There is no doubt that 2007 will go down as one of the biggest years the gaming world has ever seen, but EA isn't wanting it to stop with 2007. They've unveiled some of the plans for the next two years, and let us say, it's a doozy.
Included in EA's tenative lineup for 2008 & 2009 are new installments of their Burnout and Need for Speed franchises, as well as a new Skate. Skate, now being dubbed the "Tony Hawk-killer", far exceeded expectations last year by seemingly besting the Goliath that is Tony and his skating buddies.
Also on the list was a confirmation that we would be seeing the 2nd and 3rd installments of the Mass Effect trilogy over the next 2 years, and that both of those will be coming to the 360 and PC. BioWare was also listed as developers on an upcoming Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game, which is not an MMO.
In short, it looks like EA is going to have a very very big couple of years. What do you good folk think? Is this a bunch of good news or is EA rushing out a bunch of titles to try and capitalize on the great releases of last year?
