EA has announced that they are currently working on 15 games for the upcoming iOS 8 including the recently announced SimCity Buildit along with Fifa 15 Ultimate Team.

Frank Gibeau is the vice president of EA Mobile and says that with the reveal of iphone 6, it feels as if we are truly heading towards next-gen consoles like capabilities.

“Here’s what was obvious: the combination of the beautiful screen, stronger processing power, better battery life and increased storage capacity tells us that we’re getting to next generation console-level capabilities with the new devices. Right in the palm of your hand,”

The new iphone 6 and 6 plus were received pretty well by EA saying that they “loved” what they saw and the company looks excited to explore the gaming possibilities provided by these devices.

The Redmond Based company has 15 titles for the iOS 8 in development as revealed by Gibeau on the company’s official website.

We’ve worked over the summer to be ready for the new OS, and we’ll be there in a couple of weeks with our full existing portfolio when iOS8 goes live. We also have a dozen games in the pipeline that will launch over the next year, and today we’re announcing the first three. FIFA 15 Ultimate Team will be available later this month. Then Peggle Blast and SimCity BuildIt will launch in the fall.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available on Friday, September 19, with pre-orders set to begin on Friday, September 12. Excited?
