EA game releases
In a conference call with investors, Electronic Art’s CEO John Riccitiello laid out the list of releases for the next financial year. On the list is rebooted Medal of Honor game which was announced late last year. Joining the ranks are the usual suspects—Need for Speed, FIFA and Madden. Making its debut under EA Sports label is martial arts fighting game called MMA. EA also plans to release sequels to Dead Space and Crysis, along with “many other” games in twelve months between March this year to April 2011.
The most interesting bit is when Riccitiello said that they are also expecting release of a major MMO, without giving any names. The most likely candidate is Star Wars: The Old Republic; however EA apparently does not want to comment on this further.
