EA: We’re supporting current gen through 2017

With an Xbox One release date and PS4 launch both having been confirmed for later this year, publisher EA has reassured gamers that it is not planning to turn its back on current-generation consoles anytime soon, committing to supporting the likes of the Xbox 360 for a further four years.

Speaking with Gamespot, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen confirmed that “EA will continue to publish games for current-generation consoles through at least 2017,” a decision that is sure to appease owners of current-generation hardware.

Formally unveiled earlier this week, the Xbox One follows the PS4 into the realms of reality, with Microsoft’s 360 follow-on to hit retailers ahead of the lucrative pre-Christmas shopping rush. Brining next-gen gaming graphics to the mix, both consoles have been built around 64bit PC architecture, and will heap much focus onto the more mainstream entertainment and multimedia aspects of the market.

Set to line up bundled with a second-generation Kinect peripheral, that will add more intuitive voice and gesture based controls to the console, the Xbox One is already looking poised to feature a strong game line up at launch.

With Call of Duty: Ghosts confirmed to hit next-gen consoles this year, Battlefield 4, FIFA 14 and Forza 5 have all also been confirmed for Microsoft’s PS4 rival.

Despite much focus being targeted on to the next-gen consoles, a selection of core AAA titles are still looking to favour current machinery, with the likes of GTA 5 and Gran Turismo 6 both confirmed for launch on existing but not upcoming consoles.
