EA’s CFO has confirmed via an Earnings Call that they are working on games for PS5 alongside Xbox Scarlet.

We’re working hard on building games for next year on Gen 5, I think that’s obvious. I think everybody in the industry is doing that.

As has happened in the past, not all games will come out on Gen 5 immediately. Obviously, games like Madden, you probably bring the Gen 5 game out when the Gen 5 console ships, not when Madden itself ships.

We’ll be ready on Gen 5, we’re very excited about it and we’ve been working on it for some time.

EA CFO Blake Jorgensen

So while he didn’t believe either console will come out before Madden (which usually hovers around August of each year), he does believe that the game will hit the consoles at launch. EA joins Ubisoft, Activision Blizzard, some Sony Interactive Entertainment studios, and more confirming support for the next PlayStation.

Microsoft confirmed Scarlet for the Holiday of 2020, while Sony Interactive Entertainment has not said anything about the release of their next console. Nintendo remains the only company with a 9th generation console on the market, the Nintendo Switch.
