It’s a problem to get a sport absolutely launched, however that’s not going to cease EA, who desires to place out 14 of them in Fiscal 12 months 2021. Throughout an earnings report, they talked some about objectives for the upcoming fiscal 12 months, which begins in April 2020, and the most important is the plan to publish 14 titles. Within the final fiscal 12 months, EA solely deliberate to publish eight, and of these, the ill-fated NBA Reside 20 was finally canceled. Whereas all 14 titles might not see launch in that timeframe, it’s nonetheless the aim.
Of those 14 titles, 10 shall be developed in-house. Two of them are going to be cell video games. Of the remaining eight, 4 are sports activities video games, with EA occurring to substantiate that one shall be Madden 2021 and one other could be FIFA 2021. The opposite two sports activities video games are nonetheless unknown, although EA did say they have been going to attempt to deliver again the NBA Reside sequence for 2021. Contemplating EA has launched an NHL sport yearly since 1991, an NHL 2021 doesn’t appear that unlikely as one of many thriller video games.
For the opposite 4 in-house titles, EA stated they’d “draw from the breadth of EA’s IP.” This might imply plenty of prospects. There are a couple of initiatives we already know are possible not coming in that timeframe; EA stated that new Battlefield and Dragon Age video games could be ready till the next fiscal 12 months. We do know that EA has each a remake of the unique Command & Conquer and VR first-person shooter Medal of Honor: Above and Past within the works, but it surely’s unclear if these are a part of these 4 video games. There’s nonetheless hope for that Mass Impact trilogy remaster.
The ultimate 4 titles are going to be video games EA is publishing which are created by different builders. Final 12 months they revealed Sea of Solitude, and the 12 months earlier than that that they had hits like A Manner Out and Fe. Whereas there’s no phrase on what these new video games shall be but, it’s all the time good to see EA serving to out a few of the indie builders.
Given the time intersects with the next-gen console releases, it’s anticipated that at the very least a few of these titles shall be PlayStation 5 video games.
