Electronic Arts has announced their preliminary financial results for the third fiscal quarter that ended on 31st December 2018 and with it came a statement from the COO and CFO.
Blake Jorgensen, COO and CFO of Electronic Arts said, ” FIFA stands out as a robust franchise through a tumultuous year in the video game industry. Elsewhere in the business, we’re making adjustments to improve execution and we’re refocusing R&D. Looking forward, we’re delighted to launch Anthem, our new IP, to grow Apex Legends and related Titanfall experiences, to deliver new Plants vs. Zombies and Need for Speed titles, and to add Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to our sports titles in the fall.”
The biggest relief from this statement is that Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is on track for a Fall 2019 release as previously known. After the announcement and launch of Apex Legends, some were skeptical about their Star Wars title but thankfully it seems to be coming along well.
Other than that, fans of the Need for Speed series will be happy to know that EA has not forgotten one of their most well-known IP. They plan on delivering a new Need for Speed title soon but whether or not it will appease the long time fans will be a big question.
They’re also working on a new Plants vs Zombies
While FIFA is their biggest game, I’m glad to see that they’re not forgetting the Titanfall and Plants vs Zombie series. Both of those series have had games that are extremely fun to play and I’m to be getting more.
