EA is working on next generation console titles based on some of its biggest franchises, including FIFA and Battlefield, Frank Gibeau, president of The EA Labels, has told investors during an overnight earnings call.

Furthermore, these titles will be revealed at E3.

"Regarding next-generation consoles, we are under a non-disclosure agreement with our platform partners," said Gibeua. "However, we're planning a full reveal at E3, including more next-generation titles in development for fiscal '14.

"This will include breakthroughs in graphics and gameplay for some of our biggest franchises, including Battlefield, FIFA, Madden, NBA Live and Need for Speed. We plan to unveil new titles from EA Sports, BioWare and DICE, and a first look at some brand new games."

Gibeau also touched on the achievements of EA's teams at DICE and EA Sports in creating next generation game engines to power future titles.

"I also wanted to call out a big accomplishment by the teams that built the development engines for our next generation of games," he said. "Frostbite 3 engineered at DICE and a brand-new engine from EA Sports."

Gibeau says these engines are "powering all ... development on the new systems".

He added: "They provide an enduring common technology that saves cost, fosters efficiency and provides spectacular physics and graphics for our games. This isn't a vision. These engines are fully functional right now and powering the games you'll see at E3 in June.

"You'll hear more about Frostbite 3 and our new sports engine at our E3 investors breakfast in June."

I get a feeling that EA will be on stage with Microsoft during their E3 presentation.
