A note from Laura Miele, President of EA Entertainment and Technology

Laura Miele writes:

"[Re: Respawn] ... we have decided to pivot away from early development on a Star Wars FPS Action game to focus our efforts on new projects based on our owned brands while providing support for existing games."

"[Re: Battlefield Studios] ... we immediately appointed leadership at Criterion to oversee our single-player work. As part of this change, we'll be winding down Ridgeline as a standalone studio in Seattle, with some team members joining Ripple Effect. They'll continue to work with teams across DICE, Ripple, and Criterion as they build the next Battlefield experience."

"[Re Mobile] ... we have brought together the mobile and HD franchise teams under singular leadership across EA SPORTS FC, Madden NFL, and The Sims. The next step is setting up our standalone mobile portfolio for growth. Over the past few weeks, we have announced we are sunsetting Kim Kardashian Hollywood, Lord of the Rings, Tap Sports Baseball, and F1 Mobile."

If true, then VERY smart move by EA. No one wanted this game. No one at all. I mean, a possibly First Person Titanfall like game starting the Mandalorian??? PFFT!!! As if...MID!!!

EA Sports - There is no Game!

Tacoboto8h ago

And just a week ago we were excited for a Mandalorian FPS. And more job losses - 1500 industry workers in just Sony and EA alone this week so far. Terrible news after terrible news.

WTF?!?!
They cancelled the most anticipated EA game from Respawn devs?
Are you ******* kidding me ?!

Addendum, with all these changes (not mistakes) that resulted in over 1k layoffs since last March, the Executive team will not be receiving a 40% salary bonus in 2024. That is now reduced to 38%.

EA: We were making a game that ppl wanted and realized we could make a worse game and make more money.

Portal is a great little piece of kit. I use it and the G-Cloud for my console streaming needs.

I looked today after seeing this and you still can’t find one for retail.

As a dad of two this is the best gadget I could have ever bought for the price. In a week I've finished Valhalla and dived well into Tales of Arise, which previously would have taken me a month or more. It helps that it's so comfortable and amazing to play on, the design is far better than pictures would suggest. As someone who used to remote play on my phone with a backbone, only an insane person would say the experience is comparable. You just can't underestimate the appeal of playing on an 8 inch screen with DualSense controls, of playing in bed, or while the kids are watching or being able to hide what you're playing from the little ones because 90% of your games aren't child friendly. Loving my Portal.

As a father of 5 children I approve this message.

It’s a fantastic device and works flawlessly on the 5ghz Wi-Fi band.

TheEnigma3131d 15h ago

This works better than I thought. A quick tip, for best results, wire your PS5 and make sure you are connected to 5gz on the Portal.

The message, written by producer Tomoya Asano, suggests that a new announcement related to the series will be coming later in 2024.

Maybe for the Switch successor?

OtterX2d ago

That would be great. I doubt the Switch successor will come this year, probably Spring of '25 (bc of rumors). But that would line up if they made an announcement on Bravely Default III in the Fall. Maybe a cross-platform title?

Nyxus2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Yeah it was originally planned for this year but it seems to have been moved to 2025. I wonder when they will announce it though. Anyway I still need to play Bravely II (do already own it).

OtterX2d ago

@Nyxus You know, I still only ever played the demo of Bravely Default II, and loved it. It was just one of those things where I was playing so many other things at the time it came out. Next time I see it on sale I'll pick it up. I'm hardcore on the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters at the moment. I'm really loving them, particularly bc it's the first time that the classics have included actual orchestrated music.

Nyxus2d ago

I'm really hoping the Switch successor is backwards compatible, because I have quite a backlog for the system, including several RPGs like Bravely II, Octopath Traveler I and II and Fire Emblem Engage.

ZeekQuattro2d ago

Nice. I really enjoyed Bravely Default 2. Surprised they didn't port 1 and Bravely Second at some point.

FinalFantasyFanatic1d 21h ago

I'm surprised that didn't happen either, seems like an obvious choice, but then again, I hear Bravely Default 2 didn't do very well.
