Electronic Arts: We’re Not Focused on 3D, “it Just Doesn’t Seem to be a Major Factor”

August 21, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

If Sony’s showings at E3 and gamescom are any indication, the future of stereoscopic 3D isn’t all too promising. The company has been a big proponent of the technology in years past, but we haven’t seen them push it at all in the past several months, with not a mention of the tech at last week’s convention in Germany.

As such, EA has no plans of focusing on 3D at all for the foreseeable future. A couple years back, Peter Moore expressed his disinterest in the technology and now two years later as the COO of EA he’s been proven right, telling Eurogamer:

And what an oracle I seem like! 

3D is certainly not in any way on our list of things we are focused upon as a company. I look at gaming, and it just doesn’t seem to be a major factor.

It’s just not a technology particularly in our world of gaming that seems to have got traction. If I was skeptical 18 months ago I remain skeptical.
