EA to release 14 titles by the end of this financial year

Publisher Electronic Arts says it will release 14 games before the end of the 2020/21 financial year.

As reported by Kotaku, the American publisher claimed it has "14 new titles to play this fiscal year." These include a variety of titles such as remakes and sports games. Some of which have already been announced, FIFA 21, Madden 21 and NHL 21 as well as "one more unannounced sports title."

"All of which deliver on the mix of creativity, authenticity and quality that sets EA Sports apart. EA Sports will also lead for us on the next-generation consoles this year, and we're excited to share more about the breakthroughs in those experiences soon," said EA CEO Andrew Wilson.

However, it is almost certain that the unannounced sport's title will not be an NBA game.

"With respect to NBA Live, nothing more to announce at this time other than I would also tell you we have a great relationship with the NBA. We've been partners with them for a very long time," said Wilson.

"I've personally spent time with the NBA at the most senior levels talking about innovative new ways to deliver new interactive content to NBA fans that maybe aren't engaging in games today. And we'll have more to share on that in the coming months."

Furthermore, a Command and Conquer Remaster will be released as will several games that are yet to be announced.

"Our FY 2021 plans also include four more games drawing on the breadth of our IP from Command & Conquer Remastered to unannounced games for console and PC. We'll have more games from indie developers launching this year through EA partners and two new mobile titles leveraging top IP that will bring to players worldwide," said EA.

As for what the unannounced titles could be, a strong possibility would be the Mass Effect trilogy remastered. Fans have asked for it for years, especially after the lacklustre response to Mass Effect: Andromeda. In March, Electronic Arts claimed it was developing a major title for one of its "most prestigious franchises."

Burnout Paradise Remastered for Nintendo Switch and Medal of Honor VR have also been announced. Earlier this month, the publishing giant announced that EA Play would be a digital event this year.
