EA's Q1 plans revealed

Release dates for key titles including FFX-2, MOH Pacific Assault, Battlefield Vietnam and The Sims 2.

EA's delightful new press extranet has been updated with various release dates for some of its key and most interesting Q1 titles - namely Final Fantasy X-2, Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault, The Sims 2 and Battlefield Vietnam.

According to the latest schedule, the warring PC twins will be released a week apart, with Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault first into the breach on March 19th, followed on the 26th by Battlefield Vietnam.

The Sims 2 (PC), meanwhile, will appear on March 19th, so expect the following week's chart to be something of a given, while we won't have much longer to wait for Square Enix's Final Fantasy X-2 (PS2), which is due out on February 13th.

Other EA titles given concrete dates in the update include Looney Tunes: Back In Action (PS2, Cube and GBA), NFL Street (PS2, Cube, Xbox) and SimCity 4 Deluxe (PC), all on January 30th, as well as Cricket 2004 (PC, PS2) on Feb 13th and the next James Bond game, Everything or Nothing, which appears a week later on February 20th (PS2, Cube, Xbox).

Elsewhere in Q1 EA expects to ship the likes of R: Racing (hugely disappointing in my view, by the way - PS2, Cube, Xbox), Spawn: Armageddon (PS2, Cube, Xbox) and Ultima X: Odyssey (PC), with Fight Night 2004 (PS2, Xbox), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (PS2, Xbox, Cube, PC, GBA, Spectrum +2, Binatone, etc) and The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-Earth (PC) due in Q2 2004.
