Andrew Wilson, CEO of Electronic Arts, has revealed that the publishing behemoth has high hopes for Wild Hearts, and having seen the game in action himself, has labelled Omega Force‘s title as ‘incredible.’
Speaking during EA’s latest earnings call overnight, Wilson noted how the monster hunting genre is relatively new and ripe for innovation, with Wild Hearts to implement a number of elements that the community has requested.
It started with what felt like a pretty small idea for us internally, and every time we saw the product we were wowed and mesmerised by what they were doing.
The monster hunter genre is a relatively new genre. It exploded. It is ripe for innovation and creativity and expansion, and what we see the team doing is all of the things the community is asking for in the genre.
And the response so far has been really, really strong. And so, I don’t want to get out over my skis on this one, but I would tell you, I saw it and I think it’s incredible, the community saw it and they think it’s incredible.
Wild Hearts is pencilled in for release on February 17, 2023 for PS5, PC and Xbox Series X/S.
