We’re getting ever closer to the next generation of consoles. We’re hearing lots of whispers and murmurs about what the next Xbox and PS5 will be about. A lot of fans are ready, but they aren’t the only ones. Publisher EA is more than ready, and apparently they’ve been working on projects for the upcoming systems for a good while.

In their Q1 2020 financial report, EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen talked about the next generation. He says that the company is in the process of building games for the upcoming generation and have been for a good while. He says a lot in the industry are doing the same right now, and they’re excited for what it’ll bring.

“We’re working hard on moving, building games for next year on Gen 5,” said Jorgensen. “I think it’s obvious. I think everybody in the industry is doing that. As has happened in the past, not all games come out on Gen 5 immediately. And obviously, with games like Madden, you’d probably bring the Gen 5 game out when the Gen 5 console ships, not when Madden itself ships, but we’ll be ready on Gen 5. We’re very excited about it and we’ve been working on it for some time.”

It’s not a huge surprise, especially from a company the size of EA. Most likely the beginning of the next gen will echo this one with most major games being cross-gen, so there’s probably a lot of bled over in development at this point. We shouldn’t have to wait too much longer before we see some peeks of the new systems.
