EA Reveals SEED, Their New Research Division

EA revealed a brand new research division called SEED, which stands for Search for Extraordinary Experiences Division.

Not much is known about the studio and their future plans, but we do know is that it’ll involve them working with new technologies for Microsoft’s upcoming Project Scorpio.

EA is planning to reveal more projects being developed at SEED in the near future.

  • Yay more mediocrity.

  • Migi

    Most likely their SJW and pandering division considering every game that was announced right now had either a trailer with a black guy or a woman in it.

  • Cubed Grapes

    Seems like a program for adopting independent projects to be whored out and ultimately killed.

  • sanic

    sounds bad at least at first impression.

  • Audie Bakerson

    The evil alien parasites from Phantasy Star Universe?

  • Pilebunker

    Makes me wonder why they made this. Was what they were doing before hurting their sales or what? Maybe they’re actually starting to run out of IPs to ruin. What is left for them to destroy anyway?

  • InkViper

    Saw the presentation on this and thought immediately, “this sounds like a Peter Molyneux pitch”, but with two scoops bullshit this time!

  • Neojames82

    AKA: “Search for more companies to buy out and destroy.”

  • Fenrir007

    Borg Inc.

    Was really looking to feel uneasy today, thanks EA!

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    This is EA instead of Lionhead; you get the whole damn carton of bullshit you fat fuck.

  • OldPalpy

    This will produce nothing but trash but it’s spinoff EA SEED Astray will be way better.

  • OldPalpy

    And does it have to with Scorpio? Pumping out more polygons is the last thing they should be worried about.

  • Paganator

    If all you need for some media to be pandering to SJW is the presence of a black man or a woman, then the term has lost meaning. Let’s try to avoid reinforcing the stereotype that gamers hote women and minorities.

  • Migi

    In general i wouldn’t give a fuck but nowadays its really is getting rubbed in our faces.
    I hope you like Political and ideology agenda pushing in gaming cause i’m sick and tired of it.

  • Neojames82

    I sadly kinda agree. I mean, I’m all for women and minorities taking the lead roles in gaming. I even have an idea of an African British woman being a leading role in one of my gaming ideas (think of her like Motoko Kusanagi).

    But thing is, people have to remember that you have to write likable and interesting characters first. What their race; gender and sexuality will be is really secondary in the grand scheme of things. If these so called SJWs want the general population to care about such things then you have to make a character that they’ll actually give a shit about them.

    This whole notion that we have to mark off a list from some PC coalition and get their nodding heads for approval is nonsense.

  • Paganator

    Was it rubbed in our faces in this instance? I haven’t watched the whole presentation, but the trailers I’ve seen didn’t shove political correctness in our faces.

  • MusouTensei

    Sounds pretentious as fuck.

  • Migi

    just watch the whole presentation, The whole donating 1 million to their useless SJW charities not to mentioning their denial of useless diversity being the fault that Mass effect sucks. You do know that EA employes nutjobs SJW right?
    From their open racist Designer Manveer Heir, Not to mention the nujob doing the writing for Star wars :BF2 being a massive SJW even making comments about so called white privilege. I don’t recall having to work 40+ hours a week a privilege.

    The writing is getting convoluted nowadays. Just look at the kinda ppl writing marvel comics.

    Thanks god Marvel came to their sense and cancelled most of em.

    EA now had more then enough SJW ppl exposed that have zero talent other than having the same bullshit ideology. Here is a nice read on how full of bullshit EA has become.
