EA Sports Announcing New Game in January

In a time where games are being shaved from the EA portfolio comes news that a new EA Sports game is on the horizon. As tweeted this evening by an EA Canada community manager a new title will be announced in January. So the speculation begins as to what that game will be.

My gut feeling on this is that it will be a WWE offering. The license between the WWE and THQ had its deadline for notice of renewal pass. Once that happened the WWE extended that deadline to December 31st. It is possible THQ informed WWE they did not intend to continue the license at which point EA could have jumped in and made an offer. The announcement coming in January certainly would make sense given the framing of the circumstances. WWE brings an established fan base and wouldn’t be seen as too much of a risk even in these difficult economic times.

The only other thing that comes to mind that would make a big splash would be the return of MVP Baseball. Currently there are no signs that 2K Sports has been able to get out of the third party license agreement, which would open up EA to making MLB games again. However recent financial news has shown why they would want to do just that.

This could also end up being another in the line of downloadable arcade games. Both 3 on 3 NHL Arcade and Madden Arcade are viewed as successes. It seems only a matter of time before an NBA Arcade comes along. As mentioned by wildthing202 is FIFA World Cup 10 but calling that a “new” game would be a stretch since it’s already known to be on the way. EA has released one every World Cup year since 1998.

What game could you imagine EA Sports announcing in January? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    Maybe a game like the FIFA World Cup but for Olympic hockey. Fits the time frame.

    I am hoping for a triumphant return of the SSX series to next gen consoles. SSX was one of the best games EA ever put out with its beautiful landscapes, death defying rendering of height and break neck speeds.

    I never understood why they didnt carry over that franchise to next gen.

    If they brought NCAA baseball to next gen that would be great. There is such a need for a great baseball game from EA and for them to get rid of NCAA basketball would be crazy because NCAA basketball 10 is the best college basketball game since coach K. They are finally getting basketball rite and starting to close the gap on NBA 2k basketball games. Plus NCAA football should be the best game every year. The problem is they add stupid features like season show down. Instead of using that time effort and money on stupid features they should focus on the presentation and commentary in their game. They have had the same announce team since the first xbox. This years game on the field plays almost just like NCAA 09 and when you play Madden 10 which is so much better it makes NCAA 10 not fun because there is such a difference.

    Having been a former 2K Sports Forum Moderator it was difficult to defend the 2K baseball series for both 2k8 and 2k9. I had to leave due to my own personal convictions and refusal to support that product, plus the fact that I couldnt say Madden was a decent game this year. I would be extremely happy to see the MVP series return and replace 2K baseball. 2K Baseball has been attrocious on the 360 as well as 2K Hockey.

    In shoes' field,Nike shoes have grown immensely popular and done hard designs to catch people's eyes.It has come in more and more different colors and paterns,because the designers put hard-working details to their “artwork” and always doing the best,perfect for this spring and coming summer.The shoes has many points on colorway,being worthy buying.In my opinion,nike shoes will lead the trends,and never slowing down.As we coule see,nike has bring the swoosh on areas.

    A question,why does MBT shoes and supra shoes could not compare to the NIKE?What is the important in the new century?More hard-working,depth,teamwork,of course,the Process of growth and maturity also be the reason.But the latter is not the main reason.As we all know,the “Tiger Woods event” is a shock,even may do harm to NIKE's outstanding achievement,however,NIKE choose to suppot Woods,as an industry leader,NIKE persist their own faith and brings themselves success.
