Say goodbye to EA Access, and say hello to EA Play. If that name seems familiar it’s because it is. EA Play has been what EA has been calling their E3 live events for the past few years now. Those events will now be called EA Play Live (very distinctive). EA Play will now be the name of the subscription service that the developer/publisher offers. Origin Access will also be rebranded as EA Play and the services will be brought under the same banner, although they will still technically remain separate. Andy Chalk at PC Gamer has more.
A little more than a year ago Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf found himself three million dollars richer after winning the Fortnite World Championship. A year later, Bugha has found even more success. After signing with newly formed VaynerGaming, the young man has secured an additional six million dollars in sponsorship deals. The business of Bugha is a lucrative one. VaynerGaming also renegotiated his deal with his organization, Sentinels, as well as secured him an exclusive streaming contract with Twitch valued at seven figures. Ian Thomas at Front Office Sports has the full story.
