EA to Invest $80 Million in Next-Gen Games

Posted on May 8, 2012 AT 07:14am

EA has announced its preparations for the next-generation of games by dedicating $80 million over fiscal year 2013.

The publishing giant will spend $80 million in its next run of titles throughout 2012 and into early 2013, this must mean that the gears are slowly starting to turn as it ramps up development. $80 million seems to be more along the lines of preparation money, rather than footing the bill for a new game.

The next-gen tide is washing in slowly, we expect it to be here by the end of next year. The number of rumors, apparent leaks, job listings and investment going into the next-gen seems to suggest that it’s getting pretty close to being a reality. Don’t expect to see it at this year’s E3 though.

How can games improve in the next-generation? Share your thoughts below.
