Big boss John Riccitiello of EA has dropped news that they've got a "very exciting entry later in the year" for the FPS genre but aren't announcing yet.
It's all part of their "long term goal to take back" leadership in FPS. Crysis 2 and Bulletstorm will boost their market share. New IP or more Medal of Honor?
"The intention for us is to have strong FPS entries each year," said John Riccitiello. "I don't want to give away the thunder from our call but for quite a long time now I've been saying it's our long term goal to take back the first person shooter category leadership."
"We've made strong progress in calendar '10 over calendar '09," he declared.
"This year, with the tail-end of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 still doing well and Medal of Honor still doing well... with Crysis and Bulletstorm we're clearly going to make more progress towards 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."
EA still has Battlefield 3 on the go at DICE and is speculated to be landing sometime this year, however that was announced back in August so that isn't it. It could be a new instalment to the rebooted Medal of Honor already or a whole new IP altogether.
