EA wants to publish 14 games in the next financial year

Publishing giant Electronic Arts has said it plans to release 14 new titles in the upcoming fiscal year.

Speaking to investors – as reported by Seeking Alpha – CFO Blake Jorgensen said that the company intends to release four new sports titles including new launches for the FIFA and Madden IP, in addition to four other triple-A titles and the same number of indie games, likely via its EA Originals publishing label between April 2020 and March 2021. 

That's on top of two new mobile releases which are set for a soft launch.

"Looking forward to fiscal 2021, our goal is to continue to grow net bookings and underlying profitability, even as we invest in new platforms," Jorgensen said.

"We anticipate live services to be the primary growth driver, followed by the launch of new content across our broad range of genres. We're launching four sports titles including new games in our blockbuster FIFA and Madden franchises; four other titles that draw from the breadth of our IP and we'll also publish four titles globally from smaller developers."
