Between six to eight franchises, EA works on.
Star Wars-inspired line, yup. Shameless.
Patrick Soderlund, speaking with MCV, said the gigantic publisher and developer takes risks out of necessity, if they’re to survive.
“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. 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.”
Do you agree with Soderlund’s words? Are new IP’s important to you? Let us know in the comments below!
