EA boss John Riccitiello has expressed concerns over the financial conditions of one of the publishers ‘major European retail partners.’
Considering yesterday’s news, it doesn’t seem unlikely that was referring to GAME when saying the following.
“We are concerned with the financial condition of one of our major European retail partners, which could lead to both increased bad debt and lost sales,” he said.
He wasn’t the only one with concerns either, with Chief financial officer Eric Brown also adding, “we are focused on some isolated European retailer issues that have recently been announced. A negative outcome could adversely affect our Q4 results.”
GAME have yet to comment on the matter.
