After the re-iteration that Battlefield 2018 will come out, as noted numerous of times, in 2018 by Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen, the CEO, Andrew Wilson, had this to say:
“From visually stunning, deeply immersive games like Star Wars Battlefront II and our next Battlefield, to ongoing innovation in our EA SPORTS titles, we are advancing the state of the art.”
We learn that next year will feature a variety of “big titles” from EA, which is noted below when 2018 or fiscal 2019 rolls around:
