Under den første finale af FUT Championship Series i Paris fik Gamereactor chancen for at tale med EA's Peter Moore, og Moore delte sine tanker om eSports generelt:

"I think it's been one of the more exciting developments in the industry in the 18 years that I have been involved in video games. Obviously powered by our need to compete which we always had in games and in particular sport games where, you and I on the couch, playing against each other and then in more recent years online has just exploded, the ability for us to play with anyone, anytime, anywhere. And from that it's been a huge opportunity for Electronic Arts to apply our franchises such as FIFA to competitive gaming. We still got lots of work to do, but I think It's going to be a real growth factor in video games over the next five years."

I forhold til branchens potentiale, så er han ganske positivt stemt:

"I actually went a year, last November, to San Jose which is not too far from EA's headquarters, on a weekend tournament, the Intel Extreme Masters, and stood in a arena where generally the San Jose sharks play NHL hockey and saw 12,000 screaming fans watching the best players of League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike : GO, and watching what seems to me to be, the atmosphere of a traditional sports event," he said. "And right there and then, even if I couldn't really understand the action on the screen for MOBAS, I've started to learn that, I could see the electricity in the audience. You could look at the fans, you could feel the tension building, just like in traditional sports. And it was at that moment, about a year and a half ago that I really understood what the opportunity was for our industry."
