Following rumours that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is up for sale, EA's CFO Blake Jorgensen has opened up about the company's strategy when it comes to acquiring other firms.

Speaking during this week's earnings briefing, he said: "It is very rare that we don't get a chance to look at anything that is up for sale.

"You can imagine ... people call us and say we're thinking about selling the business or we're thinking about selling ourselves.

"We are a place that a lot of people want to come as a long-term home if they decide to sell the business. We get to look at almost everything."

Jorgensen insisted he couldn't "comment on any specific acquisition" but he did point out EA's past pattern of investing in talent they "have long term relationships with".

They added: "As you've seen in the past, where we've done the best is where we have long-term relationships with people and we're really trying to buy great talent versus games.

"I think Respawn is a classic example of that. We were able to bring them into the fold and give them incredible support and it was all driven by the fact that they have incredible talent.

"It wasn't about Titanfall - no offence to Titanfall. It's an amazing game and maybe you'll see Titanfall some time down the road. But it was really about the team."
