*UPDATE* – A source close with the matter has informed us that the information told by EA Mobile’s UK PR Manager is incorrect. Both Need for Speed Most Wanted and Real Racing 3 WILL be making their way onto BlackBerry 10!
When asked if EA has been preparing any titles for BlackBerry 10, EA Mobile’s UK PR manager, Tom Goldberger, indicated that there was nothing he was aware of. Goldberger said that broader deals with BlackBerry 10 platform creators might be underway, which he isn’t involved with.
Goldberger specifically stated that none of the titles on show at EA’s event in London, including FIFA 13, Need for Speed Most Wanted and Real Racing 3, were being developed with BlackBerry 10 in mind.
However, the titles may still make it to BlackBerry 10. Goldberger confirmed that EA is taking a ‘wait and see’ approach to the new BB10 platform. This is a little disappointing, considering RIM and EA appeared to have a strengthening relationship. Buyers of the BlackBerry PlayBook may remember it came pre-loaded with Need For Speed Undercover. Will this change your support for EA games if they ever arrive on BlackBerry 10?
