EA Confirms “Fan Favorite” Remasters Are Coming In 2020
It looks like fans of older games may have a lot to look forward to from EA next year. The company recently released its prepared remarks for investors following the release of its quarterly financial results, some of which held some hints at what fans can expect from 2020 and beyond. Some of these upcoming offerings will be new IPs, while others will apparently be “fan favorite” remasters.
EA’s Blake Jorgensen spoke at length about what can be expected from the company next year, revealing that the plan is to “add at least one more sports title to our annual slate” and that it has “two new unannounced EA Partners titles coming from third-party developers.” Jorgensen also revealed that the plan is to “deliver some exciting remasters of fan favorites, including the Command and Conquer game we’ve already disclosed.”
EA has for the most part been hesitant to delve into remaster territory, which makes Jorgensen’s remarks that more exciting to hear. That said, what the remarks are actually referring to could mean anything. One massive contender is the Mass Effect series. Now that Bioware is flying the EA banner, EA could stand to make a lot of money by remastering the original Mass Effect for the current generation. Other options – such as Dead Space – also exist, though my money is on the space-faring RPG that launched Bioware into stardom. Whatever the plan may be, DFTG will keep an eye on things and report on things once we hear more.
