EA has said that it wants to expand into the 'gigantic action' space, because you know - it's not there with its franchises like Battlefield and Titanfall.

EA Studios chief Patrick Soderlund spoke with IGN, saying: "If you look at the biggest segment in our industry, which is action, we don't have a lot. EA is not known to make gigantic action games like Assassin's Creed or Batman or GTA or those types of games that are really big. The strategic direction that we put in motion is to expand our portfolio more into that segment, to see what can we bring to gamers that maybe hasn't been done before".

If anything, EA is going to make an open-world game, with Soderlund teasing: "I'm not suggesting we're going to go after GTA and sell 50 million units. We would love to! But what I'm saying is those types of absolutely AAA, big productions is what we want to do. And I think for us to do that, we need the right people".

You know what I think it'll be? I think it'll be a Battlefield game set in a persistent universe, but completely huge compared to what we have now. Maybe I'm just wishing? Hopefully I'm right.
