EA to focus on doing HD blockbusters

Not so keen on the Wii any more?

EA Montreal boss Alain Tascan has said the company is going to focus on producing big blockbusters from now on.

Speaking to Edge, Tascan said it's all about "action titles and HD-quality products" these days. That might mean less Wii titles such as Boogie Superstar and Skate It coming out of EAM.

"The Wii market is a little bit unpredictable these days. We’re going to see how Christmas is going to do and while with the Wii we have had very successful titles, we are going to focus on big, blockbuster-type titles," said Tascan.

"It doesn't mean that we are going to abandon the Wii, but as a studio we want to be ready for new challenges."

Could those challenges include another Army of Two game? Seems likely, what with Tascan stating that AoT is "the most successful original IP EA has had in the last few years". They'll probably want to see how the second instalment does first though - Army of Two: The 40th Day, is out in January, and you can read all about it on the gamepage.
