The day we stop making new IP is when we go onto life support.
Electronic Arts has revealed that they’re are working on six to eight new game franchises. Patrick Soderlund told MCV that they’re all about taking risks when it comes to surviving, which is why they’ve revive projects such as Mirrors Edge 2 and Star Wars Battlefront.
“We are working on a new Mirror’s Edge game, and although that’s not a new IP, it is a revival done in a new way,” he said. “We are developing Star Wars Battlefront, which to us is a new IP, even though it isn’t technically.
“We have six to eight completely new IPs in the works. The day we stop making new IP is when we go onto life support. We need to incubate new ideas and push creative boundaries.”
