EA has had some bad days but there is no doubt that this is a big company that we are talking about and that it has some big plans for the future. The company is working on introducing a couple of new games and it seems that EA Motive is working on a new IP, one that we have not heard of. Motive’s Jade Raymond touched on the matter and the following is what she had to say in this regard:
In Montreal, we have a big IP and then we have a second project, and the thing that I’m really excited about is that project was totally born from three passionate people who just worked on a pitch in their spare time. They were super passionate, saying ‘let us prototype it, let us do it,’ and we managed to give them some space to get it done because it was exciting. People saw what was going on and more people wanted to join their team, Now it’s a fully-fledged project, so we were able to get that going within Motive, which I think is one of the benefits of having a smaller studio.
Let see what the company is working on as we speak. There is the Star Wars game, Plants vs Zombies, a new IP that has not been announced yet and there is yet another project that EA Motive is working on that we do not know about. While EA does have a lot of resources and the company can afford to make all these games at the same time, one might think that this might not be the best way to go.
Working on so many games at the same time can be thought of as resources not being allocated properly especially when 2 of these games are new IPs. While I for one am not sure regarding the route that EA is taking, it should be interesting to see what the outcome of all this will be like and what the game that EA Motive is working on will be based on. For now, all that we can do is wait and see.
