GAME is to once again stock titles from EA beginning next week, VG247 has learnt.

We’ve learned from a source tonight that GAME will now stock EA’s lineup beginning next Monday.

The publisher has kept its games from the retailer since just before it went into administration a few weeks ago, including in particular Mass Effect 3 and FIFA Street, as well as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 and The Sims 3: Showtime. Those games will now be sold as of next week.

The last game it stocked from EA was SSX at the end of February. EA UK boss Keith Ramsdale previously said GAME’ would return like a “phoenix rising from the flames”.

Publishers have started to head back to GAME since it exited administration at the start of the month after a buyout from OpCapita. One of those is Nintendo, who are now stocking Wii RPG Pandora’s Tower in the chain.

Other companies to declare their return include Capcom and Tecmo Koei.

Both GAME and EA have been emailed.
