EA’s Peter Moore Says Company Has ‘Embarrassment Of Riches’ In Upcoming Lineup
The company could see a very big 2016.
Despite what can only be described as a rocky couple of years for Electronic Arts, COO Pete Moore believes the firm’s best days are still to come. Speaking at the Credit Suisse Technology, Media and Telecom Broker Conference Moore talked about what he said was an “embarrassment of riches” when it came to the firms’s upcoming games. In particular, the exec said that once the new fiscal year kicks off in April, the company is going to be feeling pretty confident about the games it has on offer.
“Well it’s a little bit of an embarrassment of riches, particularly in FY17 which commences for us on April 1st,  in which we’ve got some of our core franchises: a new Battlefield coming up, a new Mass Effect title coming up. We actually kick off the year with Mirror’s Edge which we have pushed out of FY16 and into FY17 and we also have Mass Effect from our BioWare studio, Mass Effect: Andromeda,” he said at the event.
Moore has previously said his firm does not want to spend any amount of time working on remasters and when laying out what EA has up its sleeve in 2016 and beyond it appears Electronic Arts is sticking to that word. Moore also talked about the fact that a new Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare is coming out in the fourth quarter of FY 2015. It’s long been known another Titanfall is on the horizon as well, though there isn’t a timetable for that game’s release.
