What’s also interesting here is that EA has confirmed that it is working on remasters of fan favorites. From what we know so far, there is a remaster/remake of Command & Conquer that is currently under development. Other than that, though, we don’t know what other games EA will remaster.
In other news, EA has stated that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has exceeded its expectations. As such, the game has sold more than 8 million copies (original expectations were between 6-8 million copies). The publisher also expects the game to sell 10 million units by March 31st 2020.
Last but not least, EA plans to expand the Star Wars IP in order to meet the demands of the broad player base.
