Earnings calls occasionally are good for little morsels of information that have yet to leak out publicly, and in this case, it looks like they inadvertently revealed that they are working on a new Peggle game for mobile.

Now, this could be Peggle 2. The game launched on Xbox One, but has already made its way to Xbox 360, and it seems likely to make it to other platforms. The original Peggle [$0.99 / $0.99 (HD)] and Peggle Nights made their way to iOS in full, so it's easy to think that, hey, maybe this is Peggle 2 for mobile.

But, the dark cloud to potentially rain on our Peggle parade is that there's that free-to-play version of Peggle that soft-launched in New Zealand. And that could be precisely what they're talking about, despite, you know, being actually available right now in a corner of the world.

But we here at Touch Arcade are nothing if not optimists, so we're going to hope that it's Peggle 2, or that Peggle 2 is in fact coming, despite the existence of a separate free-to-play version. Or hey, maybe it's something entirely different and unexpected. Time will tell.

    I hope it's Peggle 2! I've been waiting for this for so long!

    Oh man

    It's hard to see how EA won't screw up this franchise too, but I would be thrilled to be proven wrong.

    Let's hope they don't make it heavy on the iap, then call it a failure and then fire everyone on the team. Buts it's EA.

    Please be Peggle 2. I'm not paying $510 just to play it especially when I would play it WAY more on mobile than on Xbox One.

    They are obviously talking about the F2P game. You are seriously deluded if you think EA, of all people, are suddenly going to scrap a soft-launched iOS cash grab in favor of the for-pay console version that wouldn't make any money on mobile. Why does this article exist

    They've ruined every franchise they've laid their hands on. I've already written it off as DOA.

    The next Peggle game that releases for iOS will be free-to-play, regardless of what it's called. Peggle 2 for mobile will be free. They are trying to compete with Papa Pear Saga, which has waaayyyy more downloads and active players than all of the Peggle games combined.

    Peggle 2 on Xbox is kinda mixed. Some of the new Peggle Masters are kind of lame, but others (like Gnorman) are over-powered. Also, unlike Peggle 1, in Peggle 2 the same player always gets to go first, which is an unfair built-in advantage. Maybe they'll fix that for iPad.

      I played some guy on Xbox last night and beat him 5 games in a row. He was Gnorman, and I was Bjorn unicorn. He even had both power shots one game. He still lost. Then rage-quit. Sorry to brag, but I just have to somewhere. Thanks for listening. Carry on now.

    Eat shit and die EA with filthy money grabbing P2P structures. Personally I never down freemium titles because sometimes you need to make a stand you what you feel is right.
    SO RISE UP AND UNITE AGAINST THE FACIST REGIME!! Just kidding, don't download if you don't like it!
