EA is planning to release a 'second wave' of new IP's next generation console, according to exec Frank Gibeau.
"We've now got half a dozen [original IPs] in development," Gibeau told CVG. "We've announced a couple of them, Mirror's Edge and Battlefront, but we've also added some as well. The last time I spoke about this we hadn't done the Star Wars deal, so there are those games too."
He added: "We're going to try and announce the new projects in the next couple of years - so in years two to three in the next-gen cycle, the plan is each year you'll see one to two new IP from us coming out.
"This year we have new projects too - UFC is new to EA and of course there's Titanfall."
So why are no new franchises going to be making a debut at launch?
"We're not [building new franchises] on the first day of release, we like to build a bit of the base," he said. "We have a broader portfolio, we've got a sports business, we've got Need For Speed, so we have more to bring over in terms of existing and healthy and growing franchises, and so we want to add a little bit more there.
"But, if you look at a game like Dragon Age Inquisition, it's a sequel yeah but we're treating it as a new IP with a new approach. We're reinventing it."
Would you consider Battlefront, UFC and Mirror's Edge as new IP's? Do you look forward to seeing what else EA has up its sleeves?
