NFL, Battlefield and more," Wilson said, adding, "EA's CGD will seek to build a best-in-class program to centralize our efforts with new events, as well as the infrastructure to bring you the world's preeminent EA competitive experiences."

    Moore is set to step down as COO at the end of the current fiscal year. His new role will be Executive Vice-President and Chief Competition Officer. As of right now, EA has not yet publicly announced who will replace Moore at the COO position.

    Wilson said that he wants the CGD to foster an environment of competition and community within EA's game offerings. They hope that the CGD will create a number of official tournaments and live broadcasts. Peter Moore offered up his own thoughts on the matter in a Tweet made earlier today.
