Electronic Arts is continuing to make in-roads into the field of mobile gaming, with today's announcement of further cellphone content development with their partner of three years, UK-based Digital Bridges. Brian Greasley, CEO of Digital Bridges commented of being partnered with the world's largest game software company: "This agreement is not only a vote of confidence in Digital Bridges, it is also a fantastic endorsement of mobile gaming." With two mobile titles (FIFA Football 2004 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004) accumulating more than one million downloads in Europe alone, EA and Digital Bridges intend to bring three more high-profile games to mobile handsets in 2004; FIFA Football 2005, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 and Need for Speed Underground 2, with a mobile version of The Sims planned for 2005.
