Rumour – EA Partners site suggests new Populous, Insomniac and Respawn games in FY2013

Internet sleuthing has uncovered what seems to be two unannounced games due in the next 12 months, plus a third, much-anticipated project.

A NeoGaf user claims to have stumbled across a wiki page labelled “EAP Marketing FY13 Home Page” – the site has since been protected with a login.

The user claims to have found a list of the following titles on the site: The Secret World; Overstrike; Populous; Outernauts; Respawn.

Both Funcom’s The Secret World and Insomniac’s Overstrike are to be published by EA Partners (commonly abbreviated to EAP) during FY2013 – April 2012 to March 2013 – but the others are a little more mysterious.

Populous is a classic Pete Molyneux-created property owned by EA; no news of a revival of the god sim has surfaced, but fellow Bullfrog production Syndicate has been rebooted as a co-op shooter due for release in february.

A domain registration for Outernauts by Insomniac Games suggests a second collaboration with EA Partners from the Ratchet & Clank developer.

Respawn is likely to refer to the new game from Respawn Entertainment, a new studio founded by former Infinity War heads Jason West and Vince Zampella after their dramatic break with Activision.

The authenticity of the site and its contents has not been established.
