Desert Strike launched in 1992 for SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive. It's an isometric shooter with plenty of winch action and accidental building collision. Plus its theme tune is pretty recognisable.
"Nothing to announce today," EA told IGN on the new filings. Previously EA Labels boss Frank Gibeau said they're "very cognisant of our past," but cautioned rushing into anything.
"I worked on Desert Strike and Road Rash back in the day on Sega Genesis so trust me I'm familiar with the IP history," Gibeau back in March of 2011. "So we constantly look at ways to grow the recent category of titles like Burnout, Need for Speed, Road Rash are constantly things we think about. It's the same thing with the old Bullfrog IPs like Dungeon Keeper, Populous, Powermonger, Magic Carpet, I can go on."
"So we do look at that stuff and are very cognisant of our past."
Is the world ready for more Desert Strike? Who else could escort UN delegates to safety in a school bus in a non-descript Middle-eastern country ruled by a megalomaniac dictator?
