Dead Space 2, Dragon Age 2 for 2011

Star Wars: TOR pushed to FY2012.

EA has announced that Dead Space 2 and a new Dragon Age title (TBA) will be released in Q4 of fiscal 2011.

That runs from January to the end of March in calendar 2011. The dates were noted in EA's Q4 FY2010 results.

Also due in that period are People Can Fly's Bulletstorm, "Need for Speed TBA", "Fighting Title TBA" (presumably Fight Night Round 5), "New Sims Title TBA" and "Spore Title TBA".

Before then, in Q3 - or autumn 2010 - we'll see a new Harry Potter game (to coincide with the two-part Deathly Hallows films) NBA Jam, "EA Partners Game TBA", Crysis 2 and Medal of Honor.

Star Wars: The Old Republic will not be released in fiscal 2011.

EA's yearly loss was big ($677m) but not as big as last year ($1.09bn). Key contributors were Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Madden NFL 10, FIFA 10, The Sims 3 and Need for Speed: Shift, each of which shifted over 4m units.

Individually, FIFA 10 has sold over 10m units. The Sims franchise has shifted over 125m units in its lifetime.

Mass Effect 2 was picked out as a high-scoring game (and platinum seller), and launches of new IP Dragon Age: Origins, Dante's Inferno and EA Sports Active were noted.

EA claimed to be the number one publisher on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, and the top third-party publisher on Wii and PSP.
