Bejeweled Wiki


Electronic Arts Inc. (abbreviated and mostly known as EA) is an American video game company headquartered in Redwood City, California. It is the second-largest gaming company in the Americas and Europe by revenue and market capitalization after Activision Blizzard and ahead of Take-Two Interactive, CD Projekt, and Ubisoft as of May 2020.

Founded and incorporated on May 27, 1982, by Apple employee Trip Hawkins, the company was a pioneer of the early home computer game industry and promoted the designers and programmers responsible for its games as "software artists". EA published numerous games and some productivity software for personal computers, all of which were developed by external individuals or groups until 1987's Skate or Die!. The company shifted toward internal game studios, often through acquisitions, such as Distinctive Software becoming EA Canada in 1991.

Electronic Arts is the current owner of the copyright for the Bejeweled series, and has been publishing Bejeweled titles since 2011, following the full acquisition of PopCap Games at $650 million. Following the studio's acquisition, EA shifted PopCap to become a studio dedicated to mobile and free-to-play games.
