Coming from its Q4 Fiscal Year results call, it was revealed by the Gematsu Twitter Account that multiple titles are scheduled to be released by EA for the rest of the year, with titles such as Burnout Paradise Remastered, Command & Conquer Remastered, FIFA21, and Madden21 among others.
It was also revealed that EA will be launching a number of Nintendo Switch titles this year, to the surprise and delight of many.
Via an interview with VentureBeat, EA CEO Andrew Wilson says the titles that they have planned “includes four new EA Sports titles — FIFA, Madden, NHL, and one more unannounced sports game — all of which deliver on the mix of creativity, authenticity, and quality that sets EA Sports apart. … Our FY21 plans also include four more games drawing on the breadth of our IP, from Command & Conquer Remastered to unannounced games for our console and PC players. We’ll have more games from indie developers launching this year through EA Partners, and two new mobile titles leveraging top IP that we’ll bring to players worldwide.”
The bigger news, however is having EA on the Nintendo Switch platform, something they’ve been very shy about. With their limited presence on the system, this could mark the start of a change and we may be seeing more titles to come, with Burnout Paradise Remastered as the first drop.
It’s not hard to see which titles would fit well into the Switch lineup. The Sims would be a good choice, along with some sports games like FIFA but what people would really want to see are some of the big ticket titles like the more recent Star Wars titles in Jedi Fallen Order, shooters like Battlefield, and maybe even some of the Need for Speed titles.
