Yeah very few successful companies have business models willing to allow for the necessary 3-5 years of development per installment in a series to both update technology and provide at least a breadth (if not also depth) of content with each release. EA is certainly not that patient over so many fiscal quarters and they seem to have become less so. The only two I can think of are Zenimax and CD Projekt RED (very different in many respects) - and I'd guess the relevant qualities they have in common are that both are privately held and have the money to reliably fund big projects.
