Electronic Arts has revealed in a conference call that it is currently working on a number of next-generation sequels to some of its biggest franchises.
The Nintendo Wii will benefit from a specifically designed Sims title, while The Sims 2: Holiday Edition will launch on PS3, and The Sims 3 is in development for release before April 2009.
Other sequels revealed by EA's chief financial officer Warren Jenson include another title based on The Lord of the Rings, a return for the SimCity franchise and a next-generation version of first-person shooter Black.
During the fiscal year 2008, EA has also scheduled a further title in the Harry Potter series, a Warhammer title from recently acquired developer Mythic and a title to coincide with the upcoming The Simpsons movie.
However, two of EA's most-recently announced projects - PS3 and Xbox 360 title Army of Two and Crytek's PC title Crysis - have both been delayed until fiscal year 2008, meaning they will not appear until after March 2007.
