With EA out, there's only one game publisher left on the NASDAQ-100

With EA out, there's only one game publisher left on the NASDAQ-100

December 17, 2012 | By Frank Cifaldi




Only one company focused primarily on video games remains on NASDAQ's coveted list of the 100 largest companies in the world.

Electronic Arts was pushed out as part of NASDAQ's annual reshuffling of the list to make room for newcomers like Western Digital and Liberty Global.

EA took a major hit this year, with shares hitting their lowest prices since 1999 partially due to its struggle to retain subscribers to its Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, a game rumored to have the most expensive development cost in video game history.

The only traditional game company to remain on the list is now Activision Blizzard, though several companies with ties to the industry -- including Microsoft, Google, Apple, Adobe and NVIDIA -- also remain.

The NASDAQ-100 is a prestigious list of the 100 largest non-financial companies listed on its stock exchange.
