In the not too distant past, EA had franchises that were loved by fans and successful. Here is Extra.ie's top 4 EA franchises that need to make a comeback.
I know it's in the middle of some sort of Ip ownership / publisher boondoggle but I would love to see another Kingdoms of Amalur created by whoever can make it happen
well I got good news/bad news for you: the IP was acquired by THQ Nordic (as has a lot of other IP) the problem being, that they've said not every IP that they acquire is going to wind up spawning a sequel or a game, and that they are going to gauge the market slowly to see what happens. I would think that means we're not going to see anything soon. the problem with kingdoms of Amalur is that although it was very highly lauded and highly praised, it did not sell well at all, and neither have a lot of other THQ Nordic offerings over the past 2 years. it seems like the studios development prowess underneath them, aren't quite matching their ambition. they're releasing a lot buggy unfinished mediocre things, that just aren't doing well, and that's not going to get more games made. To date Darksiders 3 has been one of their strongest launches, and that has met with some controversy... and then of course there's Elix, and a few others, which did not fare well at all...
I liked the army of two games..
I did too. Loved the co op
Last one was the best of the three👍 a ton of fun to play, great customization, controlled well, looked really well, and it was obvious when they released it that they weren't going to release any more after that, because they pulled the budget basically let the studio know, the last year before it came out, that was going to be it, and they weren't getting any more budget money, either... 😱 it's a shame, because they really did something great with the third game, and it should have gone forward...
You forgot Dead Space.
This is the one game I would like to see but EA will find a way to screw it up like they do every thing else they get thier hands on
that's the only one I would have wanted to see. But since Visceral was closed I don't see any EA team being able to due the IP justice. Dead Space is an IP that needs to be made though!!
LotR: Battle for Middle Earth Hell yeah
Do people really want them to return under EA of today? They ruin anything they touch.
Problem is they'd sully the name of these IPs with their current greedy practices. I'd love to see them come back, but under new publishers. but my GAWD do they have a lot i'd love to be revived especially with today's technology. Here's a short list of game that would make my [email protected]#K explode if they got a sequel (not under EA): Mercenaries Mirrors Edge Burnout Freedom Fighters Fight Night BLACK
Black was/is a great game, Freedom Fighters deserves more.... I'd like to see them go further back, reboot the Strike series ( Desert, Soviet, Jungle ) reboot Road Rash while they're at it too
yeah, EA is one company I would love to see collapse, and have all of their IP's acquired by other publishers/ developers, without a doubt. there are soooo many of them...
Black and White
Def Jam! Seriously hip hop has a lot of punchable faces these days, it'll sell millions! Also C&C for console.
Would be great if they did an old school vs new school
Everyone talks such shit about EA , why would you want anything from them ?
There aren't many games I liked from EA and I definitely don't want them to ruin any more. The games I thought were good like Dead Space they ruined so I don't want them to bring it back. Unless someone else was doing the games
SSX, Burnout and Dead Space. Actually, those are the only games I would buy from EA at this point. Haven’t bought any of their shit in a while.
I think you mean games that need to be sold to competent publishers.
bruh, fuck EA, i wouldn't want them to touch any of those with a ten foot pole
Middle-Earth second age era
It's EA. Forget it.
I want to see those comebacks! But not under EA!!
Just not by EA. Micro transactions /SJW galore over at EA.
Fight night definitely. Played the crap out of it against friends online. Juat downloaded from ea access and playing through it again. Still good.
I would put Dead space on top of the list!
Mercenaries: playground of destruction! they were supposed to be a third installment, eons ago that never materialized, it was pretty much "just cause",which became the single player version of what that game was supposed to be, the third installment of mercenaries was supposed to be a 3 player co-op with all protagonist available in a huge destructive world... if you actually take the time to research it, the amount of Studios that electronic arts has swallowed up, along with lP's, and killed, rivals anyone else in the industry by far... it's one of the reasons they're so deeply hated by a lot of people, that remember what gaming was like 10 to 15 years ago, before they started scooping up everything in sight has this big hungry corporation, and then either destroying it with internal development Studios that had no clue as to what they were making, or they just shuttered it absolutely and completely, to remove competition from the market so their own products could dominate. EA is hated for a reason, and what they're doing with things like Star Wars/battlefield and the few other predominant IP's that they still have going, is all the proof you need as to why they are such a bad (for the games industry and community) company.
From EA? No thanks, I'm ok without them.
