Today, during Electronic Arts’ quarterly conference call for investors and analysts, the publisher’s top executives hinted that EA Access might come to other platforms.

The first to drop the hint was Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson during his prepared remarks:

“Our subscription services like EA Access and Origin Access are bringing more players from across our network to join in. Our subscription player base continues to grow, and you should expect us to continue driving this model to more platforms going forward.”

The same concept was echoed by Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen, who mentioned that we’ll “most likely” see the service on other platforms, on top of additional content to be added to the subscriptions, on top of some “exciting things to come.”

Jorgensen also added that it’s a way for more consumers to enjoy more games at a “very reasonable price.”

At the moment, the service is on Xbox One with EA Access and PC with Origin Access. No further hints were given on which platforms could be next.

Earlier in the call, Wilson also defended the Decision to close Visceral Games, mentioning that the company is looking to reuse some of the content the studio created.
