EA Mobile reveals big iPhone roadmap for 2009

EA Mobile reveals big iPhone roadmap for 2009
EA Mobile has announced a big slate of iPhone games heading to the App Store during the rest of 2009, including many of its biggest franchises.

VP of worldwide studios Travis Boatman gave the big reveal during his presentation at GDC Mobile.

One big piece of news was the integration of Facebook Connect into EA Mobile's Scrabble game for iPhone, allowing people to play against those using the Facebook version of the game.

But other games heading to iPhone include FIFA, Command & Conquer, Madden NFL, NBA Live, SSX, Spore Creatures, Wolfenstein RPG, Connect 4, Battleship, RISK, Monopoly, Clue, American Idol and Mystery Mania.

They join previously announced titles Need For Speed Undercover, Tiger Woods PGA Tour, and Anytime Pool.

EA Mobile's fierce rival Gameloft recently announced (or rather, Apple announced on its behalf) that it had passed two million downloads on the App Store.

EA Mobile's strong slate of games shows it's determined not to be left behind on iPhone. However, it's equally encouraging that the publisher is using Facebook Connect to link its games to social networks - an area where EA's casual division is also increasingly active.

Stuart is a freelance journalist and blogger who's been getting paid to write stuff since 1998. In that time, he's focused on topics ranging from Sega's Dreamcast console to robots. That's what you call versatility. (Or a short attention span.)
