EA also said "The Art Director will ultimately lead a team of conceptual designers, character and environment artists and whomever else will bend to their will, to create the coolest piece of entertainment software the world has ever known."

are they making, KILLZONE3? I kid I kid!!

MAR-TYR-DOM2998d ago

nice try,
though with the money EA has and the number of dev teams working for them, you can count me in the hype train. I truly hope they create something spectacular. I mean if they can reproduce something along the lines of what infinity ward did with Call of Duty 4 then it will be a success.

BattleAxe2998d ago

I really hope that they make a spectacular Medal of Honor game. Rising Sun, Vangard and European Assault were not that good, but I really liked MoH: Airborne.

Black 2 would be kick ass aswell.

UnSelf2998d ago

if it isnt a PS3 exclusive or a PC exclusive or announced for the Xbox 720, then i dont believe it

Ju2998d ago

Damn you guys. To fast for me. Black 2 was on my mind as well.

edgeofblade2998d ago

Bestest FPS Evar?

...failure confirmed.

chrisnick2998d ago

im getting tired of playing soooo many fps...granted the majority of them, especially kz2 and cod4, are freaking awesome its just sooo many of them, all the time, in my face and when i get bored of one, what other AAA can i play? Another FPS! AHHHHHH!!! anyway, its my own problem sigh.......i need some infamous/drake/ ratchet in my life.

chrisnick2998d ago (Edited 2998d ago )

stfu and go pwn in too human...trolls will be trolls.

jammy_702998d ago

where you cook dinner and do the washing up

then go to dances.... and stufff, thats like the ultimate game

NO GUNS ALLOWED, only golf clubs and cricket bats for the space monkeys...


back in the day i would have said this is bull crap ! EA + best game ever = lolololololol... ya right !

BUT, and its a big " BUT "... This is the same EA that gave us Dead Space and i have to say that was my favourite game last year. I loved everything about it. So with that in mind, i know EA has always had the money to make such games, but now they seem to also have the direction. another case in point, the new Need for Speed.

so, i will throw a lot of table salt at this, but its not impossible.

Don_Frappucino2998d ago (Edited 2998d ago )

They seem to have come a long way from the games of old. No longer can we say 'Fifa 95 or 2005, they're both the same but with new players don't you know', or 'EA? Isnt that the company that makes sport games and Medal Of Honour?' They've poured millions into R&D of new IP's and existing ones. They and actibizzle seem to have swapped sides, with actibizzle publishing either sequels or crap and EA actually creating brilliant original games or concepts.

On topic: I hope its not a WW2 MOH. I did hear a while back they were possibly working on a MOH in Afganistan or somewhere else in the middle east, but it was all rumours. Black 2 FTW!

EDIT: Can anyone think of any last gen FPS better than Black or WW2 FPS last gen better than MOH:Frontline.

Oh and if anyone wants to put halo please do this first.

1. Grab a pencil
2. Put it between your ring finger and middle finger of your hand.
3. Squeeze your fingers that around the pencil really hard.

Really hurts doesn't it? Thats for being a HaloTard and thinking it was a better FPS than black.

(Yes i robbed that one off Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation fame before anyone shouts at me)

silenius2998d ago

Please... stop... don't make me laugh. EA is making the best fps... ooooookaaaay....
I bet my balls it will have ONLY great graphics, Everything else will s*ck...

ZuperAmazingCooKie2998d ago

That gives them some cred in my book.

pain777pas2998d ago

Do we need another FPS? Wow! How original.........

evrfighter2998d ago (Edited 2998d ago )

they didn't make crysis, crytek made crysis. EA published crysis. But EA making the best fps ever....

Grain of Salt. People reading this should know off hand what happens when you over-hype a game here.

This is EA. You can expect to paying for DLC at least once a month after this game is released.

Unless they are finally making their DICE dev's start work on Battlefield 3 then i'll give em the benefit of the doubt ONLY if remains a pc exclusive. But like I said this is EA we're talking about. I get the feeling battlefield games will from here on in, be hardware limited by consoles...

XxZxX2998d ago

they should name it Best FPS ever. Even if it's not, The name will say otherwise. Can't argue with the name.

Hmmmm, Halo was a launch title (Nov. 15, 2001), Halo 2 came out Nov. 9, 2004, and Black released Feb. 22, 2006. But somehow Halo has garnered more accolades....just maybe, gamers want a title with more than "only a half-dozen hours long and no multiplayer". I am not saying one is better than the other, just pointing out what seems to be facts.

Hahaha...I like that.

