EA's new Need For Speed game due this fall, new Mirror's Edge coming in 2016

Electronic Arts revealed plans to launch three previously unannounced games today as part of its quarterly financial results. Among them is a new entry in its long running racing series Need For Speed in the fall of 2015, plus new entries in its Mirror's Edge and Plants Vs Zombies franchises in the first quarter of 2016.

The listings show that all three games are due for the console and PC, which likely means that they will be available for the Xbox One, and maybe for the Xbox 360. No other details were revealed about these titles, but its likely EA will show one or more of these games during E3 2015 in June.

This will be the first new console and PC Need For Speed game from EA since Need for Speed Rivals in 2013. EA released Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare, a multiplayer shooter, for the Xbox One in early 2014. However, the big news is for the new Mirror's Edge game. Developer DICE released the sci-fi first person action game in 2009 for the Xbox 360 and PC, among other platforms. While it achieved critical acclaim, sales of the title were not as high as expected. However, EA has dropped many hints that plans for a sequel were in the works, and today's reveal confirms it.
