Overstrike to be shown later this summer

Electronic Arts explains E3 absence.

Last year, EA and Insomniac Games announced Overstrike, a new IP from the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance developer, to be in production for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We haven’t heard more since its initial reveal, and it was absent at this year’s E3. If EA labels president Frank Gibeau is anyone to go by, however, it will be shown later this summer.

“We’re very excited about Overstrike“, Gibeau told CVG at E3. “It’s a new IP and we want to make it the right game, so they’re taking some extra time to nail the gameplay and the quality.

“It felt like we would stand out better later in the summer once we’ve hit some key milestones and we’re able to show off more,” he said.

EA has also said it plans to show two new Wii U games this summer.
