The absence of EA titles on the new Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X is not expected to be permanent as the developers will be keeping an eye on their success before they decide to invest a substantial amount of money on developing games for them. Some of the most popular games that are available have been produced by EA such as FIFA 13, Most Wanted and also Need For Speed. To enable Windows 8 and Blackberry 10 to compete with the most popular services such as iOS and Android they will be offering a wide range of applications to attract consumers. If these new platforms prove to be successful the absence of AE titles should be short lived, so watch this space.
The launch of the new HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920 will be available very soon and it looks like we may have to be patient in the wait for EA titles to appear.
