Seven more publishers have agreed to offer their games on Origin, led by Remedy's Alan Wake. The others are Focus Home Interactive, Iceberg Interactive, Strategy First, Macro Games, Selectsoft and Legendo Entertainment. They join 14 previously announced Origin partners, including Warner, THQ and Capcom.

According to EA, Origin now has more than 9.3 million registered users, with daily active users peaking at more than one million players, and partnerships with 21 third party publishers. Since June 2011, sales on Origin have generated more than $100 million in revenue.

Senior vice president of Origin David DeMartini said: "The momentum that we've achieved with Origin since launching in June has been incredible, buoyed by great games and great partners.

"Our fast-growing user base demonstrates the interest from gamers across the world in fully-connected, 365-day digital game experiences. We're committed to evolving and expanding Origin to help players get the absolute most out of their games, and we're just getting started."
