EA’s “very exciting” new FPS yet to come

EA is intent on being the king of the FPS hill. EA CEO John Riccitiello reiterated as much during an investor call and hinted at one FPS title left unannounced for 2011. Responding to an investor’s question about Medal of Honor, Riccitiello  disclosed: “I don’t want to give away the thunder from our call but for quite a long time now I’ve been saying it’s our long term goal to take back the first person shooter category leadership.

“We’ve made strong progress in calendar ’10 over calendar ’09. This year, with the tail-end of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 still doing well and Medal of Honor still doing well and with Crysis and Bulletstorm, we’re clearly going to make more progress towards our goal and that’s before we get to what I think is going to be a very exciting entry later in the year that we’re not yet announcing.”

If you rule out Battlefield 3, which is already well on its way (but yet to be officially announced), this could signal another new title in EA’s quest for FPS domination.
