E3 2017 Predictions: EA

Sports Titles: If there’s one thing EA has a lot of, it’s sports games. Expect to see games like Fifa and Madden, along with the company’s latest attempt to revive the struggling NBA Live series. We may also see a few sports games announced for the Nintendo Switch.

Visceral Star Wars Game: This is unlikely, but I’ll throw it out anyways. Visceral’s open world Star Wars game could always make an appearance, but it would overshadow Battlefront II in a significant way– something EA wouldn’t want.

Need for Speed: The recently announced Need for Speed: Payback, coming later this year, will receive a lot of attention. EA needs to start the hype train on this one, especially after the series took a much-needed break last year.

New BioWare IP: Bioware has been cooking up a new IP, and it’s likely we’ll see it in a big way during the presentation. There’s a good chance this will be the show-stealer EA needs. It’s also possible that this new IP will be unveiled on a different company’s stage…
