EA hints at new FPS title announcement

Written by David Stellmack

Wants to take back FPS industry leadership
Once again, Electronic Arts has made it known that they want to get the leadership role back in the FPS arena, and a “very exciting” unannounced title is going to help with that. While we know that DICE is working on Battlefield 3 for release later this year, this isn’t apparently what John Riccitiello, CEO of EA, was talking about when he recently made this comment.

EA has made some progress over the past year where it found success with Battlefield Bad Company 2 and the Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam Add-on Pack. It also had some success with the Medal of Honor reboot, but success with that title was not as great as it hoped.

Besides Battlefield 3 (which is expected later this year), EA also has Crisys 2 and Bulletstorm on tap for release this year. We suspect, however, that EA’s CEO was referring to a new title in development at Respawn under the guidance of Jason West and Vince Zampella, formerly of Infinity Ward. While we know that the new title from Respawn will not arrive this year, it is possible that an announcement could be coming at E3 this year and we believe this is the title that Riccitiello was talking about.

I am not sure they will be able to.
Its not like Vince and Zampela have a magic stick and each game they make will sell 1 billion.

In order for call of duty to reach those numbers years have passed from the original game!

ahaha yeah right , Crysis 2 nor Bulletstorm , neither Respawn's games , aren't EA's property , so these titles don't count at all.

EA has failed at keeping up the RTS world alive (C&C 4, etc) and will fail to do so with FPSs too.
