Unravel was announced at E3 2015 in early June. Coldwood is an indie studio that's made a variety of different types of games in its past, including titles like Ski Racing 2005, Freak Out, and The Fight: Lights Out. Unravel was promising enough that Battlefield developer DICE set Coldwood up with EA, which offered to publish the game.

During EA's earnings call, the company also stated that it's seen "momentum" with its sales for its upcoming fiscal year. In addition, EA revealed that Star Wars: Battlefront has seen "extremely strong preorders."

Unravel is planned for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Its Q4 2016 release puts it in the same window as two other EA games, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Not much else is known about Unravel at the moment, but keep an eye on GameSpot for more news in the coming months.
