EA doesn’t want anything to do with the recent HD remake craze

Who doesn’t love having their favorite video games from years back updated with high-definition graphics and brought to modern platforms? As great as many HD remakes are, there are plenty of publishers out there that like to release garbage remakes that were rushed to the market in order to make a quick buck. EA doesn’t want to be one of these publishers, and since the company has such a massive arsenal of older games and too little time to dedicate to remaking them, it’s decided to avoid the whole HD remake craze that’s been sweeping the gaming market in recent years. 

When you look back at games like the original Dead Space or Mass Effect, it’s easy to see titles with the potential for being big sellers as remastered editions or remakes with extra HD graphics. However, EA doesn’t see it that way… not one bit. The company’s chief operating officer, Peter Moore, revealed to IGN that EA actually isn’t in the happy of rehashing old IP with a fresh coat of paint. The COO of one of the largest AAA publishers stated: “Remakes, because of who we are, and this broad portfolio of intellectual property…you add all that together, I don’t know where we find the time to do remakes, […] We’re a company that just likes to push forward.” As much hate as EA gets for all of the decisions that they make within the electronic entertainment sphere that many deem are anti-consumer and completely uncalled for, I think it’s safe to say that what Peter Moore is saying here is 100% correct. While many companies, including Sony and Microsoft, have opted to re-release HD versions of games that have only just come out within the span of a year, Electronic Arts has actually strayed far away from the HD remaster circle.
