EA’s Riccitiello wants Boom Blox sequel

By Mike, Thursday, 17 July 2008 17:57 GMT

In an interview with MTV, EA CEO John Riccitiello said that Spielberg’s Boom Blox was a “hit title” and he’d love to see a sequel.

When asked about Boom Blox’s relatively poor sales return Riccitiello said: “First off, we had a week’s sales with no advertising. Last time I checked MTV wasn’t a financial network, but it met our expectations.”

He added: “Boom Blox was a competent seller in the month it was introduced and only had a week of sales without advertising. So it’s doing actually quite well.

“We haven’t announced a sequel, but I would tell you that I certainly am curious [about doing one]. It’s a hit title.”
