On Feb. 25, a representative of Sony confirmed that the original list of PlayStation 4 developers was incorrect, and an updated list saw the number of developers in Europe shrink from 53 to 28. On Feb.26, we now learn the new list as also incorrect.
“FIFA” and “Mass Effect” publisher Electronic Arts was listed as a partner for North America and Japan, but was not included in the European list. Criterion Games, a wholly owned EA studio, was on the list, but if its inclusion was mean to represent the company, why was EA-owned Swedish Battlefield developer DICE excluded?
This was another mistake and a new list from Sony will be released today, an EA spokesperson said.
John Reseburg, EA senior director of corporate communications, issued the following statement to GameSpot: “The confusion in the release lists was an error; Sony will be correcting it today. Watch their feeds for an update.”
Sony has yet to issue the new PS4 developer list and a company representative was not available to comment. When the company does provide a new list of developers, this story will be updated with the new information.
