EA is likely to end its two-year long trend of launching games exclusively on Amazon India. Zupitex, a Delhi-based distributor, is preparing to supply EA titles for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch to offline retail stores across India.
As reported, Zupitex will distribute existing and upcoming titles including Battlefield 1, FIFA 18, Need for Speed Payback, and Star Wars Battlefront 2 in India. The “Ronaldo Edition” of FIFA 18 will, however, sell exclusively on Amazon India. But, the games sold offline will be priced ₹300 higher i.e. at ₹4,299 compared to Amazon India’s ₹3,999 price tag which may force retailers to import stocks of games instead of buying via Zupitex.