No Way2998d ago

What's wrong with Too Human? =(
If there wasn't so much hype behind it, it would be a decent game.. =/
I liked it, just like some people liked Haze.


Criterion is just done with Burnout.

From launch 'till today Criterion made tons of free upgrades, a perfected/bug-free game, good quality paid DLC (not to mention well times too, they supported the game original and additional content for about a year before starting milking us).

Just imagine how great this will be if EA give them the same freedom they give for Burnout, they'll launch a complete Black 2 that is practically free of bugs which they'll patch/update regularly, they'll stuff us with free updates (actually good business, this IS a selling point for informed customers) and only make paid-DLC some time after, with the right price and good quality.

Damn, they maybe even launch it on PSN, to people that prefer to take their games without leaving the counch and don't make a plastic and dust collection in the shelf (I actually love this kind of collection! LOL).

RememberThe3572998d ago

Wait, you would seriously bet your balls?

I wouldn't bet my ball on a damn thing. Stranger things have happened.

GameGambits2998d ago

If Redwood Shores' studio for EA made it then I'd believe it. Dead Space is near perfect in its genre of survival horror so much so that if they branch out into any genre I expect stellar results.

The rest of EA? Not a chance in hell. I mean did you see that new Army of Two trailer where they say everything is in game footage in it? How would ANYONE think that is pre rendered, because it looks like straight up PS2 graphics. Years later from Army of Two and I don't see squat in real improvements in graphics, yet that piece of trash will go on to sell fine thanks to EA throwing money at it for ads and idiots buying it.

The Matrix2997d ago

It's obviously Black 2. Criterion will probably make it as well...since I haven't heard about any new burnouts.

Shepherd 2142997d ago (Edited 2997d ago )

you sir are wrong. Halo 2 destroyed Black in every way. Black looked pretty, but it was stupid. Almost every enemy had explosive barrels around them so you could shoot, and it was too easy and after fifty thousand explosions it was wearing really thin. Black was nothing but dumb fun for one playthrough, while Halo 2 revolutionized console shooters with its new online matchmaking and well-rounded value.

You dont believe me? COD4 and Gears 2 both took the online matchmaking that Bungie designed for Halo 2 and used it, building on what Halo 2 had created. Its a major reason why COD4 works so well online, because it uses a system heavily inspired by Halo 2.

thesummerofgeorge2997d ago

As much as I love FPS' the market is getting a little saturated... I miss RPG's!!! I feel like the industry's decided people don't want em anymore, but we do. The possibilities for RPGs with next gen tech could be so amazing, if only there were still a few companies tryin to out-RPG each other rather than tryin to out-FPS each other... Hell there's room for both. I guess I'm a little off topic but I'm an RPG fanatic and quite honestly this generation has abandoned RPG fans, thus far.

Nikuma2997d ago

LOL at the halo fanboy. Halo 2 is better cause it has good matchmaking YEAH!

Don_Frappucino2997d ago

Not another Halo 2 was da best FPS evah guy. Whilst bungie helped online gaming it didn't improve it to the degree where every game ever is now built on Halo2. Halo 2 was the worst in the series.

No, not really. The quote is.. "the best project we've ever worked on." and it's an FPS.

Generally, when you quote something you dont change it. Tip for the author there.

Hey EA, I'm still waiting on BLACK 2 :)

I'm not too familiar with EA Los Angles, but if there's a FPS game EA should develop, it's BLACK 2. Maybe EA Los Angles could to another BLACK, but I'd prefer the original devs. Criterion do it.

darkzodiac552998d ago

going to be black 2 or Black nextgen (working title)

joydestroy2998d ago

yeah, Black 2 would be awesome

mastiffchild2998d ago

Is it that time of year again? Y'know when we all moan about there being no current gen Black to make our ears bleed?

Big fan myself and the amnitions of the first game fit so well with current systems abilities that I'm very surprised it hasn't ever happened. There's been a couple of Black sequel demands this week.

Ju2998d ago

Black was Criterion, AFAIR, you know, those Burnout guys...;)

redsquad2998d ago

Seeing as how the story was open ended, I'm surprised we haven't seen some new version of BLACK this gen. The first was an excellent game that I still play on my PS3, so I really like to see some news on a sequal.
But, it would need to be longer (and they really need to add more save points to those bigger levels too!)

CoxMulder2998d ago (Edited 2998d ago )

that the people behind Black (Criterion?) teamed up with the guys from Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory (Splash Damage?) and some other developers to create a new FPS?

I seem to recall such a thing..


Found the article I was referring to:

No mention of a FPS in the article though, and it's only the technical director of Black.

But still, these people might be working on something big..
