Electronic Arts will release 20 games in its 2005/2006 mobile games line-up. The first eight will be Madden NFL 2006, The Sims™ 2 Mobile, Need for Speed™ Underground 2, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 2006, EA SPORTS FIFA Football 2006, Poppit!™, Turbo 21™ and Tri Peaks Solitaire. The games will be unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles on May 18, 2005.
EA’s first foray into mobile games came in 2004 with a partnership with I-Play. They now expect that "the world of mobile gaming is about to explode! Better games, richer graphics and deeper communities will take cell phone gaming to entirely new depths with experiences that are as adrenaline charged as console gaming," according to John Batter, VP and General Manager of EA Mobile.
