“Star Wars Battlefront” and five other games will be revealed by EA at E3 later in the year, it has been reported.
Spike TV’s Geoff Keighley said on Twitter a few days ago: “EA World Premiere at E3 coming live to Spike TV on June 9, 1 hour press conference with six new game reveals as part of our E3 All Access.”
According to Polygon.com, the lineup will include “Star Wars Battlefront,” “Dragon Age: Inquisition,” and others. “The Sims 4” and possibly the next “Mirror’s Edge” game might also be included in the lineup, the website added. GameSpot said that EA will likely also show a new “Need for Speed” game.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson said earlier this month that new information about Battlefront “and other new projects in development” will be unveiled at E3. Wilson told GameSpot that development for the game is coming along “very, very well,” and there’s “lots and lots of work to go.”
EA’s press conference at E3 is slated for June 9.
EA also teased another title that has yet to be announced. “If you don’t have a Battlefield in a year, you’ve got a hole there that you have to fill,” the publisher said, according to EuroGamer. “The way we’re filling that hole is essentially new titles along the lines of FIFA: World Cup, UFC, a golf game, The Sims and Dragon Age. I would say that fills about two-thirds of the hole and the rest of the hole we would assume is being filled by this new, unannounced game.”
The publisher added: “We’re highly conscious of the crowded slate in the back half of the year. What that means is it’s gotta do great and it’s got to do really well, particularly on the new generation. The box is going to have to be unique. I think you’ll see all of that at E3 when you get a chance to see the game.”
