Electronic Arts Inc. gave a forecast for revenue and earnings in the current quarter that missed analysts’ estimates, suggesting that even the ongoing success of Apex Legends isn’t enough to offset a new Battlefield flop. 

The game publisher, also known for sports franchises like Madden NFL and FIFA, predicted fourth-quarter adjusted revenue of $1.76 billion, missing the average analyst projection of $1.82 billion. Earnings per share excluding some costs will be $1.38, compared with the average analyst estimate of $1.49.
