EA would rather 'push forward' than release HD remakes, says Peter Moore


EA is not in the business of remastering existing games to drive revenue, instead choosing to push forward with new games, COO Peter Moore has told IGN.

"It feels like pushing stuff out because you've run out of ideas," said Moore on the popular decision to release remastered or HD remakes of older generation games."

Moore added: "Remakes, because of who we are, and this broad portfolio of intellectual property...you add all that together, I don't know where we find the time to do remakes.

"We're a company that just likes to push forward."

That said, Moore completely understands the commercial reasons for the popularity of remakes.

"For a lot of companies, remakes are a way to drive revenue," said Moore. "It's sub-cost, it's an IP that's there, you can remaster, and that's great. We don't do that here. I don't think that's ever been in our culture."
