EA promises to bring the house down at E3 2015
EA promises big things for E3 2015, stating that they will bring the house down, and given that they will be showing Need for Speed, Star Wars Battlefront, Mass Effect, the newly announced Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, the new Plants vs Zombies game, and at least one more Star Wars title, I would have to agree that they could definitely achieve that.
Industry insider Shinobi602, who has been pretty accurate with everything he shared throughout the year, stated that EA has a lot more to announce at E3 2015. During a recent discussion over at NeoGAF, Shinobi stated that we should “look for 3 unannounced EA games, one of which is a new IP.”
Criterion’s new game was teased last year as a new IP focusing on extreme racing. Visceral has been teasing their upcoming Star Wars game, which is the project that Amy Hennig is associated with, so a reveal at E3 2015 is likely to happen. Bioware’s new IP has been teased for some time now so we might actually get a teaser of what that might be.
We will bring you any new information on Mass Effect, EA and E3 2015 as soon as it becomes available.
