Electronic Arts is significantly expanding its Austin, Texas, operations, part of which involves building up a new EA Sports team.

The new team will support existing EA Sports studios located in Florida and Vancouver and isn't a shifting of resources from a downsized studio elsewhere, according to a report by Joystiq.

"Orlando's expanding, Burnaby's expanding, EA's growing," EA Sports COO Daryl Holt told the website. He also mentioned that the new development unit will start out focusing on HD platforms and later expand to "emerging" markets.

Does this mean that the company will manage to get an NBA game out this year?
