Blake Jorgensen, CFO for Electronic Arts, recently shed more light on some of the publisher’s upcoming games, including Star Wars Battlefront II, Bioware’s next original property, and more.
Speaking during a recent Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, Jorgensen reiterated that the sequel to 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront would be “dramatically larger” than the first and include “a lot of new characters” straight out of the upcoming films. This is not the first time the publisher has discussed the expanded scope of the Battlefront sequel, but it is good to hear EA is still on track with that promise.
As for Bioware’s upcoming mystery project, Jorgensen hinted that the title will be “more sci-fi related.”
“When you think about this game,” Jorgensen said, “you should be thinking about the great RPG character development and storyline progression that BioWare is known for, but in a world of greater action and greater adventure, which is growing to be one of the larger categories in games,”
There was discussion about several other mysterious projects coming from EA, but information is still scarce. Jorgensen did tease that the upcoming action game by Assassin’s Creed producer Jade Raymond is intended to become a new series, and Visceral’s Star Wars action title is set to be “exploration-based.”
Unfortunately, not one of the games mentioned above currently have a release date, but Star Wars Battlefront II is expected to launch sometime in fall 2017.
