EA is not revealing at this time which games will be using Unreal Engine 3 in the future. Commenting on how important this is to EA Frank Gibeau, President at EA had this to say:

“With the largest and most talented studio operation in the world, it’s critical for us to give our studio teams the best tools they need to make great games.”
