During the Stifel 2013 Technology Conference on Tuesday, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said the firm plans to support current generation consoles until 2017. Gamespot reports the quote from the conference, which we’ve reported on quite a bit. During it Jorgensen talked about the possibility of a Star Wars: Battlefront game, developments on Wii U and how more games and information on all its titles will be revealed at E3. You an listen to the presentation through EA’s Investor Relations page if you like.

    it will be interesting to see how much ea must trim and squeeze their evolving frost4 engine to fit into the ps3/x360/wii-u without losing all framerate, high texture quality and game play.

    @4 What framerate? You mean that sub 30FPS on 720p (or lower) resolutions.

    This is most likely referencing their sports games considering FIFA 12 came out on PS2.
