EA confirmed during a recent call with investors that they’re hard at work on a bevy of new titles for fiscal year 2021.
The publisher has ensured that two unannounced third-party games and at least one new sports title will release between April 2020 and March 2021. It’s safe to assume that the third-party games will be produced by one of EA’s many existing partners, but the first-party sports may or may not be a returning franchise.
EA has also promised remasters of fan-favorite franchises. They’re remaining tight-lipped as to which series would see such modern updates, but the previously-announced remaster of Command and Conquer has been confirmed to be among them.
This news of remasters is a stark contrast to COO Peter Moore’s 2017 interview with IGN wherein he claimed, “I don’t know where we find the time to do remakes. We’re a company that just likes to push forward.”
Moving past next year, EA has confirmed that internal studios such as DICE, Criterion, Maxis, BioWare, and Motive are all hard at work on new games for next-gen systems. We’re sure to get glimpses of some of these titles at E3 2020 and beyond.
