Fueled by EA Sports Ignite, EA Sports games will be alive with players who think, move, and behave like real athletes and dynamic living worlds, transforming the way people play and experience games on next gen consoles, says the company.
Created with the EA Sports Ignite engine, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, NBA LIVE 14, and EA Sports, will each launch within the next 12 months.
