New IP's are in development by EA; will show when ready

EA has confirmed that it still has new IP's in development and will reveal them when the time is right.

Speaking in a recent interview with CVG, Patrick Söderlund said the publisher has "completely new" intellectual properties in construction at its development studios on top of those which it already announced at E3.

"If you look at our [E3] line-up, we showed Titanfall, a brand new IP from Respawn, Mirror's Edge, which is a beloved return for many people, and Star Wars: Battlefront, which I think is a match made in heaven.

"Those are the three main new things, coupled with a game in Battlefield 4, which I think is a really big update to what we had before and a big leap forward in gaming on console and PC.

"On top of that we have a new studio working on Need for Speed. You may say that it's the 18th or 19th version, but go play Rivals and talk to that team and you'll see a passion and dedication to new and fresh things that I haven't seen in a long time on Need for Speed.

"I feel really good about our line-up and feel like we have a lot of new games. Whether those are built on intellectual properties that we own and have been out there in the past or not... that's probably less relevant.

Söderlund then took time to say that new IP's are very important to EA and there are plenty on the way. 

"Is new IP important to EA? Absolutely. Are we working on a lot of new things? Yes we are. Are some of those new things the rebirth of old existing brands like Mirror's Edge? Yes. Are some of those things licensed properties like Star Wars? Yes.

"Do we have stuff in development that we haven't announced that are new IPs? Absolutely."

Söderlund says these new IP's will be announced in good time. We look forward to seeing them.

Having new IP's is all fine and dandy but if it's not a new IP with new ideas then i'm not interested
