EA Will Announce New “Exciting” FPS Later This Year

by Ernice Gilbert on February 2nd, 2011, under EA, Hot, News

Is it something from Insomniac Games, or a monster new entry from former Infinity Ward bosses and creators of Modern Warfare, Jason West and Vince Zampella’s new studio, Respawn Entertainment?

We don’t know for sure, but according to EA CEO John Riccitiello, the publisher will announce a “very exciting” FPS title it has on its books “later” this year.

Riccitiello made mention of the new game in EA’s Q3 financial call, while answering a question related to Medal of Honor.

“I’ve been saying that it’s our long-term goal to take back the first-person shooter category leadership. We made strong progress in calendar ’10 over calendar ’09,” he said.

“This year, with the trail end of Battlefield Bad Company 2 still doing well, Medal of Honor doing well, Crysis [2] and Bulletstorm, we’re clearly going to make more progress on our goal, and that’s before we get to what I think is going to be a very exciting entry later in the year that we’re not yet announcing.”

No hints were dropped, though, but it could also be the latest Battlefield: Bad Company game, the third installment.

We’ll know soon enough.

    Yeah, maybe that. But it could also be a new game from Respawn or even Insomniac.
