Apple is expected to unveil its new tablet device next week, and, just like the iPhone, gaming is expected to play a role in its appeal. To that end, it appears that Apple has reached out to mega publisher EA to develop games specifically designed to showcase the new device’s capabilities, reports the Wall Street Journal (via GamesIndustry.biz).
Nothing more is really known about the partnership at this point, but expect to hear plenty more about it, and the host of other deals Apple has struck with other media companies and content providers, in the coming weeks. I contacted EA just to see what I could find out, so I’ll let you know if I hear anything.
