"A press release from EA today has announced that the president of the company will deliver the keynote speech at gamescom, the German gaming expo set to take place from August 15-19."
We already know about Frostbite engine, what else is there. New game announcements / demonstrations.
The announcement mentions digital gaming - that's huge. EA moving into what's most likely cloud based gaming is an interesting, and potentially highly profitable, move for the company.
They cant mention PS4 or Xbox 720, they might be able to hint and use the term "next generation", but they have signed confidentiality agreements with Sony and Microsoft and they obviously wont be talking about either of those companies when it comes to next gen.
In regards to hardware, yes. Confidentiality is a hindrance there. But software? They can discuss all they like.
They cant say if it'll be on the PS4 or 720 though, they cant run it on stage on those consoles. It is kind of the situation Watchdogs was going through at E3, high end PC running next gen games.
Could be more WiiU announcements...
