EA Sports Active is to get a full sequel this autumn, the company said at GDC overnight.

Active 2.0 (a working title) is going to be a truly cross-platform affair, releasing for Wii, PS3, iPod touch and iPhone.

The title will deliver a “new suite of fitness products”, providing “true fitness results by featuring an innovative wireless control system powered by new leg and arm straps with motion sensors, a heart rate monitor to capture intensity and a new online hub to track and share workout data.”

There are no details yet as to how it’s going to work with the mobile platforms.

There’s a press release here.

EA confirmed in its Q3 fiscal call in February that the million-selling franchise would see release on other platforms this year.
