There are a few video games that you can count on being released every single year, and probably top of that list are EA Sports' behemoths Madden and Federation Internationale de Football Association.
But the days of picking up your shiny new copy of "Madden NFL 18" or "FIFA 18" soon could be over.
For years the video game industry has handled sports franchises in a routine fashion. Wilson compared the new subscription model like a "365-day, live service". It saves on cost as publishers wouldn't have to make discs, saving on production cost.
Even with the shift to digital though, the video-game industry still relies on splashy new holiday releases to drum up excitement - and gifts from grandma - for their biggest titles.
But regardless of the format of the game, digitally delivered updates to games are becoming more and more common.
If these games simple moved to one release every three years, with yearly updates in between, it would allow developers time to really overhaul the game from the ground up and change the experience through new game engines, modes and truly overhaul the graphics in a way they haven't been able to in the past.
"NASCAR '15", for example", is the most recent release in Eutechnyx's "NASCAR The Game" series, yet it now features rosters identical to what you'll find on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
EA Sports has a particular way of doing things, and sticking to an annual release schedule for their games lineup is a big one. Perhaps declining game sales make it hard to reconcile huge production costs.
Speaking to Bloomberg, Wilson lightly theorized how that change might manifest within EA's own annual titles like Madden NFL or Federation Internationale de Football Association in the near future. Or maybe it's a way for gaming companies to hop on society's favoring of subscription-based, streaming content. Wilson went on in his interview to say that, "The greatest disruptor to the consumption of entertainment media in the last five years has been the combination of streaming plus subscription". "It's changed the way I read books".
