"always looking" when it maybe the "right opportunity" to dust off past glories, but only if the team has a passion for it.
NBA Jam launched at the end of 2012, and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition hits this month. FIFA Street is back after three years, SSX after four - but that's it for now.
"Not right now. We're always looking at when the right opportunity may happen," replied Andrew Wilson, asked if they've got any more EA Sports Big label games cooking.
"We launched NBA Jam at the end of last year and we've launched NBA Jam: On Fire Edition on PSN and Xbox Live this month. Fifa Street is coming back for the first time in three years and SSX is back for the first time in four." There's got to be a passion for it first.
"We never say never, but it has to be at a time where we have a team that's passionate about the property. What we've found is that passionate teams build great game."
"If we have that sort of team and we think the time's right to make that sort of product, we'd jump right back in there," continued the EA Sports executive.
Looking forward to FIFA Street and SSX's return? Both release on Xbox 360 and PS3 in early 2012. NBA Elite is still around but only retails when they've "got a great game."
No other EA Sports Big titles in works without 'passionate team'
