Default NaturalMotion [devs of Backbreaker Football] working on Icebreaker

Looks like Icebreaker is going to be a new hockey game.

Icebreaker crashing the boards sometime soon?
According to a BBC video profile (see below) of Oxford-based NaturalMotion Games, the developer is now working on Icebreaker, a follow-up to this summer's unlicensed football installment, Backbreaker.

In the video, NaturalMotion developers detail the work that has been done thus far on the project, which includes motion-capturing hockey players and designing the virtual skaters' look.

Although no one in the video says the name Icebreaker, when the video pans to the art designer, the Icebreaker logo (resembling Backbreaker's) is clearly visible. 505 Games published Backbreaker, but the publisher has not said anything about Icebreaker to date. As of press time, 505 Games had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment or clarification on the matter.
Backbreaker was released on the PS3, Xbox 360, and iOS. I wonder if this means that Icebreaker would be coming to iOS as well?

It's kind of funny that a UK based company first makes and American Football game, then an Ice Hockey game.
