EA chief operating officer Peter Moore has said that games that enter the EA Access subscription service will be “substantial” and that their duration will be “permanent”.
“The Vault will get its share of triple-A titles,” he told CVG. “We haven’t made any announcements to that extent about exactly when, where and how, but the Vault will be substantial.”
“I think one of the key things is that once a game goes into the Vault it stays there, it’s not going to be taken out, that’s a commitment we’ve made,” he added.
EA reserves the right to change and update the EA Access Services, and the EA Content offered through the EA Access Services without any liability to you. In particular, Vault Titles are subject to change and may be removed, and the online services for certain Vault Titles may be discontinued. In the event that EA changes the EA Access Services, including the removal of Vault Titles or discontinuation of online services for certain Vault Titles, we will provide thirty (30) days advance notice to you by posting a notice on http://www.ea.com/eaaccess.
Moore also said that there was no formula for when games would join the subscription service. “We have to make decisions along that way, so there’s no template, like 30 days after a game ships it goes into the Vault,” he said.
One game that will not be appearing on the service is Titanfall as it is specifically excluded, and there may further titles that never reach EA Access. “Check this page often for EA Access updates and any future exclusions” states the website.
