EA is Indeed Changing Directions, Says EA Dev


EA has long been looked at as the monster who just keeps popping out sequels year after year in an effort to eventually get to the point where they could simply print money as needed. But new CEO John Riccitiello has been trying to shift the company’s focus, and EA Mythic’s Mark Jacobs believes that shift includes focusing on releasing higher quality games, and “games that players really want to play.”

Speaking with Eurogamer, he stated that EA’s new philosophy included “talking to the community, getting their feedback, and being involved.” EA Mythic delayed their Warhammer MMO earlier today, which Jacobs says was due to feedback received from players in the beta.

Jacobs also showered praise on EA for allowing Mythic, among other studios owned by EA, to “make great games.” I should hope that’s what EA would want.

took them that long to realize that? however, actions speak louder than words.

Considering how they handled Medal of Honor: Airborne, I would take it with a grain of salt.

I would say anything that sounds good too if it would sell more games.

Maybe they should talk to UbiSoft about updating the multilayer for Rainbow Six Vegas (PC)

Oh and Maybe they should pay more attention to the thousands of people that play BF2 with widescreen Monitors…

and re-do their account System, I don’t even know which games I have registered to which EA account anymore!

I think they need to talk to valve, specifically in regards to their source sdk base.
