I’m not going to bore you with another publisher’s financial report like I did yesterday, but instead I’ll give you a quick note on something interesting that popped up during EA’s FY2011 report. It appears Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3 may be getting mobile versions before the end of EA’s next fiscal year. On one of the physical reports EA sent out that lists every game they have scheduled over the next year, Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3 both have “handheld/mobile” tags next to them. The report states Battlefield 3 is slated for Q3 while Mass Effect 3 is now readying a Q4 launch (fiscal year).
It could be a typo or mistake for all we know but it certainly seems possible. The report has been live for almost 24 hours now and EA has yet to come out and clarify so all signs point to this being real. The real question is what will these versions entail?
