In a recent interview with Forbes, EA COO Peter Moore discussed diversity in gaming. Moore noted that gaming protagonists are more than just “white males”. Stating..

“We all need to step back sometimes and think about the environments we create for our people, the opportunities we create for people internally, and equally importantly how you bring new blood into the company. It can’t all be white males. As a result, I think that hiring managers at EA over the last couple of years have had a sharper focus on diversity. I know that my teams around the world have.”

Moore also noted that many women have high-level positions within EA such as EA Mobile Head Samantha Ryan and Executive Producer of The Sims 4 Rachel Franklin. Saying..

“We’ve gone from the personification of what we believe women should look like in a video game, to actually involving women in making video games, to today where at Electronic Arts we have some of our most powerful franchises overseen by women who manage hundreds of men.”
