Today, during Electronic Arts’ quarterly financial conference call For analysts and investors, CEO Andrew Wilson talked about upcoming games.
Specifically, we learn that in Q4 of the fiscal year 2023 (between January and March 2023) the publisher plans to launch four games that have not been announced.
The first is a major IP, the second is a title from a partner developer, the third is a remake, and the third is a sports title.
Responding to a direct question during the conference call, Wilson elaborated more on the “Major IP.”
Wilson explained that the game is not being launched during the holiday season first of all, because it is important to release the highest quality games possible, so EA is committed to quality and giving the development team all the time they need to build a great game. for the global audience.
On top of that, things are changing in the industry and 71% of EA’s recent revenue came from live services. Due to that, traditional launch services that have been very important for the longest time are not relevant anymore.
At the moment, no information was provided on the nature of this IP, so it’ll be interesting to see what it is when Electronic Arts reveals it down the line.
At the moment, we don’t know if the remake is Dead Space, but that is a possibility since its release has been slated for “early 2023.”
During the call, Wilson also mentioned Super Mega Baseball, but it’s not clear whether the sports game is mentioned here or not.
