EA Dates Dragon Age 2, Dead Space 2, Crysis 2, Console Sims 3

Following the release of its fiscal third quarter results today, Electronic Arts outlined its preliminary release schedule for the coming year and beyond, including sequels to Dragon Age and Dead Space as well as a console version of The Sims 3. Both Crysis 2, externally developed by Crytek, and "The Sims 3 on Console Title," as EA is tentatively referring to it, are due during the last calendar quarter of this year. Crysis 2, the third release in the franchise, is due for both consoles and PC, marking the first time the series will appear in a non-PC-exclusive capacity. In the first quarter of next year, EA's fiscal 2011 fourth quarter, the company says it will release Dead Space 2 for consoles (almost certainly Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the launch systems of the original game), as well as a new and currently untitled Dragon Age game for PC, console, and handheld. It is unclear in this case if "handheld" refers to traditional gaming consoles like Nintendo DS and PSP, or to iPhone and other multifunctional devices. Also on the slate is the still-mysterious "Shooter from Epic," announced back in 2008 as being in development for EA Partners by Epic Games and its subsidiary studio People Can Fly, acquired in 2007.
