Last night's EA earnings call saw the reveal that PC revenue had overtaken PS3 revenue, but it's not all bad news for the PlayStation Nation. Six games were announced to be in the pipeline for release by March 2013, but as one questioner noted, only three have been revealed so far.
The line of questioning began when an audience member (Cowen and Company analyst Douglas Creutz) posed the following question:
"It looks to me like you have 3 consoles/PC titles that you haven't yet announced what they are for the year. And is that correct? And also, is it correct that those are all scheduled for the March quarter?"
Interim CFO Kenneth Barker confirmed that his description was accurate, saying, "there are six titles scheduled for Q4, three of which we've announced and are provided in our schedules." The three known games are Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, and SimCity, which leaves three unannounced titles that are scheduled to come out early next year.
So, what are these mystery games? We don't know, but CEO John Riccitiello intends to tell us very soon. "gamescom is when we do most of the rest of the unveiling," Barker replied. "So we choose the major consumer shows as opposed to our quarterly financial results to announce titles."
In summation, EA will very likely reveal three new games, all scheduled for release around March 2013, at gamescom. The Cologne-based consumer show begins on August 15, and PSU will be there to bring you the latest coverage of all things PlayStation.
Until then, speculation abounds, so tell us what you think EA will announce in the comments below. Is it finally time to see Insomniac's long-awaited OverStrike?
