In a newly released financial document, EA revealed that it is working on a slate for an unreleased game scheduled for the end of 2023. It’s not surprising that game publishers are working on new games, but the document details include everything. We at TRG are excitedly discussing what they should do. New command & conker games and more.
EA says it is working on major IP, partner titles, remakes and sports titles. document..The partner’s title is probably Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2, and it’s been confirmed that the game is already in production, but early reports did. Scheduled for early 2023This document may be the first sign that the release date has shifted.
Earlier this week EA and FIFA Announce End of 30 Year Partnership, Both organizations say they will continue to make soccer games. Officially branded title FIFA. EA with the new EASports FC series. This may be an unpublished sports title listed in the financial statements. EA plans to release FIFA 23 again next year. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will release a competing sports game created in another studio in the same year.
Let’s start speculation
Now, let’s quickly admit that the details shared by EA are the slimmest of the slims, so what’s next is pure speculation. For example, “major IP” can mean a new game or a brand new major IP set within a major IP. I told the former because EA has shown that it wants to return to early success from new angles, such as Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, a reinterpretation of the virtual reality of World War II shooters. I’m devoted.
The two most likely candidates are the Medal of Honor and Titanfall. When EA acquired Titanfall and Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment in 2017, there was also a team of developers behind one of the series’ most acclaimed entries, the Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. I bought it. He is also the team that formed Infinity Ward and created Call of Duty. Basically, EA is one of the most talented first-person shooter game developers in the industry. Of course, in Titanfall and Titanfall 2, the team has created a similarly well-reviewed series, not a huge seller, but continues to develop an avid fan base.
When asked about Titanfall in the past Respawn said the series isn’t dead, Someday give hope to Titanfall 3. However, the studio is currently working on an unreleased first-person shooter and strategy game set in the Star Wars world, as well as a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Therefore, a new Medal of Honor or Titanfall game may have to wait.
It’s time for a new command & conker
EA wants to revive the Command & Concur series. One of the first games I’ve ever played was Dune 2, a strategy game created by Westwood Studios, a team that created Command & Conquer and eventually became EA Studios. The series gained momentum in the 90’s and early 2000’s, with Red Alert 2 and Command & Conquer: Generals being the real highlights.
The strategy game market bottomed out in the 2000s, and most major publishers except Blizzard abandoned this genre. And yet, Blizzard left the Warcraft game and focused on MMOs and StarCraft. On the other hand, great series like many recently released strategy games serve a hardcore fan base. Command & Concur scratched the itch of a casual player.
All expectations of Command & Conquer’s return to glory should have burned out, but last year EA rebuilt the original Command & Conquer and Red Alert. These remakes are more than just remasters. They love remakes of classic strategy games led by the Westwood Studios team (now working as an independent developer called Petroglyph Games). They were really some of the best remakes I’ve played and were very well received by the fans. This, coupled with the success of Microsoft’s Age of Empires IV, is probably enough to convince EA to develop an entirely new command and conker game.
And hey, if EA doesn’t make a new Command & Conker game, I simply demand that the remake it mentions is Command & Conker: Renegade.
