Electronic Arts – EA, a name synonymous with the world of gaming for the longest time.
The world of game development is advancing towards a rapid growth rate and the progress that is happening in the industry is unstoppable.
Many a years ago, the development was slow, and when the gaming industry initially boomed, the games were all based in DOS, and featured pixelated graphics and a slow growth.
Electronic Arts is a name which has brought a lot of games to the table. Remember the times when Road Rash was the biggest thing in the world of gaming!
The coolest kids were the ones who knew the passwords and cheat-codes to the game – Do you remember? X Y Z Z Y S P O O N (Shift+1) ?
Those were the days! The gaming industry then shifted to consoles and then the console evolution also began. Electronic Arts have their own sub-brand which specifically deals in games related to sports.
The EA Sports has had various games in the sports niche such as the NBA, FIFA and various other games, golf, skating, hockey, etc. in their kitty.
The company is one of the most experienced names in the world of sports. However, the one game that has been heavily popular for them is that of the EA Sports Cricket series.
The last official EA Sports cricket game came out in the year 2007. Since then there has been no new developments in the series, until now. Rumours are in the air that the company is going to release a new installment of the series, the EA Sports Cricket 2016. And the game was long overdue. The company hasn’t been developing new games in the series since a long time and the timing seems perfect now.
The last time the game came out, many names which have long retired now were still active. Names like Freddie Flintoff, Matthew Hayden, Adam Gilchrist, Shane Bond, Sourav Ganguly, Virendra Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar have all retired/gone from their national teams now. The new game is all set to feature the latest ashes tournament featuring the new and revamped English and Australian teams.
The theme of the game is supposed to be ‘a brave new world’ and it will also feature the Australian big bash and the Indian Premier League tournaments which have been quite the sensation. The new game will also feature the latest ICC rules which have just come in, where the batting power-play has been removed.
