EA Working On Six To Eight New Franchises

EA_E3_2012According to the company’s head of games EA are working on between six to eight new franchises.

Patrick Soderlund told MCV that the publishers views taking risks as a necessity if it’s to survive, so what about the like’s of Mirrors Edge and Star Wars Battlefront.

“We are working on a new Mirror’s Edge game, and although that’s not a new IP, it is a revival done in a new way,” he said. “We are developing Star Wars Battlefront, which to us is a new IP, even though it isn’t technically.

“We have six to eight completely new IPs in the works. The day we stop making new IP is when we go onto life support. We need to incubate new ideas and push creative boundaries.”

EA announced Mirrors Edge 2 and the next installment in the Battlefront series at E3 this year, but a release date is yet to be announced.
