Electronic Arts is yet again in the running for the title of “Worst Company in America” from the recently launched poll arranged by consumer affairs blog The Consumerist. EA was named “Worst Company in America” in 2012 and then again in 2013.
In the first round of this year’s poll, EA is up against Time Warner Cable. The only other game-related company featured in the poll is Xbox maker Microsoft. However, EA is the only company on the list whose businesses operations are focused exclusively on gaming.
Companies featured in the poll were based on reader nominations. The Consumerist did not say what behavior warranted EA’s nomination to the list, but there was significant controversy surrounding the release of Battlefield 4 in October over its widespread technical troubles.
Voting for this year’s Worst Company in America begins tomorrow, March 19. The winner will take home the “Golden Poo” trophy. We’ve reached out to EA regarding their nomination to the poll and will update this story with anything we hear back.
