As we’re on the cusp of Microsoft announcing their next console, EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen has detailed the company’s publishing plans for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as the next-generation begins. Thought that EA and other publishers would abandon the current consoles soon after the next-gen releases? Think again.
Jorgensen spoke today at the Stifel 2013 Technology Conference, stating that EA has plans to support current generation technology through at least 2017. It’s likely that a lot of these titles will be ports of what’s available on the next-generation of consoles, but it’s great to see that EA won’t abandon consumers that either aren’t able or just don’t want to upgrade their systems just yet.
