EA has reiterated that a game the company is describing as a "Major IP" will be released before March 31, 2023, and it just may or may not be Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
On Page 10 of EA's Q2 FY 2023 Results slideshow, EA lists the games it is expecting to release before the end of its Fiscal Year 2023 on March 31, 2023. While there are many games we've already learned about in its Q4 list, including the Dead Space Remake, PGA Tour, Super Mega Baseball, and Wild Hearts, there is one game listed only as "Major IP" that is quite notable.
If we look at every EA game in development, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor seems to be the best bet for what this mystery game may be. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the sequel to 2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and it was first announced Star Wars Celebration 2022 with a 2023 release window.
Other EA games we know about are Dragon Age: Dreadwolf (which has only just completed its Alpha development milestone), the next Mass Effect (which is seemingly even farther away), EA's two other unannounced Marvel Games alongside its Iron Man game that is early in development, and two other unannounced games from Star Wars Jedi: Survivor developer Respawn.
Two other possibilities could be skate. or the return of EA Sports College Football, but the former only reached pre-pre-alpha in July 2022 and the latter may not make sense as we haven't learned any more about it and EA may want to time the release of the game with the start of the college football season in the fall.
Obviously, it could also be a game we have yet to learn about but, with April only less than half a year away, that gets less and less likely each and every day. Sure, Fallout 4 did something like that, but those types of releases are few and far between.
EA had previously confirmed that this "Major IP" would be released in Q4 of its Fiscal Year 2023 back in May, and it looks as though it is still planned to make it before that March 31, 2023, end date.
