During EA Games’ quarterly earnings calls, the company revealed that a number of its franchises will be making a return this year including Need for Speed and Plants vs. Zombies.
Hot on the heels of the launch of Apex Legends, EA Games held their quarterly call to investors to reveal their financials over the past three months as well as what’s in store in the not so distant future. Interestingly despite being told that Titanfall 3 isn’t happening, EA’s Andrew Wilson revealed that there is indeed a Titanfall title in the works.
“The launch yesterday was EA’s biggest reveal ever by peak concurrent viewers, and it quickly became the number one game on Twitch,” confirmed Wilson. The Respawn team has a strong plan for Apex Legends that will engage fans for a long time to come. As the live service evolves, Respawn also plans to launch a premium game this year that is a new twist on the Titanfall universe. More to come on that in the months ahead.”
Wilson later continued “And well, I don’t have more to share on the particulars of what would come in for Titanfall. What I would say is Respawn are a tremendously creative team, they always anticipated that Apex Legends would be a spectacular game in the Battle Royale genre and that they would use that as a ramp point to continue to innovate and deliver a truly creative take on what Titanfall is in a premium context later on the EA.”
If that wasn’t all, we were also given some more insight as to when we’ll be seeing another Need for Speed title, not that we need another after the last couple of games, but alas, there looks to be one on the way. Adding to this, another Plants vs. Zombies shooter is on the way too. Most likely Garden Warfare 3.
“We’ll have a new game for our Need for Speed fans, and a new title in our PvZ shooter franchise on console and PC,” said Wilson. Blake Jorgensen also backed this up saying “We will launch Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new Plants vs. Zombies shooter and a new Need for Speed.”
Details on what these two titles will be exactly are still being kept under wraps, though we know they will be released during EA’s FY 2020 which begins April 1, 2019 through to March 31, 2020. Chances are, we’ll see more info about these titles at E3 2019.
