According to its latest quarterly earnings report, Electronic Arts (EA) has released four new games planned for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 (Q4 FY22). That means all four games will be available in early 2023. These games include “main IP”, partner games, remakes and sports games. The video game publisher also revealed that F1 22, FIFA, Madden NFL, Need For Speed and the NHL will be available this year. The news comes as EA announced it will be parting ways with world football governing body FIFA, ending their nearly three-year partnership to make FIFA games.
IGN was one of the first to report that EA gave its investors a sneak peek at their thoughts on 2023. In the publisher’s quarterly earnings report, it was revealed that EA plans to launch four games in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, running from January 1, 2023 to March 31, 2023. Additionally, IGN cites a footnote stating that all four games have not been publicly disclosed.
The report rules out a remake of Dead Space, which was announced last year. For “major IP,” EA may be referring to the next Dragon Age or Mass Effect game, since there hasn’t been any official announcement. The IGN report also mentions that a “new studio” in the Seattle area is working on an “unannounced open-world action-adventure game,” which fits the description of an “unannounced major IP.”
For the rest of the game, the sports game is probably EA Sports College Football. The fourth game has no solid information that fits EA’s “Partner Title” description.
What is currently known is that EA will launch F1 22 in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, FIFA 23 and Madden NFL 23 in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, and the next Need for Speed and NHL 23 in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, And launch a PGA Tour revival in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, along with four unannounced titles.
On Tuesday, EA also announced that its partnership with FIFA has ended, and FIFA 23 will be EA Sports’ last FIFA-branded video game. Starting next year, the football game will be called EA Sports FC.
