That would be unfortunate, if they're emulating Activition's earlier decision to drop "high risk" IPs in favor of the popular franchises.

That is rather unfortunate because it means the age of cult titles are going to, with a few small exceptions, dissapear.

I would definately be gutted if Mirror's Edge and other IPs were dropped in order for EA to print money with sequels to the games they know will sell many copies, regardless of whether the game is held high amongst the gaming community.

It's a shame that the frequent and terrible Madden games are guaranteed titles when brilliant games like Mirror's Edge are dropped...

I hate the modern gaming movement.

Actually, as I understand it EA had stopped with the sports rehashes last year -- seemed part of their new mantra.

Anyway, I have to give them credit for trying. They gave Mirror's Edge, Brutal Legend, etc. a shot. Even after numbers weren't great, they said they'd be going forward...apparently the gaming community at large just wants the same old stuff.

But now Rockstar games,Sony, Capcom & EA look more safer companies
