EA Is Reportedly Ending Support For Wild Hearts
EA is ending support for Omega Force’s action role-playing game, Wild Hearts, based on the latest information.
According to a moderator of the official Discord channel for Wild Hearts, EA has decided to end support for the game. They added that it appeared the publisher did not want to give it the time to develop and establish a wider audience. They mentioned that people who don’t know them are likely wondering who their sources are, but, as per them, “the obvious is obvious”.
The expectation was for it to become a competitor to Capcom’s Monster Hunter series. Seeing as that didn’t happen and it didn’t turn into the multi-million dollar franchise the publisher had expected, EA has apparently decided to pull the plug on support.
The Reddit moderator also hinted at the possible announcement of Monster Hunter 6 at Tokyo Game Show 2023. They said that while Wild Hearts didn’t get the opportunity that it deserved, there is light at the end of the tunnel for fans with Capcom’s upcoming entry in the Monster Hunter series.
Wild Hearts is a 2023 action role-playing game developed by Omega Force and published by Electronic Arts under its EA Originals label. The game’s objective is to hunt massive monsters in Azuma, a fantasy world inspired by feudal Japan. It was released for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S on February 17, 2023.
Players take on the role of a nameless hunter tasked with hunting down colossal monsters called Kemono in the world of Azuma. Azuma consists of several large areas for exploration, although it is not an open world. The game offers eight different weapon types, including wagasa and katana. Besides using these weapons to defeat enemies, players can craft items to aid in combat using the Karakuri mechanic. For example, players can create crates for leaping off to perform powerful attacks or torches for igniting enemies.
