In the tweet, Keighley stated that during its press conference at E3 on June 9, Redwood City, California-based EA will reveal a new lineup of titles. The press conference, which is to last one hour, will be broadcast live on Spike TV’s E3 All Access program. The conference will also be available through Spike's website, Twitch and EA’s site.
According to a press release from EA, the event will offer a look at a number of “new projects and intellectual properties currently in development.”
More details regarding “Star Wars: Battlefront” and "The Sims 4" also are likely to be discussed during the press conference.
EA, which is the publisher of franchises like “Mass Effect” and “Battlefield,” experienced impressive sales earlier this year with the March 11 launch of first-person shooter “Titanfall.”
During the Stifel Technology, Internet & Media Conference in San Francisco in February, EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen said he sees “Titanfall” as having long-term potential. “As you can imagine, this will be a franchise that’s around for a long, long time. I think people will be very excited,” he said.
Jorgensen said “Titanfall,” “Battlefield” and “Star Wars: Battlefront” are EA's “core franchises.” Though the titles are all first-person shooters, he felt they were all different from one another. “Battlefield” is a more realistic, military-themed title, “Titanfall” has a futuristic setting and “Star Wars: Battlefront” will focus heavily on the movie franchise of the same name.
“All three of those are different, all three of those can coexist in any one year, and we feel like they’re pillars for us going forward in an area where the consumer really wants to have that kind of excitement in a video game,” Jorgensen stated.
What other games will EA announce at E3? We'll have to wait until next month, where we'll be covering E3 from June 10-12.
