In announcing the inauguration of development house EA Chicago's new downtown Chi-town digs, Electronic Arts today also ran down the projects the developer has on its plate at the moment.

The 150-developer studio is currently working on a trio of titles for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360: the previously announced Def Jam: Icon, a licensed title, and a fighting game based on a new intellectual property. To accommodate the demands of the projects, EA plans to add another 100 developers to the studio next year.
