In an announcement that will surprise precisely no-one, EA has confirmed its next batch of sports titles for the coming fiscal year. As will probably keep happening on a yearly basis unless EA decides to cancel, we can expect to see FIFA 17, NHL 17, Madden 17 and a new NBA Live title sometime in the next 12 months.

The news came out of EAs latest earnings report and while not surprising news, it does give us some timelines to expect the new stuff. FIFA, NHL and Madden will all be out during Q3 2016, right around when we'd expect them. NBA Live will follow later, scheduled for Q1 2017 right now.

This all fits nicely with what EA has already announced regarding its not E3, but at E3 time event next month in London and LA. We're expecting to see three new EA Sports titles there and it looks like we've got the confirmation on which those will be.
