Origin to offer third-party titles starting in November
EA has announced third-party PC titles will be offered on platform Origin starting in November.
Batman: Arkham City, and Saints Row: The Third , and titles from Capcom will be added, alongside undisclosed “top new releases,” from partners.
“We are very pleased to partner with EA and have Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s key PC titles available on Origin,” said WB senior VP for digital games Greg Ballard. “In growing our digital offerings for consumers we want to give fans increased access to critically acclaimed titles such as Batman: Arkham City.”
EA has hinted that third-party content would be joining the service since the summer, and as recently as September said the content would arrive “very soon.”
The firm will release its latest financial results this evening, and the call to investors afterward will likely provide more information on the matter.
