Rumor: Microsoft and EA Entering Partnership

Easoft 1024x516


Two unknown sources (apparently not affiliated with EA or Microsoft) have told CVG that a partnership between EA Games and Microsoft is in the works. Typically we’re seeing things like DLC exclusivity out of EA, and not necessarily first party development deals.

What if, however EA’s online distribution service Origin was at play here? Anyone that has a Windows 8 OS on their PC knows that the EA Origin Service is part of the default programs Windows 8 installs.

Could EA be partnering to offer all of their titles via day one digital on Microsofts Next Xbox?
