The game is said to be an Assassin’s Creed style large open world action title helmed by Jade Raymond (who was behind the original Assassin’s Creed).
The news comes during EA’s earnings call for their 2016 fiscal year. The 2017 year has just started, but the word is the new title wont be out until the 2020 or 2021 year.
Also mentioned during the call were action oriented Star Wars titles, most likely parts of Disney’s new licensed approach to videogames after they recently announced they were backing out of games publishing.
