EA Games hosted its Play Live event last week and while the stream lacked a list of announcements other than FIFA 21, Madden and Star Wars, the future of the company seems bright. In addition, EA Games is focusing on the next-gen PS5 ane Xbox Series X platforms as stepping stones into the future. Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, EA’s Chief Studios Officer Laura Miele says next-gen offers an opportunity to evolve how they think about gameplay.

“We want players to be able to play our games where they want to, which is why we’re bringing more games to more platforms including Stadia, Steam, Switch and Epic Game Store. We’re also making a big push on cross-play because we know a fundamental motivation in playing games is about connecting with friends and family who may choose to play on a different console or platform. The ecosystem in which we are operating has changed for the better, and we want to be everywhere players are.”

Laura went on to explain that the arrival of next-gen means developers are no longer held back by older hardware. In addition, there’s no longer a barrier within the player community. Laura explains that the technology inside the PS5 and Xbox Series X will allow for players to be immersed in a fantasy world or a soccer pitch within seconds.

Laura explained how different this generational jump will be compared to previous ones saying the hardware and power will not only be able to deliver better graphics compared to current-gen, but also more detailed world and richer gaming experiences.

“Historically, console transitions have been punctuated by increased graphic fidelity and that hasn’t changed — this next generation of games will certainly take a visual leap — but we are also taking advantage of the extra memory and CPU cycles to bring a lot more detail to life.”
