EA to Support Current Gen Through to 2017
Electronic Arts plans to release games on the current generation of consoles until at least 2017.
That's according to the company's CFO Blake Jorgensen (via Gamespot), who made the announcement earlier this week at the Stifel 2013 Technology Conference in New York.
While no further details were given, Jorgensen did talk about the company's exclusive Star Wars deal, and even teased that it may revive older franchises such as Battlefront.
"These aren't movie games, per se; these are stand-alone games," he said. "But obviously they would come out near the movies and be able to tailgate off of some of the buzz that will be created around the new Star Wars movies.
"The opportunity to do a new Battlefront, for example, which is one of the very popular Star Wars games, or some of the other traditional games that were made, is very exciting."
We heard reports earlier last year that Battlefront III was still in development despite previously being canned, but nothing's materialised as yet.
